Pornography has been so thickly glossed over with the patina of chic these days in the name of verbal freedom and sophisication… Part of the problem is that those who traditionally have been the most vigorous opponents of porn are often those same people who shudder at the explicit mention of any sexual subject… There can be no equality in porn, no female equivalent, no turning of the tables in the name of bawdy fun. Pornography, like rape, is a male invention, desgined to dehumanize women… Pornography is the undiluted essence of anti-female propoganda.
Legend has it that every new technology is first used for something related to sex or Pornography. That seems to be the way of humankind.tim berners-lee
The difference between Pornography and erotica is lighting.
Pornography is used in rape - to plan it, to execute it, to choreograph it, to engender the excitement to commit the act.Andrea Dworkin
Pornography reveals that male pleasure is inextricably tied to victimizing, hurting, exploiting; that sexual fun and sexual passion in the privacy of the male imagination are inseparable from the brutality of male history. The private world of sexual dominance that men demand as their right and their freedom is the mirror image of the public world of sadism and atrocity that men consistently and self-righteously deplore. It is in the male experience of pleasure that one finds the meaning of male history.Andrea Dworkin
Pornography and violence are by-products of societies in which private identity has been...destroyed by sudden environmental change.Marshall McLuhan
Pornography and obscenity...work by specialism and fragmentation. They deal with a figure without a ground -- situations in which the human factor is suppressed in favor of sensations and kicks.Marshall McLuhan
Pornography is literature designed to be read with one hand.
Pornography is the theory, and rape is the practice.
Pornography. That which excites, whether from approval or disapproval.
Pornography is about dominance and often pain. Erotica is about mutuality and always pleasure.
'As far as I know, Pornography is the only working medicine against seasickness.'piet de jong
There's a subterranean impetus towards Pornography so powerful that half the business world is juiced by the sort of half sex that one finds in advertisements.norman mailer
Life isn’t divided into genres. It’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of Pornography if you're lucky.alan moore
Anti-feminism is also operating whenever any political group is ready to sacrifice one group of women, one faction, some women, some kinds of women, to any element of sex-class oppression: to Pornography, to rape, to battery, to economic exploitation, to reproductive exploitation, to prostitution. There are women all along the male-defined political spectrum, including both extreme ends of it, ready to sacrifice some women, usually not themselves, to the brothels or the farms. The sacrifice is profoundly anti-feminist; it is also profoundly immoral...Andrea Dworkin
...Pornography is the orchestrated destruction of women's bodies and souls; rape, battery, incest, and prostitution animate it; dehumanization and sadism characterize it; it is war on women, serial assaults on dignity, identity, and human worth; it is tyranny. Each woman who has survived knows from the experience of her own life that Pornography is captivity – the woman trapped in the picture used on the woman trapped wherever he's got her.Andrea Dworkin
[I]n the male sexual lexicon, which is the vocabulary of power, erotica is simply high-class Pornography: better produced, better conceived, better executed, better packaged, designed for a better class of consumer. As with the call girl and the streetwalker, one is turned out better but both are produced by the same system of sexual values and both perform the same sexual service.Andrea Dworkin
Women have conceptualized less in history not because men have kept them from doing so but because women do not need to conceptualize in order to exist. […] Fetishism, for instance, a practice which like most of the sex perversions is confined to men, is clearly a conceptualizing or symbol-making activity. Man’s vastly greater commercial patronage of Pornography is analogous.camille paglia
Despite hundreds of studies, cause-and-effect relationship between Pornography and violence has never been satisfactorily proved. ?camille paglia
Far from poisoning the mind, Pornography shows the deepest truth about sexuality, stripped of romantic veneer.camille paglia
Feminists are often asked whether Pornography causes rape. The fact is that rape and prostitution caused and continue to cause Pornography. Politically, culturally, socially, sexually, and economically, rape and prostitution generated Pornography; and Pornography depends for its continued existence on the rape and prostitution of women.
Men characterize Pornography as something mental because their minds, their thoughts, their dreams, their fantasies, are more real to them than women's bodies or lives; in fact, men have used their social power to characterize a $10-billion-a-year trade in women as fantasy.Andrea Dworkin
What's the difference between art and Pornography... a government grant!
The oppressive measures on Pornography by the Korean government are totally insane... It is actually seen that it oppresses masculinity and that it distorts the essentials. It is all done by the Ministry of Gender Equality and women’s organizations led by Korean feminists.
When Dudeness is forgotten, League bylaws and rules arise; Then political advocacy and Pornography are joined, And standards fall regrettably.
The internet is like a big circus tent full of scary, boring creatures and Pornography.
Although Wales himself had made his personal fortune as a futures trader in Chicago in the 1990s, he wasn't the one funding Nupedia. This was done through one of Wales's less altruistic ventures, a Web portal called Bomis.com that featured, among other items, soft-core Pornography.
