Sex is pretty basic, a key part of a personality. To say emphasizing it turns the person into an object, though, just isn't accurate. There are guys ask their favorite porn stars for their autographs. That just doesn't happen if the porn star has become an object to guys.

There are other negative effects that are worth noting, like the tendency for guys to misinterpret signals in that situation, and getting defensive about backing down. (No, her having sex with some guys doesn't imply she'll have sex with you.) There are apparently are some people, male and female, who see women who dress in suggestive manner, or go nude, as having zero social status. The experiment finding this appears to indicate the response is almost a reflex, and there's no follow up as to what it means for behavior, and whether it can be unlearned.

There's no word as to whether males of this ilk are guys who frequent porn or guys who avoid it, or whether women with this tendency become anti-sex-fems or not.
