Western culture hypersexualises women, this is nothing new. What is relatively new is the concept that this sexualisation is empowering, feminist even. As a woman who regularly talks about the many ways misogyny is harmful, when it comes to pornography, a common response is the perception I’m being anti-sex, prudish or judgemental. This derails a conversation that is about an industry, the way it operates and the multiple harmful effects, not about individual choice.
