why is porn so tacky? You needed to ask?

this is one of those self-referential, I'm point at another Weblog things, but this is an interesting piece, not least because I tend not to agree with Eric Raymond on a lot of things (like calling Bankise a 'young Scottish writer' for a start). But it's always nice to hear someone saying tacky porn is tacky because it makes the women in it unreal fetish objects rather than real people and I find the idea of his 'controlled experiment' kind of amusing.
