Porn or Not Porn.. That is the Question?

What constitutes pornography? Why are there so many different views on this subject matter? Throughout the lecture, there was talk about the history of pornography and how it is or should be defined. I think that this is a very important part of the class. These definitions are what we are going to base all the rest of out thoughts on. If we were working in a marketing agency, you would need to know this for what is appropriate to place in your ads, the same as what is correct to place in schools if you were an educator. This is not as easy as picking up a dictionary and looking up the meaning, you have to know both your cultural and societal expectations of pornography. Everyone has a different view of what is porn, and this is based on many different things. Just talking to my friends who are of the same age and for the most part the same economic status, we still have different views based on religion and the different places that we grew up. From the lecture I think that the three question of where, to whom and the context (if any) should each of these things be thought of first before showing items that could be seen as sexual in any matter. The media now a day is more relaxed about certain types of nudity and showing things that are sexual in nature. I think this is because our culture is becoming more accepting to sexual experiences and talking about it publicly especially after the Bill Clinton incident in the White House. I think that having to explain what happened and then all the media talking about it changed how we look at sex.

I agree. It is really hard to expain what porn is. I am 27 and married and I have older friends and younger friends, some married and some not. Everyone comes form different places and backgrounds and is it really tough to come to one common ground on such a subject. I’m still kind of not comfortable with this blog thing so I thought I send out a reply.
