Women’s Porn Mag Cockblocked in UK

This is news from last year but Filament, a women’s erotica magazine, was cockblocked by their printer for pictures of erect penises in their second issue. Apparently their first issue, released last year, had three sets of pics of hot lads without dropping their pants. That in itself surprises me.


On hearing the reader demand for hard cocks, the Filament team included some fine boneage in their second issue only to have their printer refuse, “citing potential objections from ‘the women’s/religious sectors.'”

Uhhh…what? Can you imagine a printer refusing to publish one of the thousands of porn mags for men because “men’s/religious sectors” might object?

Kristina Lloyd and Mathilde Madden make some good points in the Guardian article about the whole debacle, including this gem:

While some contend the lack of female-oriented erotica reflects a lack of demand, claiming the free market would prevail if women wanted such material, Filament’s experience of cockblocking proves otherwise. Perhaps what’s most insidious in this saga is that the market’s refusal to admit Filament reinforces an idea of female sexuality which justifies that very refusal. The absence of visual erotica for women on shelves crammed with magazines where women are products for male consumers, reduces female desire to the less-interested counterpart of male desire. The deficit positions women as the providers of sex for perpetually horny dudes. And so, runs the self-fulfilling logic, of course women don’t want magazines targeting their desire. Women don’t have desire, see? They merely receive it.

You might be wondering why I’m blogging about another porn magazine for women on the PoolBoy Magazine blog. Isn’t that our competition, you may be wondering? Honestly, I’m just psyched to see there are other women producing porn mags. That’s just more variety for ladies. It gets so old having to look at the same porn, and men don’t seem to have this problem because there are tons of different mags and movies for them to look at. Women have less than a handful. Plus, how could you not love a magazine whose slogan is “the thinking woman’s crumpet?”

Luckily the British magazine is now on it’s 5th issue, proving that ladies all over the world love man meat.
