“I date younger men, predominantly men in their 20s. And when I date younger men, I have sex with younger men.”

So begins Cindy Gallop’s 2009 TED Talk.  “And when I have sex with younger men, I encounter the real ramifications of the ubiquity of hardcore pornography in our culture. There’s an entire generation growing up that believes that what you see in hardcore pornography is the way that you have sex.” Then, the petite 49-year-old with a proper British accent instructs anyone in the crowd with delicate sensibilities to cover their ears, before continuing. “I have no problem responding, ‘No, thank you, I’d much rather you did not come on my face.’ But my concern is with the young girl…who doesn’t want [her boyfriend] to come on her face, but hardcore porn has taught her that all men love coming on women’s faces…and therefore she must let him come on her face, and she must pretend to like it.” It was the “come on my face” heard ’round the world, and the TED Talk went instantly viral. But Gallop wasn’t there just to vent her frustrations with past lovers. She was there to present her latest project, MakeLoveNotPorn.com, a website where the myths of porn sex are contrasted with the facts of real sex, and visitors are invited to add their own experiences to the mix.
