Description

What is porn, who is represented, and what is it that draws us back again and again? In February 2018, 73% of women and 98% of men reported watching porn in the past six months, hardly anyone is talking about it, even with the rise of amateur porn focusing on women who've just turned 18 years old. Documentaries like "Hot Girls Wanted" and "After Porn Ends" tell the stories of porn actors during and after their time working in the industry, but just scratch the surface of the inaccuracy of the relationships depicted in modern pornography. This workshop will focus on exposing the inaccuracy of modern pornographic videos on sites such as Porn Hub, how to watch porn and still maintain a healthy relationship with one's partner, healthy versus unhealthy intimacy, Feminist-porn, and ultimately what behavior can be found at the core of revenge porn and erotic humiliation.
