Study: The Porn Body Shape is ‘Out’; Soft and Curvy is In

This is old news that has not yet been digested by authors of studies whose purpose is apparently to reaffirm old stereotypes while affirming new ones.

Study: The Porn Body Shape is ‘Out’; Soft and Curvy is In

THE UNIVERSE—Results of a study conducted in, you guessed it, Britain, reveal that young women are no longer interested in emulating the so-called “porn star body shape,” but are now leaning towards a fuller, softer look.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, “[The study] says only one in 200 girls now say they aim to attain the Barbie-like figure of big fake boobs and a tiny waist, with young women condemning the look as ‘tacky and dated’ and describing it as ‘overhyped, oversexed and demeaning.’”

Fact is, the respondents are correct in their opinion that the media-driven Porn Barbie look is outdated and tacky. For years it’s been out of date even in mainstream porn, where you now find a superfluity of body styles on display, from the traditional breast-enhanced blonde to gender-benders to big beautiful women to girls-next-door to pretty-with-small-tits to girls-you-would-never-assume-in-a-million-years-are-porn-stars to mothers-anyone-would-love-to-fuck!  

In other words, the adult entertainment industry has long since evolved to reflect the diversity of body types. It is the people who conduct studies like this who are stuck in the '90s, reaffirming old stereotypes while simultaneously replacing them with new ones.
