This article reviews what is currently known about how men and women respond to the presentation of visual sexual stimuli. While the assumption that men respond more to visual sexual stimuli is generally empirically supported, previous reports of sex differences are confounded by the variable content of the stimuli presented and measurement techniques. We propose that the cognitive processing stage of responding to sexual stimuli is the first stage in which sex differences occur. The divergence between men and women is proposed to occur at this time, reflected in differences in neural activation, and contribute to previously reported sex differences in downstream peripheral physiological responses and subjective reports of sexual arousal. Additionally, this review discusses factors that may contribute to the variability in sex differences observed in response to visual sexual stimuli. Factors include participant variables, such as hormonal state and socialized sexual attitudes, as well as variables specific to the content presented in the stimuli.

Pornography: Men Possessing Women: Andrea Dworkin: liepaja.info: Books
Women's pornography , sometimes referred to as sex-positive pornography, is pornography often produced by women and aimed specifically at the female market — rejecting the view that pornography is only for men. In the s, writer Susie Bright pointed out that women's pornography "is a contradiction in terms for many people, so convinced are they that pornography represents the darker, gutter side of lust. Since that date, women have become accepted as a growing market when it comes to pornography. Women's pornography is produced and directed by women, and it is intended for the female audience. Women's porn directors focus on different styles, but pay particular attention to the actual story, the actors, music, locations, and aesthetics of the scenes. The directors main concern is making sure women enjoy the porn by making it realistic. The women's porn industry allows more women to have control and be in positions of power as directors.

Pornography often abbreviated porn is the portrayal of sexual subject matter for the exclusive purpose of sexual arousal. The term applies to the depiction of the act rather than the act itself, and so does not include live exhibitions like sex shows and striptease. The primary subjects of present-day pornographic depictions are pornographic models , who pose for still photographs, and pornographic actors or "porn stars", who perform in pornographic films. If dramatic skills are not involved, a performer in pornographic media may also be called a model. Various groups within society have considered depictions of a sexual nature immoral , addictive , and noxious, labeling them pornographic, and attempting to have them suppressed under obscenity and other laws, with varying degrees of success.
This is a topic I see brought up time and time again. Two thing these idiots — I mean, people, have in common here. They are both defending the public display of pornography through the argument that non-sexualised partial nudity is fine. They really, honestly believe there is no difference between non-sexualised natural nudity and posed, strongly coded pornography which sole purpose is to sexually stimulate.
