Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference.

Porn World vs Real World


In 2009, MakeLoveNotPorn founder and CEO, Cindy Gallop, launched MakeLoveNotPorn.com at TED. The site was made up of a short series of images intended to juxtapose the myths of hardcore porn alongside the way sex happens in the real world. The site received a huge response from people of all backgrounds, ages, sexual orientations, and genders, and this feedback was the inspiration for MakeLoveNotPorn.tv.

These 6 #pornworld vs #realworld infographics continue to help people from around the world better understand how to have porn-cliche free #realworldsex. We’ve put them here so they can continue to be accessible to all.

    I loved your 6 porn world myth busters, but now that you have them in a slideshow, the control buttons obscure the words. Any way to reposition the control buttons?

    NICE SITE!πŸ–’

    TRICKER THE BRAIN AND TICKEL HER SENSES TO LET HER BE HORNY IS REALY MAKING A DIFFRENDS.

    THAT PART IS MOSTLY MISSSING IN THE PRAGMATIC BRAIN OF A PORNO MEN WHO ONLY KNOWS AND LIKES THE PORN HURRY OF ONLY SOLO SEX. YES,.. MEN ARE MUSSING OUT!!!!
    JUST THE PART BY NOT BEEING CURIOUS IS A DOWN FALL. JUST NOT KNOWING WHAT A LADY REALY LIKES IN BED TO BE A SLUT. SO A LOT OF PORNO MEN OR JUST STUK TO SOLO SEX / PORNO FOR MEN.
    AND THAN MEN REALY ARE MISSING OUT ON REAL MINDBLOWING SEX FOR 2 OR MORE IN REAL LIFE . BUT ONLY THE REAL GOOD LOVER KNOW THAT!

    FOR A LOT OF LADIES IT FEELS LIKE THAT THE PORNO MEN DO NOT REALY CARE OR EVEN HATE A REAL WORM PUUR HORNY LADY IN BED OR WHERE EVER!!
    OR IS THAT A REAL MALE EGO PROBLEM???

    BEING A GOOD LOVER IS BEING CURIOUS AND A REAL GENTLEMEN IN WHAT MAKE THE OTHER TICK BY PLAYING THE GAME GAME TOGHETER IN THE STAPS FROM LOVE AND PORNA TOO PORNO. A BRAIN OF A LADY HAD MORE SEX MOVES THAN A MOST MEN REALY KNOW!

    A REAL GOOD LOVER IS LIKE A NEEDLE IN A HAYSTAG BUT CHERISED WITH MORE OUTSENDING SEX!

    AND I AM A LADY WHO SWINGS AL READY MORE THAN 10 YEARS. AND GIVE LESSONS IN BEING A GOOD LOVER.

    NOTHING WRONG BY EDUCATING YOURSELF WHEN WE TALK ABOUT LOVE AND SEX.

    Most of your slides are very good, but the one about anal sex has a bad analogy. You can’t compare anal sex for a woman with how a guy would feel if another GUY sticks his cock up his butt! A better analogy would be how it would feel if a woman sticks a dildo up a man’s butt. Nowhere near as gross as the first option, but a much better analogy.

    This is such an important message! The infographics are a great way of breaking down the issue, drawing comparisons and generating understanding.
    Have look at our page Porn-no-Way if you’re interested in helping debunk the pressures and expectations that young women feel as a result of mainstream porn. It’s hard for women to understand and own our sexual identities, especially when we feel like we have to confirm to the practices, looks and ways of thinking that are presented in mainstream porn.

    I like where this is coming from and this is helpful in many ways, but it is super heteronormative. Any resources for young folks in the LGTBQIA+ community that you know of? Are you willing to make your resources a bit more inclusive for those young folks looking for information? Love, a hetero ally.

      Hi T.D., Thanks so much for your support and your incredibly valid feedback πŸ™‚ The original MLNP.com graphics were created a long time ago and we have always intended to expand them to be more LGBTQA+ inclusive but until now have not had the resources to address that. We are a tiny team who have until very recently been fighting a daily battle to exist. Based on your comment, our team is now looking to find resources about porn-cliches that directly affect LGBTQA+ folks and we’ll add them to this thread soon πŸ™‚ In terms of MLNP.tv, we are actively working to find more LGBTQ+ MLNPstars so that we can represent more diversity on MLNP and so that folks who identify as LGBTQIA+ can access videos that show people they identify with having porn-cliche free #realworldsex. Here is a post from awhile back where we talk about our challenges: https://talkabout.makelovenotporn.tv/2013/07/10/make-lgbtq-love-not-porn/ People who are 18+ can also check out our videos tagged Queer, Gay, and Lesbian on MLNP.tv. We are aware that our site is not as diverse as it should be and now that we are funded, we will be putting resources towards changing that. We really appreciate your support and will be taking your feedback on board! All the best, Sarah
