Smartypants Philosopher Intellectual Wants To Make Your Porn More “Highbrow”

Let’s talk about your taste in pornography. Is it highbrow enough? Pinkies up, chaps!

Philosopher and How Proust Can Change Your Life author Alain de Botton is deeply concerned about this issue. So he plans to take one for the team and meet with “leaders in porn and the arts,” according to the UK’s Telegraph newspaper, “to bring about a better kind of pornography.”

I didn’t realize there could be better and worse pornography, so long as it’s all legal, consensual and no one is wearing frosted lipstick. But the esteemed philosopher disagrees. 

De Botton told the Telegraph

Ideally, porn would excite our lust in contexts which also presented other, elevated sides of human nature – in which people were being witty, for instance, or showing kindness, or working hard or being clever – so that our sexual excitement could bleed into, and enhance our respect for these other elements of a good life.

He continued that he wants ”a pornography in which sexual desire would be invited to support, rather than permitted to undermine, our higher values.” 

I’m not stupid, but I have no fucking idea what this guy is talking about.

Pictures of Michael Fassbender’s penis, please. I’ll need a bowl under my chin for the drool.
