  • I don't think that porn or certain kinks done in the bedroom contributes much to real life sexism. If the woman consents to the sex acts, is happy with being a submissive masochist in the bedroom, and the man only engages in such behavior because they personally enjoy it, then it doesn't entail real sexism. Real sexism is mostly based on outdated religious and/or cultural views, misinformation, and/or being hurt by a member of the opposite sex, resulting in an irrational and cynical view of the opposite sex based on that negative experience. Personally, while I don't think it automatically translates to real life sexism, still, being tied up and degraded in the bedroom would turn me off big time. I never understood why some people find it kinky. Instead, of calling me a bitch or a slut, why not compliment me and tell me how good my pussy feels? That's much more of a turn on for me!

  • I voted yes but it's more complicated than that. If they enjoy it in the bedroom it's alright eventhough slut/bitch are offensive and sexist words (so if she enjoys it ok but to some other women don't even call them that).
    Also if you humiliate her for sexual reasons (like I said, with consent) it's ok but not outside; do not degrade her work, do not insult her or anything just for being a women.
    And the problem with porn is that only cares about men enjoyment, it doesn't show real things and doesn't really care about women arousal.

    • Thanks. its something i have been wondering about. especially female opinion is going to be interesting to see.

    • Hope it was helpful and I think many women agree. Also it's ok not to know because most of us were raised in a sexist environment, what's important is wanting to learn and improve and I like that some guys think about it too instead of just thinking that words like slut/bitch or degrading a women are normal things

  • Seems like folks want to scapegoat porn for bad upbringing. Men learn how to treat women when they're "boys", not from watching porn. They learn it from their dads, if they have them, and other family, long before they even understand what sex is all about.

  • I don't even understand how anybody gets off to that shit! I'm still watching the same big titty stepmom MILF POV porn I've been watching since high school...

    • You watch quality porn my friend.

    • Thank you sir!

  • It doesn't translate into sexism, because it's translated FROM sexism. It's a symptom of an already sexist culture which already degrades women. It's translated from the belief that the proper and feminine role of women is to be timid, docile, submissive, selfless, etc. It's those beliefs which then translate into our sex lives, and are promoted with the mass consumption of porn where women are being portrayed as sexual punching-bags.

    Will it make a man sexist to do those things? No, because he probably already was in many much more subtle ways. Doing these things is probably comfortably in line with the way he already feels about women and his rank above them as "the dominant sex".

    So no, these kinds of behaviors don't cause sexism, sexism causes these kinds of behaviors.

  • I really enjoy ALL of those things in the bedroom, but it doesn’t translate to me being harmful or disrespectful towards women outside of this context

  • Sometimes. Not always. Involves a great deal of trust. Some women like that in fantasy.

  • no i think degrading people is being a shitty person. and being a shitty person isn't sexism.

  • It certainly can. But it doesn't necessitate it

  • I think especially with younger people, definitely a yes. Since a good amount of teens haven't had any sexual experience, they dont know whats real and whats fake. The moment they start having experience, they would try and use techniques they saw in porn

  • Porn must not be translated into real life. Sex partner in actual relationship deserve respect and friendly treatment.

  • Yes, I think it does, those movie directors were chauvinists.

  • In my experience most women enjoy being sexually degraded. I wouldn't do it to them if they didn't. It has nothing to do with sexism IRL.
