Technology is a leading factor in pornography. Between the lecture and reading, there are many different ideas that develop along with the technology at the time. The reading talks about the ways in which the pornographic environment of different time periods changes and develops with the technology at the time. The VCR seems to be a major influence on the business aspect of pornography. This is because of the increasing video sales. That opened up the viewing of these videos to private places because of the societies shame that watching porn subjects people to. The porn business has a large impact on sale of videos and equipment. The money made in this business is taboo and in many companies, it is untold as to how revenue from these videos was made. Why is cooperate America so embarrassed or ashamed of the growth of this business? We are so embarrassed by it that professional cannot even declare it for monetary purposes. Society keeps the talk about this business under very low key, in the lecture, there is also talk about the shame that society place on porn and those who buy and sell it. The different ways that different cultures express sexual erotica art and designs over time is also talked about in the lecture. People are sexual beings, as seen this is a long developed human characteristic. Society is suppressing these human thoughts because it says it is wrong to desire or like images of pornography. It gives porno a bad name. Are the ideas that society is pressing on every one of us healthy? Alternatively, are they causing more harm then the pornography itself causes. It does not matter the culture because in the lecture the many was ashamed to buy the book and wanted to burn it, same as we are told not to look at pornography that is not accepted or called art. In the lecture there is talk about pornography and the statue of the over weight woman that comes from the hunting and gathering tribe in Africa. She is very fat unlike the characteristics of women in that area. Do you think that she is the fantasy of the men in that culture, much like now days when the women are bigger and men want the thin models like our pornography? Is this sculpture just something the men have created but cannot really have in life? There are both positives and negative ideas on pornography all over the world. In the end technology leads to improvements in the ways that these different forms of art can be created and or released to the public… that is an important role for technology.
