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

high brow porn

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.”
