This is an interesting article about alleged photos of a male stripper
at a Catholic University Womens Lacrosse Freshman party. I think this due to the "pornification" of our culture. When strippers become "exotic dancers" and women take pole dancing "exercise" classes, we are actively encouraging men and women to continue to objectify each other.
Here is an interesting
article from January about the effects of "porno chic". I've always been conflicted about pornography. When I was younger I didn't really see anything wrong with it (back in the late 70's early 80's). But that seemed to be when there was less of it and it seemed somehow more innocent. Now it seems ubiquitious. I saw a statistic that over 1,000 illegal pornographic movies are made each month in Japan alone (approximately 35 a day). I'm somewhat shocked that there are that many people looking at pornography.
As I've gotten older I see pornography not as something "innocent" that consenting adults engage in and view, but something much more insidious. I see it as something that takes advantage of women through the lie of "empowerment".
