P*rn for Women

 By Shamus Aug 14, 2007 37 comments

A standard gripe against porn is that it depicts women as simple objects of male fulfillment. Their behavior is unrealistic and they often set standards that real women can’t hope to meet. Now the tables are turned: P*rn for Women.

Brace yourself gentlemen. While safe for work, these pics can be quite graphic and sometimes shocking. I found a lot of them to be very degrading to the so-called “men” they depicted. I wonder what happened to them in the past that would make them behave this way. How can they allow themselves to be used like this? Poor guys.

I hope my wife stays away from this sort of thing. The last thing I want is for her to see it and expect me to do stuff like that.

I do not usually endorse censorship of any kind, but in this case it may be needed.

Ewwww.

    Disgusting. I really don’t see what women get out of that stuff. It’s just… gross.

  2. Alexis Li says:

    In flagrant disregard of the joke… pr0n for women is alive, well and called slash. It’s a scary world out there.

    Of all of that pr0nz0r, I’m only guilty of two of them. I vacuum, and I occasionally ask for directions.

    because she doesn’t vacuum properly, and I hate taking forever to get anywhere.

    Great Scot, what is that man doing with that household appliance?
    **SHUDDER**

  5. GreyDuck says:

    Hi-freaking-larious! (Luckily neither of the women I’m dating get excited about shoe shopping, the only thing in that image gallery which makes me cringe.)

  6. AnnMCN says:

    Ahh.. How very…explicit!

  7. milw770 says:

    No means NO.

    A man should not “just go along with” things he does not enjoy just to fulfill his partner’s needs. “Relax, loosen up, have some more wine and try to get into it,” is a crime. When will men respect their bodies enough not to use them for the pleasure of their partners?

  8. Marmot says:

    As amazon reviews said: hysteric fun. LOL!

  9. I would never, ever, ever do at least one of those things. Then again, I have hardwood floors…

  10. Johan says:

    Here in Sweden some people refer to the yearly Ikea catalogue that is distributed to all households as “porn for women”…

  11. thebigkr says:

    Only one word needs to be said here:

    HERESY!

  12. Davey says:

    These images are totally demeaning towards men!

  13. Ozy says:

    Are there really so many women that lose all sense of their surroundings when they wake up at night that “falling in” is a meaningful concern, or is that just a myth? You’d think they’d learn to check after the first time it happened. At any rate, just lowering the seat is stupid. Lower the lid. It looks nicer.

  14. Corsair says:

    This is blasphemy! This is madness!

    (Sorry, it’s obligatory.)

  15. dragonbane says:

    Ozy: For years I’ve lowered the lid, mainly to prove a point. Not ONCE has a woman ever complained about sitting down on the lid in the middle of the night. I call shenanigans. :)

  16. ArchU says:

    Soon basic hygiene practises will be considered p0rn, too. The marketing madness must stop!

    Also I feel strongly that Johan’s comment (#11) could be construed accurately. Ikea should be all the p0rn that women need and more.

    I wonder if sensitive gay men consider these pictures to be suitable as p0rn…the mind boggles.

  17. Eric the vengeful says:

    Dude those are awesome tips, and believe me they work!!!!

  18. Nefke says:

    @#11: That´s why I got so excited when I received the Ikea cataloque yesterday! It all makes sense now! ;)

  19. Zaxares says:

    *scans the links*

    Huh. And here I was expecting to see men doing… Ehm, let’s not continue this conversation any further.

  20. Elethiomel says:

    I don’t get the joke. Those pictures and their accompanying text are demeaning to women. Why? Because it plays to stereotypes. The stereotypical woman that is depicted in that book loves shoe shopping, hates football, and so on and so forth. She is with those men not because of their intristic qualities or how they match well personally, but because they push her stereotypical buttons by telling her what she wants to hear.

    That book is telling women what they should like, which is even more insidious than telling men what women should be like in bed.

  21. Rebecca says:

    Elethiomel:

    Reminds me of that Futurama episode where they are trapped on the Amazonian planet:

    Thog: This our comedy club. Humour here funny in different way.
    Ornik: It not reinforce stereotypes.
    Kug: Comedy come from character, real situations. Not abstract craziness.
    Bender: Translation – Boring!
    *men laugh uproariously*

    Don’t worry, they end up sentenced to death by snu-snu.

  22. Kristin says:

    Dragonbane: if you sit on a lid, you realize you’re sitting on a lid, get up, and raise the lid.

    If you sit expecting a seat and don’t get one, you not only realize the seat’s not there, but your bum’s all wet too.

  23. Mari says:

    Y’know, I’m a pretty atypical woman (as, I’m sure, are more than a few women that read here) but that still got me all hot and bothered. You know what’s so sexy about watching a man vacuum the floor? It’s not the clean floor, it’s the reaching, bending, and stretching.

  24. Christian Groff says:

    “While safe for work, these pics can be quite graphic and sometimes shocking. I found a lot of them to be very degrading to the so-called “men” they depicted.”

    To the stereotypical man, maybe. I’m not the stereotypical guy and actually enjoyed looking at the images.

    (If you were joking around, I’m sorry. I tend to take things too literally.)

    I think the book was trying to “put men in irrational behavior and situations”, just like real porn puts women in crazy situations(since I don’t know whether I’d get flamed for putting R-rated stuff here, I won’t describe any) related to sex.

    But come on, whatever happened to the ideals of chivalry and gentlemanness from the 19th century? Oh right, they died when women requested equal rights.

  25. Tallis says:

    ROFL. That’s great! Now to make sure my GF never sees it…

  26. Namfoodle says:

    meh. I always close the lid before I flush. Because the Myth Busters proved that the potty flings poo germs onto your toothbrush every time you flush. Pee is only slightly less nasty. So I drop the lid every time. Well, almost.

  27. Deoxy says:

    Kristin,

    Oddly enough, I’ve never met a man who’s peed on the lid of the toilet. This is because we don’t assume the position of the lid or seat; we actually check. Maybe women should try that. I know, strange concept. Sorry.

    Of course, I’m actually with namfoodle (I always close the lid before I flush), and I only stand to pee with using a urinal (for similar hygienic reasons), so maybe I’m not the best authority on the matter.

  28. Cenobite says:

    I always sit. I’m too lazy to aim.

  29. Jaquandor says:

    You link something like that again, and you’re off the blogroll. I don’t come here for that kind of blatant trash! GAHHHH!!!

  30. Ryan says:

    All I’d like to say is that I never cease to be amazed at the people who cannot undertand irony or subtlety, especially on the internet.

  31. Ishmael says:

    This is the best thing in the history of things.

  32. Barron says:

    >But come on, whatever happened to the ideals of chivalry
    >and gentlemanness from the 19th century? Oh right, they
    >died when women requested equal rights.

    I’m not against chivalry or gender equality, but I’m not seeing the problem with the death of chivalry. Do you rush to open doors for random men? Would you start a fight to defend the honor of one of your male friends? If the answer is no, why should you be expected to do any of them for a woman who wants to be treated equal to a man?
    Treating someone you care about well is a different matter, and should be a two-way street. But equality means equality.

  33. John says:

    Men have always been known for their chivalry. If they are treated well by women, they get treated better in return. If women want to be taken good care of by their men, they need to respect and treat their men with dignity.
