For example, Hooters is a huge part of Porn Chic because waitresses barely wear anything while on the job, and many customers just go to restaurants to see the women’s bodies. Dr. Lynch even mentioned how she attending a birthday party for a five year old girl that was held at Hooters.

For example, trying to adhere to this society could cause mental heath issues and eating disorders later in life. Other examples are magazines and sports ads where women are posed to show off their bodies while men are posed in masculine positions actually partaking in physical activities. One thing I will take away from this presentation was the constraints of apparel. I never realized how the way clothing is designed puts people in a figurative box. Most clothes are made for either…

    comparing themselves to these images (Brown 2015, p, 89). This is most apparent as a result of the adult industry saturating society with the influx of readily available pornographic material made extremely convenient because of the internet. Nevertheless, the question remains as to whether people prefer the pleasantness of doctored images or would rather revert to the antiquated concept of beauty.

Girls are being taught to cover up their bodies to protect themselves, while boys are being taught that sexual violence is a byproduct of natural instincts.

Should we then regulate all of pornography due to violence that occurs during or after production? It is not true that all pornography is shown as violent nor do we know what occurs behind the scenes. For those stars who are willing to show the pleasurable desires, in fact, have the liberty…

    I believe that David Pellegrini’s directorial concept for Pornography was to showcase how closely our everyday lives are intermingle with our nation and how, in these case, a moment of tragedy can bring us together and open our eyes about our environment. Due to the given circumstances of the play there isn’t much room to play around and image the plot in a different time period, but, Pellegrini used all of the open-ended aspects of the play to his advantage and gave them his unique touch to…
