HISTORY OF PORN: THE CRITICAL CONSIDERATION OF PORN CRITICISM

END OF DAY #2 - COLBY'S STILL TAKING A BREAK AND KARL MARXXX KEEPS BORING YOU WITH HISTORY LESSONS. Deep in the heart of Chelsea, lies a dream project for a History of Sexual Studies researcher or archivist. It's a fully maintained database of porn reviews dating back to 1993. Each year, the paper bound catalogs are attached the previous year's creating a historical homage to porn and a circuitous guide to details of all the porn shoots one could care to read about.
And yes, flipping through it was a little sticky, in more ways than one. I wonder what an academic paper on this might look like-the critical consideration of the history of pro-market criticism of dudes fucking on camera for cash.

  1. I will be attending NYU grad school in the fall and will be writing academically about adult films, both gay and straight. It's not unheard of. :)

  2. Not boring at all. Fascinating, in fact.

  3. I think the sociological connections to pornography are highly interesting. I can imagine an impartial essay or two on it would make an incredibly fascinating read.
