I think you raise good points about the cultural context, Based on personal experience growing up, I don't think there is necessarily porn all over in the global North but there is certainly a connection between commercialism/consumerism and sexuality, like how it's used in marketing contexts, if that's maybe what you're alluding to? I do think there is also diversity in porn even if the mainstream variety is much more prevalent; I have never seen porn that could be described as "humiliating" myself but it obviously has a market. I'm definitely intrigued by the "sprinkling of humiliation... coded into visuals" you saw and internalized while watching Indian movies growing up-- could you share a few examples. :)

I love your positive, vivid description there-- thanks so much for sharing this upbeat take on it!
