Women and porn: can’t we all just get along?

Call me crazy, but I’m one of those people who thinks women really do enjoy sex. In an interesting and I think bold move, Playboy announced plans to make their Playboy TV channel reflect more content appealing to women: more context for sex scenes, more intimacy depicted. Read about it here in the New York Times. Included in the new format will be reality shows, sex advice, and focus on relationships. Sort of like a cross between the WE Network and the Playboy Channel.

We shall see how they actually execute it: I could see it going a bit too far in the wrong direction and having the whole thing feel like an extended diamond commercial with sex scenes. But this is a good sign in terms of breaking down the old women-vs-porn debate. I for one am happy to move off of the “Porn is degrading to women” argument, and onto the “Let’s force production companies to make porn that is not.”
