Lady Porn Poll
What is lady porn? That’s subjective. Male porn is easy to identify--I won’t go into it. I was raised with a healthy fear of saying certain wenis-y type words. But Lady Porn is more difficult to pin. Sometimes, it’s a man on a horse. Other times, it’s a husband made of brownies.
Today we pit two candidates from different demographics (stages of being clothed) against each other to determine Who Is the Most Best in Terms of Lady Porn (I’m working on the name).
(Disclaimer: Not all ladies love men, and not all who love men are ladies. This is not intended to be heteronormative or exclusionary. The great thing about Lady Porn is that everyone can participate. Get gay grandma in on this!)
Vote for your favorite in the comments and please explain why you’ve chosen that particular person with a brain we’re not objectifying.
