Recently, in class, I was assigned to write a paper, arguing a controversial argument. Since I am an artist, I decided to argue Art vs Pornography. In my research, I looked up the definitions of both these words. What I found was shocking! According to Merriam- Webster, a work of art, by definition, is something that gives high aesthetic satisfaction and gives sensational feelings to the viewer or listener. Pornography, is the depiction of acts in a sensational manner so as to arouse an intense emotional reaction. Therefore, it seems to me, that pornography and art are the same thing, purely by definition! Does this mean that everything we look at is pornography!? My God! How do we escape from this hole of immorality?
Well kids, we don’t. So enjoy!
