Readers Get More than Porno Watchers

A female student columnist argues that porn films are geared towards a male audience, since they often depict physically unattractive males and unrealistically sexualized women. She argues that women are emotionally moved by words of love, whereas men are physically aroused by sight. She concludes that romance novels are superior to porn, on the basis that novels engage more deeply with sensitivity, emotions, and feelings of love, whereas porn is purely physical.
