Porn Star Nina Hartley: Pornography Is ‘Not Meant To Be A Rulebook’ / Huffington Post

It seems like common sense that sex in porn doesn’t mirror what men and women do in their own, non-commercialized bedrooms. But this point gets really driven home in “Porn Sex vs Real Sex: The Differences Explained With Food,” a video [inspired by MLNP.com – ed] which shatters the illusion the porn is anything like real sex by going back to basics: fruit metaphors.

Inspired by the video, HuffPost Live spoke to women working in the porn industry, and asked them to share what they believe the difference between porn sex and real sex is.

Jincey Lumpkin, Esq., Chief Sexy Officer of Juicy Pink Box, noted that porn involves, “posturing for the camera,” “flattering” angles and “cutting together of the scenes” — all of which, if reenacted by normal people, can “take away sometimes from the pleasure and enjoyment aspect” of their sexual experiences.

Nina Hartley, an adult film actress, agreed, emphasizing the performative aspect of porn. She told HuffPost Live host Caitlyn Becker:

Pornography is a paid, professional performance by actors. It is a fantasy, it is not meant to be a rulebook and guidebook or a how to as a general rule. And it goes to show how poor our sex education is in this country that people are reduced to looking at an entertainment medium for information about the body.

You can watch to the whole conversation right here!

    Love what they did with the food demonstration! I also love and agree with Ms. Nina Hartley. Porn should NOT be your go-to resource for sex information.

    I couldn’t agree more. With the “pornification” of today’s pop culture and lack of adequate and realistic programs for healthy sex education in our country, porn will be used for education instead of entertainment.
