I do think that there is media around that's a bad influence and I'm sure Pandora like anyone would agree. I've been quite support of American feminist Anita Sarkeesian in her claim that violent, sexist video games are a bad influence, but her solution is based around creating better video games, not outlawing games. Much like Pandora has talked about making better porn. But I guess the law has generalized spanking porn saying "It encourages violence and disrespect". I guess I'll have to be totally frank and say that SOME spanking films in my eyes makes women look weak. I've often downloaded spanking films and watched them with the sound off because I get offended at the way the spanker talks down to the spankee sometimes. I've had a problem with this for a while, but I think I have sort of learned to accept that not everybody quite sees it the way I do. What offends me about a woman's treatment doesn't necessarily offend her or other women watching. I often say that there are many different ways of reading a picture or film and just because one person says it's sexy, sexist, harmful or whatever doesn't mean everybody is going to read it that way. It's not like the written word. And just because someone reads a picture a certain way, doesn't mean that it was intended to be read that way. I do think that producers do have a responsibility to be careful and thoughtful about what they produce and consider how it might be read by the consumers, but the consumers also have a the responsibility of perceiving it in a fair, reasonable way and realize that their perception is partly based on who they are as a person and how they are inclined to perceive things and not necessarily based on the intentions of the producer. If the UK government wants ban something, thinking that it'll change society for the better, then I can think of far better places to start than on spanking porn. I mean maybe spanking porn isn't innocent, but Dreams of Spanking is probably the classiest, most professional and least offensive pornographic business I know of. It's really unfair that Pandora and her crew should have to suffer like this when there are people and businesses out there far more deserved of getting whacked with new legal restrictions.
