puro porno

lately, saturday has been the only day of my week that i really look forward to since this is the only time i am busy. i have two classes during saturday, three hours each. the first one is an undergraduate class, which i need to take as an introductory for my degree. then the next one is a film graduate class about pornography. yes, pornography. and obviously, among the two, its the later one that i really look forward to during saturdays.

whenever friends hear about this class, their immediate reaction is always a surprise then followed by a question, "whats in pornography to study?"

at first, i really don't know what to answer. and i admit that when i first enlisted myself in this class, i was so so clueless. besides, its pornography. what does it has to do with me, right? (panaive look tapos finger in my lips)

until one meeting, during a discussion, someone raised the same question. a good number of arguements flew in the air. and you can sense that most answers have the inclination of feminism in them. and although, feminism and gender have always been my part of the pie, i decided to remain silent and listen to what they have to say. until someone finally got my atention.

he was from the same college that i belong, we were the only non film majors in the class. he said that, the other day he watched this korean guy's film, ninja assasin and find it way beyond the words violent and gore. then he realized, how come people can actually accept such violent and gore films that only promotes violence, killing and abuse but cannot tolerate pornography that depicts mere expression of human desire?

then the films, in the realm of the senses,

deep throat

and devil in miss jones

were played.

that night, i burned two boxes of porn cds.

realm of the senses is a bid dated, but nonetheless a little too graphic in terms of violent scenece (read: bloody birdie)

doors and jones are fun, a historical trip down the roots of the "mainstream" american porn industry.

"that night, i burned two boxes of porn cds."

Burned as in to a CD, or burned as in flames?

ang saya! pwede kita maging classmate? :)

Johnny Cursive said...

i watch the cd, burn it in my head and then get rid of the evidence by giving it away =P

I think violence and "pornography" bank on our penchant for the unfamiliar. sUnfortunately, "unfamiliar" is different for everybody.

hugh said...

@cloud, ako rin pahiram! lol!

Chyng said...

I bet sa 2 boxes ng porn cd's na yun, you SAVED the best ones! haha

Right?

What society deems inappropriate are usually the very things that divulge our animal roots. Society, and civilizations, are products of man's desire to subjugate the raw and unbridled, as sometimes unthinking, part of our genotype.

Yet, the more we relegate these sort of genres to non-mainstream status, the more it piques our imagination.

Good thing I got into a film organization back in college, we were actually made to watch porn and violence flicks to primarily desensitize us. Thus, affording better clarity and comprehension of the merits (or demerits) of the work we were trying to review.

Had I known this subject was offered, I would've enlisted.

My all-time favorite for gore would have to be Hostel though. It is cult-classic in the making.

haha. binabawi ko na, ayaw ko na mag sit in sa class mo. ayaw ko matrauma tulad ng nangyari sayo last na nagkita tayo.

pero hindi ba nakakawala ng sakit ng ipin ang porn class mo kasi nababaling ang atensyon mo? haha.

ay nako. me utang pako sayo. libre ko ang inom kasi naburaot ko kayo nung last na nagkita tao. haha.

- Kiko na nagbabalik sa dating ningning

Dammit, STOP wasting good porn! If you don't want yours anymore I will gladly take them off your sticky hands.

hmmm interesado rin ako sa porn. mahirap rin kayang magpalibog ng tao hehehe. naisip ko nga, comparative study ng straight porn at gay porn hehehe.

Saw In the Realm again recently. It was exhausting. Partly because my friends and I kept on joking about, well, the absence of sex, and partly because the girl was a freakin energizer bunny.

I prefer porn stored in one's hard drive rather than in CDs/DVDs. It's a little less messier for me that way. But porn is still porn, and two boxes worth of it is a great, great loss.
