Porn Films Raise False Hopes, Desires

A first-year opinion columnist who is engaged in a long-distance relationship discusses the role of pornography in negotiating feelings of desire. While he somewhat wryly claims that porn films hold some degree of personal appeal for him, he asserts that they promote negative sexual images of women and are frustrating to young men engaged in long-distance relationships. He also claims that romance novels, unlike porn, mediate and "hide" depictions of sex through plot and words.
