What do you consider pornography? bcondray - 18/04/2004 03:36:05 PM

Okay..over on the OF MB I posted a review of a novel that I very much liked but from the comments certain (and you know who you are. )people have made it seems I startled them by my choice in fiction. I did not and do not consider the book pornographic.

To me pornography is something far different than what that book contains. I cannot define it well..it's almost like that statement made years ago when the Commisssion on Porn(my name for it) was formed and one of the members said something to the effect of..."I can't tell you what pornography is but I know it when I see it." I am very offended by much that is called porn...but I am not offended by(my standard here) artistic nudity.

I am a bit of a prude most of the time..

Any comments?

If the only value is sexual, it's porn. So, why does porn offend you? *NM* - 18/04/2004 06:14:19 PM 8 Views
