I try to convince myself that these women choose to do this, and maybe (probably) they do, but why do the women have to be treated so raunchy. Most of the time I'm horrified by what I see on the internet (imgfave, mostly).
I don't think you need to be ashamed. Though I'm not that into in myself, I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with watching *. The problem comes in that we do vote with our dollar, so by patronizing companies that produce * that is degrading or violent towards women we are saying, yes, this is ok! However, unforunately, this is what's available mainstream, so it's certainly hard to avoid it (especially if you're looking for something free).
But like xyz said, there is women friendly * out there, so maybe try looking for that!
