Review of Make Love Not Porn

Monday, November 26th, 2012

Make Love Not Porn is Cindy Gallops newest venture. This is an amateur web cam/video based  pay site  with a spin.

From the press release 

MakeLoveNotPorn.tv is of the people, by the people, and for the people who believe that the sex we have in our everyday life is the hottest sex there is.

We are not porn – porn is performance (often an exceedingly delicious performance, but a performance nonetheless).We are not ‘amateur’ – a label that implies that the only people doing it right are the professionals and the rest of us are bumbling idiots. (Honey, please.)  

Instead of paying per min.(ppv) you rent the movie of your choice for $5, and it is good for unlimited viewings three weeks.

This is great numerous reason. One is that ppv is a rip off,  (dont even get me started on how many times I have had to call AEBN Customer service) and it gives you time to watch the clip numerous times and really involve yourself in the action.

  Overall  Review  ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Ethical positioning of all Bodies– Searching through the closed beta, I found that most of the performers were thin, white semi attractive people. This site is user submitted so this could be for a few different reasons, normative beauty standards, objectification of  minorities and so on.  However  they did earn points for the “stories” behind the videos. Each video comes with a back story this is the performers own write-up of the scene.  This gives performers a voice and a background. This is important for numerous reasons. One is to dismantle the idea of who does “sex work”, and how they are.

Ethical treatment of  performers  MLNP payment options are clearly stated, both for the buyer and seller. It is $5 to submit your video, and then you receive 50% of your rentals.   Again extra points for clarity and upfrontness of how much performers get paid/profit share.

Use of language- This is important to MLNP/ Cindy Gallop.  There is no insulting misogynist language, racist or gender binary language used to promote videos.  Words like girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/wife/lover  are used rather than “horny bitches get it”. This is a refreshing change of pace.

Other Info

The site is in a closed beta- and you have to be invited.  I submitted my email and received an invite with in 24 hours. As some one who spends her free time pursuing porn, I would highly recommend this site if you like real bodies, and a personality behind your porn.  The site is chock full of  pop culture references. It makes the viewer feel comfortable watching, with out feeing the usual disconnect.

Series Intro

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

This is the first in a series of articles/blog posts dealing with the evolving nature of camming, commercialism, porn, profit, dignity worth and commodification of bodies.

For the sake of transparency, let me introduce myself and my standpoint/basis.   I am a college educated, white appearing , feminist  , nerd, liberal. body positive, cam girl and sex toy reviewer.  Some of these may been out of place with others, but lets face it people are complicated.  I wanted to allow my readers to understand my biases before continuing.

Some of the BIG questions we will cover are
1) What is the correlation between your internal worth vs employment worth in a capitalist system?    How does camming affect this?
2)  How does this commodification of women’s bodies differ to straight mens bodies?
3) Does cam work change that or just reinforce roles
4) How has the evolution of camming changed, and how does it affect performances
5) Is camming porn or performance

If you have thoughts on these questions, I would love to  hear them!

Tenga in Tandem

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

I have been crazy excited to write this review ever since its inception.  I am always looking for ways to make my blog “stand out”. I do this by approach (educational) and humor. However I have also decided to review different toys and sexual accoutrements. I am also hoping to have a extra special male Guest Blogger!

In Sex Toy reviews, there is a large emphasis on female toys.  This is due to the fact  majority of toys are for women. This becomes a quagmire and a Ouroboros of sex toy vs sex toy review. So here I am- Putting that snake on a diet!

My goal is to have at least   25% male (both sex and gender representation)  sex toy representation by the end of the year.   This lack of diversity has bothered me since I began doing reviews.  This is hurtful to sexuality and sex education.  because only one side gets to be heard/read/blogged about. While I like the  strength of the female sexual  voice,  non cis gender and male voices are not represented.

The Tenga Deep Throat Cup is a  masturbation sleeves similar to its flashier cousin Frankie the FleshLight.  In appearance it looks like the dreaded Red Solo Cup. If you are not a country music fan, or just out of college it should not bother you.  The use of the toy was reported to me as “easy”.  It also appeared to be “plug and play”.   One would unscrew it, and thrust into it as needed.  There is a hole on the top for your finger to control the suction. Placing your finger on the small hole created a vacuum tightness, where as removing the finger allowed air to escape. This was great for mimicking the contraction of vaginal muscles.

The overall sensation was reported as a 4/5.  The lubrication was a water based lube with little smell and no stickiness. It was a tad over  lubricated for the a first time, but after play the ratio evened out. There is also a ring of pressure near the top.  This is special of the “Deep Throat” cup. This ring is meant to feel like the throat.  As reported it did not feel like a throat, but felt great.  I would imagine it felt as “realistic” as a dildo feels to a vagina.  This toy is  large, and can fit up to an 11inch penis. The Cup also was easy to use in partner play.   It stayed on the penis, but was also easy to remove, It was easy to use as a woman, and aided in foreplay.  This is a great toy for people  who want to teach their partner how to jack them off. One of the concerns I had was the lube.  As a note it is propylene glycol based, and some are allergic to it.

Since it is a masturbation sleeve the comparison to the FleshLight is unavoidable.  A Pro over the Fleshlight is cost.  Ranging from $10-15  the Tenga Deep Throat Cup is much more affordable than the  $60-70 Fleshlight. It is also smaller and a bit less kitschy.  A con is that it does not last as long. The Tenga has about 10-15 uses to it. The Fleshlight has infinite uses.  It is not as ribbed as the Fleshlight. This being a pro/con is up to personal choice.
I liked the idea of being a sexy reporter with my partner, and hope to do it again!
