Quantcast

The nerd book on porn

Livre Sur Le Porno

If pornography has not been reserved for men for a while, many women still oscillate between fascination, disgust and guilt in front of these images from the sex industry.

Fortunately, Claire Richard is there to put your ideas in place and relax you from watching porn quiet or like any guy. In her book Les paths de desire (textual adaptation of her radio fiction on Arteradio ), the journalist explores feminine desire without judgment through the learning of pornography of yesterday and today. Why this book should be put in everyone's hands.

For his universal character

In this singular and finely written book, Claire Richard stages the evolution of a young girl who looks like us. It was after a Sunday lunch with her grandparents that the pre-teen narrator came across a pile of erotic comics for the first time.

Livre de Pauline Réage

First shock: his crotch reacts squarely to the drawings of naked women with huge breasts. Rebelote when she falls, in Angoulême , on a comic strip inspired by the novel cul (te) Une histoire d'O by Pauline Réage : a volcanic brunette dominates an innocent blonde with a whip. Then begins the exploration of a young girl for her body and her own desire: first alone with the memory of these images and her shower head, then with TV shows like Carré rose on M6 then on the Internet sites that begin to flourish including the well-known YouPorn ...

Because you can watch porn while being a feminist

Do you feel guilty about watching porn while parading in the street to defend the rights of women? Take a deep breath and rest assured: pornography is not necessarily the enemy of feminism . A certain type of porn (in particular present on Youporn ) focuses more on the pleasure of the woman by freeing itself from the famous trilogy “ blowjob-penetration-facial cumshot ”: exit straight porn which features exclusively female bodies intended to make men ejaculate.

The author-narrator, yet herself straight, proclaims loud and clear that watching lesbian porn (which is deeply focused on female pleasure) is “ a deeply feminist act ”. God Bless Youporn !

Because porn stimulates the imagination

If porn often gets a bad press, if it is accused of distorting the imaginations of young people, the narrator (and surely the author) insists on the fact that it also has the power to open up access to areas unknown to oneself. For example, just because you feel 100% straight doesn't mean you can't get devilishly horny in front of lesbian videos.

At the time, the young woman in the book discovered this field of possibilities for the first time thanks to Youporn's ancestor, Revebebe , who is twenty this year. The site lists many erotic stories themes more or less pointed: anal tongue, tit, geisha balls ...

In this " great tree of fantasies of the world ", our heroine learns to trace her own path of desire. If in her emotional life she feels attracted to the opposite sex , the figure of the " submissive lesbian woman " offers her many more orgasms than her sexual relations with men. To meditate...
