'Women need to watch more porn'

Los Angeles - Elizabeth Olsen thinks women need to watch more porn.

The actress has ruled out taking on the lead role of Anastasia Steele, a young woman who is introduced to the world of bondage and kinky sex by manipulative billionaire Christian Grey, in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, and thinks its impact on society means people need to watch more porn.

She told Bullettmedia.com: "It's had a huge impact on society. Apparently rope sales have skyrocketed because women who've read the book are really getting into bondage, which is kind of great.

"It's such a taboo for women to actually discuss sexuality without the help of Cosmopolitan.

"All of a sudden, this book has become a sensation because the women reading it haven't had access to this kind of thing before.

I was talking to a guy who was making a joke about it, saying, 'Clearly, these women just need to watch porn'. In a way, he's right."

REVIEW: Fifty Shades of Grey

While Elizabeth doesn't want the role, Emma Roberts recently revealed she would jump at the chance to star in the movie.

She said: "Everyone says read Fifty Shades of Grey. I don't really understand. But everyone on the plane was reading it, and I was like, 'I should probably just get it.'

"I haven't read it, I don't even understand, but yeah, it sounds awesome. Anything racy, hot. Sure, let's get hot."

    That's great and while we're at it we can sell more women into the sex slave trade. What a winning statement. Grow a brain cell.

      @ Alan My point is that the porn industry really is a terrible industry with so many women exploited in the sex slave trade and human trafficking scourges. For a public figure like Elizabeth Olsen to be condoning the porn industry really is irresponsible. Porn might seem harmless to the watcher but what about the harm it's caused to many of the women involved in the porn industry?

      While you're on point to a certain degree there are women who've made more money from porn than some PhD graduates would ever dream of and not only that; they were happy with their choice.

      @veritas. There are well off prostitutes as well. Apparently a wealthy porn star is now better than your average Joe working at a bank? Which should we advocate to our kids? And no, no sane porn star will ever admit they are being abused or manipulated, their livelihood depends on it. However many that have left the industry are very vocal about how they were mistreated. Watch a documentary called 'Hardcore', it really puts everything in perspective.

      There's millions of people these days that make sex videos with their parners and post it online. That's actually the best porn to watch, and it's got nothing to do with the so called porn industry. So to generalise like that and associate porn with the sex slave trade is stupid

      nonsense.

    Porn destroys real love. No-one - not men or women - can ever live up to it. Why do we follow the opinions of film stars who have such messed up lives and kids?

      Thank you, finally someone who does not get caught up in this fake LaLaLand!

    Shame lovell.trevor, what is your point - instead of a brain cell, why don't you get a life !!! What an idiotic statement - wild sex is great - you should maybe try it some time - or do you lack in that department !!

      @alan: You do realise that the majority of porn 'actresses' fake it right? There really isn't much to learn from porn other than the misconception that woman love being spat on, choked, have multiple partners, penetrated in every possible orifice, slapped... the list goes on. Sorry, but if you think you're learning anything from Porn, you'll actually be pretty useless in bed. Seems the only 'wild sex' you're getting is using your left hand instead of your right.
