TORONTO – A website is trying to make sure people know that pornography is fiction by hosting user-submitted videos of real people having “real sex.”

The website was born out of a 2009 TED Talk given by Cindy Gallop. She argued in her talk that pornography had distorted the way young men view sex.

“[Cindy Gallop] found that a lot of them, when they got in bed with them, they were replicating porn movies and not in the way that she felt it was malicious, or they were bad guys, but just that they were learning all about sex, and what to do in bed and what women want, from pornography,” Sarah Beall, the website’s curator said in an interview Friday.

Her website, MakeLoveNotPorn.tv, is seeking to change that. The website accepts user-submitted videos of people having sex. Beall then reviews them and decides which are uploaded for registered members to see.

“We curate it to make sure that it’s of course consensual, that it’s contextualized, that it’s creative, that it’s sometimes ‘condom hot’ as we like to say. And just to make sure that it’s the sex that people have in their everyday lives,” she said.
