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.”
