It’s Time for Porn to Change by Erika Lust (Full Transcript)

I have two daughters, Lara, 7, and Liv, 4; and I don’t want them to learn about self-esteem and body image from Photoshopped supermodels. I don’t want them to smoke, I don’t want them to eat crappy fast food, and I definitely don’t want them to learn about sex from bad, sexist porn.

We need to teach our children to respect and value themselves and their sexuality. We need to teach them to think critically about sexual representations. And that, whether you like it or not, includes porn.

Imagine a scene. A different scene. I see a man, an attractive man. He weaves his way through the wet streets of a city. He is on his way to meet a woman. A woman he met recently at an event. It was an inspiring event. An event that made his senses soar. It was a TEDx. It was this TEDx. And cut. I don’t know how this scene ends. I leave it up to your imagination.

But I do know that this time, he’s not the only one receiving pleasure. And that, for me, is an idea worth spreading your legs for. Thank you.
