Recently got some slightly panicky responses to the idea that I might actually show pornography in a course entitled “Cyberpornography & Society.” I hadn’t expected any hand wringing until I at least had a working syllabus. Future such questions will be referred to the fact, as Fleshbot (link not safe for work) notes, that C-SPAN recently aired naked breasts.
Of course, this is not a simple matter. As this paper suggests, there is a fine line to be tread. Nonetheless, it seems pretty clear that talking about pornography without actually observing it is an unnecessarily difficult project.
