Naomi Wolf on Porn and Sex–Four Years Later, Debate Rages

36cover031013_150.jpg

Feministing is all a-blaze over a New York magazine story by Naomi Wolf about the allegedly insidious effects of porn on sex lives of real people.

Vanessa and the commentors are taking Wolf to task for her poorly researched piece. (0ne commenter, aka Stripper, notes a “factual error” in the first sentence.)

Matthew Yglesias, blogging at The Atlantic, jumps manfully into the fray and takes 117 comments with him.

Julian Sanchez, at Notes from the Lounge, likes this quote from Wolf:

In my gym, the 40-year-old women have adult pubic hair; the twentysomethings have all been trimmed and styled.

and attributes this styling gap to penetration vs. oral.

And at each site, someone points out that the piece was a story in October 2003. Why let a few years stand in the way of a good rant?

(Note to Stripper–did you read past the first sentence?)
