It hadn’t occurred to me, but even the name is smug, superior, self-satisfied. And wrong.
It should be “make sex, not porn,” to be accurate, as much of the sex depicted is not “making love” – it’s between friends, or solo, or whatever.
But even then, why start by saying, in your name, “what we do is BETTER than porn”?
Is there something wrong with porn?
Honestly, what’s on MLNP is porn, it’s just a specific genre. Why heap disapproval on an already maligned genre, just to draw a distinction that is stylistic rather than substantive?
Maggie McNeill’s writing on the ways many women are at such pains to put distance between themselves and whores comes to my mind.
MLNP is porn, no matter what they say on the web site.
