Letter To Pornography Industry Analysis
I am writing to object to the word daddy used in the bedroom, which has been spoken by women speaking to their lovers during intercourse because of films you have made public.

The writer objected to the word cremains; similarly, I objected to the word daddy. I chose to use a similar tone and create a stern voice, without making it entirely offensive. I want my point to come across and I want my voice to be heard.
