Conceptualizing sexuality | Sociology homework help

Using the resources in this week’s module, discuss pornography and the culture of pornography.  Specifically, MacKinnon refers to the “violation” of women.  Frame this within the re-exploration of sexual history in the Chapter 2 reading.   Feel free to talk about examples from your own personal experience or to bring in your own opinions.  Engage with your classmates to foster a detailed and thought-provoking discussion.  Even if you already have two posts, you can always reply more!

Some things to consider while you discuss:

  • When women sell their sexuality is it empowerment or objectification?  When is it either, neither, or both?
  • Consider recent trends of body positivism and self-empowerment, taking agency over your own sexuality, as well as disturbing trends of revenge porn.  Take a look at the Recommended readings to familiarize yourself if you want to expand the discussion.
