Press coverage

Full press release

Fed up with the constant feminist-antifeminist debate, especially when it comes to pornography, Giada Garofalo has - at the 'tender' age of 37 - started to watch some porn to see what all the fuss is about.

The problem is, it's hard for Giada to judge porn because she's really into serial killers... like Jeffrey Dahmer who used to eat his victims to keep them always with him, to "love" them happily (just him, the victims not so much) ever after... a bit like a fairy tale. In fact, it's exactly like a fairy tale - did you know that in the original stories, Sleeping Beauty is raped by the king while in Snow White the prince is a necrophiliac and the queen is a cannibal?!

Porn doesn't sound so bad now, huh?

NOT suitable for families.
