Porn is also anti human because it creates a picture of what sex should be that is unreal and boring. Andy Warhol once said Hollywood has been doing a forty year striptease, showing a little more each year to get people to come back. Unless we put ourselves our creativity, our minds, and yes, our bodies into representing eroart as the humanistic alternative, the pornographer, the sexist, and the moralist will win by default. Half inch video, home video, is cheap in materials, editing, and post production, and distribution is much, much cheaper than in any other format. But it is not fashionable to offer an alternative to porn.
So they cram in as many tubes going in and out of holes as possible in ninety minutes. The women's movement has changed people's standards with regard to sex and the quality of relationships. There seems to be an unwritten rule that if it is sexy sexual nude, it has to be dumb. These are the fundamental reasons why to be anti porn. Historically, one of the tools of this art has been the sex act.
Fashion is not one of them. Eroart in all media can show this way of relating. This may be true for some people, but for most people, it gets boring once curiosity is satisfied, curiosity about what it looks like, and once the possibility of seeing everything is fulfilled. This child like need is the healthy human desire that is perverted in porn.
Art can slowly take eroplay out of the taboo area. Almost everyone is against porn films. The camera doesn't fade or cut away from erotic scenes before it is logical to do so. It is fashionable to be anti porn. We are forced to separate it from porn, and rightly so.
And it is just one of many tools. The anti sex, anti pleasure, anti nudity morality is not one of the good reasons to be anti porn. This can be done in all media. It is personal and intimate violence in a hostile and impersonal form. Show pornography up as being drab, inhuman, unfun by creating a fun, human, happy alternative. This kind of art is universal and can be traced back to the caves and beyond.
But it is fashionable to be against porn. The best way to undermine sexism and pornography is to create an alternative to them. There are many good reasons to be against porn. Almost everybody in his right mind.
There has been a huge amount of time and energy wasted trying to define and ban pornography. It creates pictures of what you should be like. In its broadest definition, erovideo could be any kind of film westerns, thrillers, science fiction, etc. This is one of the functions of art. I am trying to define eroart. Isadora Duncan is a person whom I would call an artist in the eroplay tradition.
It creates a special time and place where taboos can be broken, where new ways can be introduced into the society. The pornographers will not do it either because of their lack of skill, insight, and morality, or because they too are ruled by money, and by criminals. As a result, the sales and rentals on adult tapes are going down, and the adult cable systems are going out of business. The time is right for an art form that addresses this healthy desire.
They want to be turned on in a way that is not sexual; they want to see nudity without stupidity; they want to see new ways of relating between humans both in and out of bed. They have scrapped, or are scrapping, the old sexist ways and attitudes, and now they find the old style porn disgusting. She used nudity especially at private parties where she could dance without feeling moral judgments and movement to turn people on physically to their own bodies and to passion for life. Take back nudity, pleasure, sex, and eroticism from pornography. But everybody isn't in his right mind, which is why there is porn anyway.
. This is the true goal of eroplay art, which has been called eroart. The other way that art can make it easier for us in everyday life, and at the same time fight against the anti pleasure, anti human morality, against sexism, against pornography, against romanticism, is by showing us eroplay, both with and without sex, and getting us acquainted and comfortable with eroplay. Film and video can do this. The breaking of taboos ideally should not be a part of eroplay for everyday life. This kind of repressive morality is the main reason why during the nineteenth century kinky violent porn caught on.
