More on Erotism X Porn

Continuing my point on the matter Erotism X Porn, I’d like to talk about a movie a saw recently on TV, The Dreamers, an erotic drama directed by Bernardo Bertolucci.

The story begins in 1968, when Matthew (Michael Pitt), an american student in the politically turbulent Paris,  meets the cinema obsessed Isabelle (Eva Green) and her twin brother Theo (Louis Garrel).

 When Isabelle and Theo parents leave for the summer, they invite Matthew to stay with them. While the revolution rages on outside, the three young people stay in the comfortable flat playing sexual games.

It’s a very erotic and intense movie, full of frontal nudes and sex scenes. I liked it very much and recommend it.

I’ve also watched a few times the TV show Sin Cities, which is more like a journalistic sex program, and I’m okay with it. There’s nothing offensive about that in the human sense.   It’s also full of strong sex images. The people and situations that appear there are real.  

The guy who presents the show, Ashley, takes part in the most bizarre things with a childlike spontaneity. I think he is funny.

So, why do I enjoy a movie like that and I can’t enjoy porn?

For me it’s clear and simple:

I can’t enjoy anything containing intolerable dirty words and images that depreciate a woman’s body and/or dehumanizes a woman, a child or anybody. I can’t enjoy any material produced to satisfy a chauvinistic male vision of a woman. Is a rape scene funny? I can’t see how.

I can’t consider myself a feminist and don’t like to confront anybody’s opinions. I’d rather be engaged in discussion than in argument. I’m just expressing my point of view.
