Porn is the Perfect Holiday Gift
Buying holiday gifts blows. You’ve got to get him something meaningful but useful, something she wants not needs, something unique and worthy of posting filtered images of on Facebook Christmas morning. Finding that perfect holiday gift is like mission stupid and annoying especially with only a few days til D-Day.
I’m here to tell you the solution is easy. Porn. Yes porn. This holiday season buy your special someone some ethical and possibly even feminist porn.
Of course we don’t usually associate porn with the Christmas season (and rightfully so with the whole birth of baby jesus thing). When we think of porn we usually think of that free, low-quality crap that pornhub pumps out. We think of creepy “casting couches,” fake boobs and even faker female orgasms.
And, if you’ve been keeping up with your porn news, you may now think of the most recent HIV outbreak in the industry. Or you may think of the detached look on the faces of girls from Eastern Europe who have been trafficked into the industry. If you really think about porn it is actually pretty damn depressing.
But it doesn’t have to be. There is good porn out there. Porn that is made with the use of condoms, with the safety of the actors in mind and with their comfort being paramount. There are videos where female pleasure is a focal point of the production, where female orgasms in all their complex glory are real and not ridiculous spectacles. There are pornos with real both male and female bodies, where diversity is embraced not exploited. There is pornography where the chemistry between the actors is more important than the camera angle. And yes there is even porn that is gloriously free of the messy money shot.
The only catch is you have to pay for this high-quality orgasmic material.
Paying for porn is something no one in our generation really does. As soon as our homes got that first dial-up connection we were online to download porn at an agonizingly slow rate. As the internet got faster we upgraded to cable and to streaming videos, never thinking at any moment that it should cost us something to consume this sexy material.
But we all know the good things in life aren’t free (unless you’re talking about the RedEye of course 😉 )
The good porn, sometimes called “feminist” porn and sometimes, called “ethical” porn, takes time, money and talent to produce, and therefore it requires some green to get your horny little hands on it.
I know for many this concept of “paying for porn” may be a little foreign so let me give you a few places to start your holiday shopping.
- Nina Hartley has an amazing instruction video line that is not only sexy but educational! You can get everything from some basic vanilla tips for couples to some kinky foot play.

And while we are talking about paying for porn, why should Christmas be the only holiday to get all the sexy time? Think about buying some ethical porn for Valentine’s Day, birthdays, graduations, Yom Kippur, Veteran’s Day. And while we are at it, why does it have to be a gift? Treat yourself to a little ethical porn on a slow Wednesday. Because, the truth is folks, you deserve better than free.
