Hello everyone :) This week I'm super busy, just like Daphne, because of my uni exams..
As you may know I study journalism in the university of Athens and this month is the hardest one. Also tomorrow I have oral exams in french and I'm really nervous because I struggle a lot with the pronunciation.. Meanwhile I'm working on a project that I have to deliver until Monday. The subject of the essay is "Objectification in Pornography" and I've learned things about porn industry that I wish I never did. But overall this research in pornography is not always negative. So I want to share some thing with you that I've learned during my research!
Porn industry helped women to explore their sexuality as encourage them to learn about their bodies and try to please themselves without any fear. I know that in the western culture the feminist movement tried to solve those problems but many communities nowadays are really conservative and create insecurities in women about their body image and their sexuality.Home-made or amateur porn videos create a fuller image on sex as they portray different types of bodies and a great variety of sexual actions in general. Porn also is in a way a freedom of expression and supports the idea that every person has the right to manage his body as he wish.My essay was essentially based on the third wave of feminism.In this term is described the new feminist theories about equality, sex and pornography.The most important part of this theory(for my essay) is that women should be treated equally, so they have the right to shoot porn films without the consideration that they are "used".I'm not saying that pornography doesn't have any flaws.Sometimes porn gives the wrong image about sex or about human relationships and also can be really addictive.But the main point is pornography can't be blamed for everything bad in society just because reflects society.So the last thing I want so say is try not to be judgmental, be open-minded, support equality and freedom of expression.Remember that if we didn't have freedom I wouldn't be able to do this post and could never disagree with an opinion that doesn't exist.Don't demonise human nature, accept it and let it free!
