Liz on Alternet: A little smut might be good for ya

     Pornography is a funny thing. Especially when you get titles like 'Bitanic."
     Adult films are actually like any other medium to me...I like some genres and styles and don't like others, but I have never been bothered by it in the way some people are, possibly because I grew up in the 70's when Deep Throat was something people went to see on dates, but more likely because I just have an innate live-and-let-live attitude towards sexuality, not to mention a natural nosiness about what other people are up to.
      So when Alternet asked me to do a piece on the upsides (no pun, etcetera) of porn I was happy to check out some studies that contradict the 20th century criticisms of the medium as well as to get to talk to three brilliant women, JamYe WaXman, Dr. Catherine Salmon and Candida Royalle  in this piece about about Why Porn Can Be Good For You.
       Thank you, ladies and thank you Alternet! Now I'm going to cue up "Dawson's Crack"....  ;)
