Ariel Levy has a pretty interesting take on the whole porn phenomenon in her book "Female Chauvenist Pigs", which I recommend to anyone who is mystified as to how things like strip classes and porn actresses have made it into the mainstream without seeming to increase a) the amount of pleasure the average woman gets from the average man (because these things tend to cater to men's desires, not necessarily women's so no one has really learned anything more than some new acting skills by partaking of either) or b) the general freedom of women to express themselves sexually (Only tarted up girls with stilettos and push-up bras are "sexy", etc.)
