PORN a form of art or exploitation

womans rights

After reading these articles of the pro porn view and anti porn view I can only agree with the liberal view of woman having the right to choose what they feel is right for them and their bodies. Unless its harmful or dangerous to a woman or anyone else then I believe both men and woman can chose to view or participate in the porn industry without harsh judgments. One of the articles had a quote that said “a woman’s body, a woman’s right” this stood out to me I do agree with this quote and some points of the liberal view. However the Anti-porn feminist view had many great points as well. One that stood out to me was that woman are exploited far more than men in the porn industry. Were men are viewed as cool and extreme woman are viewed as low class and degrading.
Does anyone agree that, woman are viewed as a piece of meat and not as a work of art in the porn industry?
The liberal feminist view had great points as far as the movement and struggles they had to endure through the 1960’s for equal rights and reform. Woman took this opportunity to reform the porn industry as well and gave woman equal rights and pay just like men. They were now viewed a little different with in the industry not just as an exploited worker with no rights but as equal worker expressing themselves as so called art. In an industry were men are viewed as king’s woman rose to be equal or even greater within the porn industry.
Does anyone agree that woman have come a long way within the porn industry?

  1. There are different genres, if you will, of adult film and we have all seen B-rated movies and those movies that only hire the best looking woman. In some films, the women are treated pretty badly, now I don’t know if this is part of the acting or de facto. In others, women are parade as though their vagina is made of gold (in some cases they really are) so I can’t really say it’s truly an art or a piece of meat. Many years have passed since 1960 and women have made great strides with regards to income and respect, while creating a very large fan base. For example, Jenna Jameson has built an empire from revenue generated from the porn industry. Not all make it big, but they all have the same opportunity.
