When a man watches a woman get fucked on screen, he sees his conquest, his fuck doll, his wet-dream inspired perfect sex object, served up for him on a silver platter, gift wrapped and ribboned, ready for his consumption. But a woman- she sees herself. She masturbates to her own objectification, commodification, dehumanization and sexual punishment. She masturbates to ‘shut up and take it, slut’. She masturbates to ‘I’ll shove two dry fingers in your cunt, that’ll teach you’. She masturbates to ‘this is what your body is for. A vessel for my cock. A meal to chew up and spit out. A body to wipe drool and semen on. This is who you are’.
Gia London on what it’s like to watch mainstream porn as a woman
I think this also applies to non-porn media as well to the lesser extent of “You only exist to make the man aroused.” Which is why to an extent I will call media “porn” even when there’s no explicit sex. It’s all there to make a man horny in the end.
