This pretty much sums up my feelings about women doing porn ‘for free’

The full comic is here.

The sad thing is, women may be doing porn ‘for free’, but money is still being made, the free ‘youporn’ etc websites make money for their owners through advertising.

I’ve herd academic types use the term ‘gift economy’ to describe ‘free’ porn, I have a feeling that ‘gift economy’ means a hell of a lot more than uploading videos to free-to-view-but-still-commercial websites, in exchange for porn-consumers’ attention; it’s something I want to look into more and write about properly at some point.

I am reminded of this quote I put up last year, from Carmen Hermosillo:

i created my interior thoughts as a means of production for the corporation that owned the board i was posting to, and that commodity was being sold to other commodity/consumer entities as entertainment. that means that i sold my soul like a tennis shoe and i derived no profit from the sale of my soul.
