I am taking the day off to ponder love, sex and porn.
My pal Steven Otero at Sexy Spirits has been sending me links to new research and theory on porn. New York magazine did a cover package on the subject a few weeks ago. My lawyer/lover/cousin sent me articles from legal journals on the role cyberporn plays in divorces. In yesterday's New York Times, Manohla Dargis asked in "The Closing of the American Erotic", a brilliant opinion essay, "Whatever happened to sex in the movies?" As he notes, one American film from 2010, "Blue Valentine" contains highly charged, sophisticated adult sexual content.
Sex is now relegated to porn, where it is rarely done well. At the movies, we get violence, the blood and gore that makes a film distinctly American.
This week on SexyPrime, we're talking about love and sex and porn--and I hope you will weigh in, especially on the survey that will run on Friday. If you miss Auntie Sue today, click on the category Ask Auntie Sue on the right hand side of the page and re-visit the past columns.
I love my readers, not just on Valentines Day, but every day. Thank you for connecting with me and making blogging so enjoyable.
