We Are All Feminists Now?

Porn Again!?

Sexual liberation and empowerment? or exploitation?

Cindy Gallop talks about her new app BangWithFriends  which was launched last month, making it possible to tell if someone on Facebook might want to be more than just friends. She also plans to add gaming elements to the site to encourage users to expand their sexual horizons. You will also be able to create playlists of your favourite videos for different occasions. Participants will be able to build a sexual profile on the site that can be used to say ‘this is who I am sexually’. Gallop is working out more ways to ensure her site’s amateur sex videos will be publicly seen by lots of people.

Filmmaker Jesse Rosten has created a great satire on the common beauty ad with funny one-liners like: “Just one application of Fotoshop can give you results so dramatic they’re almost unrealistic” and “Brighten eyes, whiten teeth, even adjust your race!” – check it out on Vimeo
