Fashion or Porn?

August 28, 2014 1 min read

There’s an actual online game called fashion or porn, where it shows you a snippet of an image and you have to guess if it’s from a fashion advertisement or from a porno. It’s deceptively difficult, especially thanks to American Apparel ads.

This thought that fashion and porn are so closely interchangeable is a little bit saddening, but as we all know, sex sells. In both cases though, according to Erika Lust on the Huffington Post, BAD sex doesn’t sell. The porn industry is traditionally fairly chauvinistic, an issue that I could probably talk about for much longer, but for all of your sakes we’ll just accept porn’s male-centricity as fact and leave it at that. So, porn is generally adverse to women because it’s “made for men” – so where does that leave fashion? How is it that an industry primarily aimed at females is so anti-feminist?

It seems like in the past few years the fashion industry has upped the anti when it comes to racy advertising, but without the financial return. New and explicit images were well received when it was, well, new – but the years of fashion ads featuring male-defined versions of female sexuality is overdone and old. Apparently the same kind of decline is happening in the porn industry as well. Hopefully we can get some creative and innovative advertising soon, and stop with the whole domination of women imagery – it’s not even the fact that it’s offensive anymore, it’s just boring. Who knows? Maybe the porn business will make a change first, and end up saving the fashion industry.
