"The Paradox of Pornography and the Threat to Intimacy"

Fri, October 26, 2007 | PAR 201

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

In the past two decades, pornography has become increasingly normalized and mainstream in U.S. culture, while at the same time the content of the material has become more and more overtly cruel and degrading to women. How do we explain this apparent paradox? In this talk, Jensen will discuss the consequences of an increasingly pornographic culture on our intimate lives, drawing on material from his new book, Getting Off: Pornography and the End of Masculinity, just released from South End Press.
