The ‘Pornographic’ Internet Is ‘Social Networking Tool’ and Pornography Is Porn, Pornography is Porn

People have been sharing a new porn trope: the pornification of the internet.

“It’s about being able to share your content with others who are online,” said Alexey M. Chekhov, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the author of The Pornography of the Internet: The New Digital Age.

But the new porn metaphor has its critics.

In an interview, a porn writer and porn producer named Nick said he’s “not convinced” it’s a “pornographic” metaphor.

Instead, he said, “it’s a metaphor of social media that is used to describe things that are in fact porn.”
