I'm not sure that you would have... it's just something that's been kicking around in my head for a while.

It's true that most porn, and certainly the industry, is pretty wretched, but I think source only addresses part of the question. Even were we to limit the scope to altporn sites, for instance, I think that there's still a judgement that will be placed upon a man who takes interest in them that is not present for a woman who frequents them. Similarly, were we to look at something like Harry Potter Slash fiction, the judgement placed upon women and men who enjoy it. On some level, one seems more deviant than the other.

Obviously, there's not going to be a neat summary here because I think the issue is just too complex. Talking about perceptions isn't even enough, since, as you've suggested, the psychology and even sociology of erotica come into play.

I will think on this.
