“If tomorrow, women woke up and decided they really liked their bodies, just think how many industries would go out of business.”
dr. gail dines

“Porn is now so deeply embedded in our culture that it has become synonymous with sex to such a point that to criticize porn is to get slapped with the label anti-sex.

But what if you are a feminist who is pro-sex in the real sense of the word, pro that wonderful, fun, and deliciously creative force that bathes the body in delight and pleasure, and what you are actually against is porn sex? A kind of sex that is debased, dehumanized, formulaic, and generic, a kind of sex not based on individual fantasy, play, or imagination, but one that is the result of an industrial product created by those who get excited not by bodily contact but by market penetration and profits? Where, then, do you fit in the pro-sex, anti-sex dichotomy when pro-porn equals pro-sex?”
Gail Dines, Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality

“Pornography is to sex what McDonalds is to food. A plasticized, generic version of the real thing.”
Gail Dines
