It’s Ladyporn Day!

Last September, blogger Rabbit Write decided to try an experiment. She challenged women to not wear make-up for a week and to write, talk, and blog about their experiences. In a world in which women are constantly judged for their attractiveness, going out without make-up was a big thing, for some of them, and the conversations she started were amazing. Rabbit has decided to do something similar for porn.

Tomorrow, February 22, is Ladyporn Day. Writers, educators, and bloggers all over the place will be talking about their experiences of porn. But it’s more than the usual “porn is bad/porn is good” arguments we’ve been hearing for so long.

The participants are invited to use a wide definition of porn: erotica, romance novels, tumblr feeds, and yes, movies. They’re also being asked to reflect upon their own relationships to porn, the good and the bad. Part of the idea is to create a wider picture of what porn can mean. And the range of topics is wide open: folks can write about anything, including feminist theory, porn fashion inspiration, personal stories, body-image and porn, interviews and more!

There will be quite a few Ladyporn Day posts here on the Good Vibrations Magazine throughout the day. You can also follow the conversation on twitter, using the hashtag #ladypornday. And Rabbit will have links to lots of the posts on her website.

This should be a really great event. Check it out or join in!
