We are beyond chuffed that our Experience Goddess and co-founder, Oonie Chase, was singled out for her language-brilliance in this great list of cunninglinguists by Tricia Rosetty!
When it comes to finding content with verbal precision, Experience Goddess Oonie Chase nailed it. In an industry that’s traditionally ignored the nuance of human sexuality, MakeLoveNotPorn.tv aspires to offer us more.
Previously, options for finding erotic content included: search based on sex act terms or stereotypical roles, recommendations from others, looking at a few tiny scene captures, and good old trial and error. In short, the majority of pornography (and ways of finding it), relied upon objectification rather than something deeper.
Since MLNP took an unconventional approach to providing erotic video, it makes perfect sense that they took a likewise unconventional approach to finding it. The team created language around this material not previously available, using tags like: tender, talkative, joyful, married, and sensual. When’s the last time you saw that in the back room of your local sex shop? It’s truly inspiring to see an industry building a sophisticated language around what was mostly grunting and pointing before.”
