What makes this different than other online porn? It’s real people having sex and it’s softcore, so you should thank her that your teenagers now may have more softcore porn to look at to mold their ideas about sex and sexuality.

I think it’s great to have more real people and relationships represented in porn, I’m just a little sad that this has to suffice as an educational tool for teenagers. I applaud Cindy’s entrepreneurial spirit, though. Way to tap into all demographics, Cindy. Convince parents they should be subscribing to this – because teens are totally going to watch porn that their parents turned them on to. No pun intended. I probably would have been horrified if my parents approached me with this – but I grew up before Internet porn was the norm.

On the website’s landing page Gallop says: “I date younger men, usually in their 20s, and came up with the idea for MakeLoveNotPorn based on direct personal experience.” She’s 53. She noticed that the young men she was sleeping with seemed to fall into actions that seemed scripted on a porn set. She was troubled by this. I’m a little troubled when people in their fifties date people in their twenties – but who cares what I think. They are all consenting adults.

ABC News reports, “for millions of kids, hardcore porn is becoming the default sex ed.” That is terrifying. Cindy says that young boys and grown men alike have a warped view of what sex is because of hardcore porn. If the way kids are learning about sex these days is via the Internet, there had better be some avenues that show sexual intimacy in a truer light.

Clearly, the optimal situation would be one in which parents could communicate with their kids well enough to teach them about the realities of sex. Unfortunately, this isn’t always possible. I’m all for having more porn out there that tries to show women in a better light, attempts to show couples in love, and doesn’t always involve aggressive men, shaved women and things that I have frankly never heard said in a bedroom.
