NZ Herald – Changing the face of pornFebruary 23, 201012 CommentsWoohoo! I am famous in NZ media! (Sorry, I mean – here’s Sunday’s piece on Suraya and Filament, in which I am quoted saying not very much at all.) 12 thoughts on “NZ Herald – Changing the face of porn” pleiadeslion February 22, 2010 at 19:31 Quoted as saying “Objectify me, darlings!” 😉 Reply admin February 22, 2010 at 20:16 Yeah, I’m not sure what the journalist gained from me, I think I mainly waffled academically for ten minutes or so. Reply ferrouswheel February 22, 2010 at 21:34 mmm academic waffles. Reply alphamatrix February 22, 2010 at 22:19 Oh yes, “former research scientist” and all 😉 (which is a way better title than “Wellington-based English expat”, ’cause that’s relevant ‘n all…) Reply admin February 22, 2010 at 22:42 I’m glad that phrase made it in, coz part of my waffling to the journo was about the need for more hot electronics geeks just to fight against the social preconception that scientists are all bearded, weird, and just eww. Reply pleiadeslion February 23, 2010 at 00:36 I think it was really important. When I spoke to Alan, as I mentioned on , he was mainly struggling with the problem of his editor not getting ‘how is talking about this not excusing the objectification of women?’ so I think speaking to a model really played an important part in that.

Slightly ditzy, but really, what can one expect from a topless firedancer? Reply admin February 22, 2010 at 22:43 Hey, “former research scientist”! Reply bowdlerizer February 23, 2010 at 00:45 “slightly ditzy, but really, what can one expect from a former research scientist?” Doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, sorry. I’m stciking with topless firedancer.
