A college in the United States is offering a course on 'hardcore' pornography to students, and throughout the course, students will sit down with their instructors and view porn videos together.
Yes, you read that correctly! A college in the United States has gone viral for providing a course on pornographic films, in which students would "view pornography videos together." According to a snapshot from the college website, the unusual course is named 'Film 3000 Porn.'
According to media sources, Westminster College in the US state of Utah is the first to offer this course. The course is part of the 'Film 3000' curriculum and is worth three credits.
The description of the course, on social media, is as follows –
“Hardcore pornography is as American as apple pie and more popular than Sunday night football. Our approach to this billion-dollar industry is as both a cultural phenomenon that reflects and reinforces sexual inequalities (but holds the potential to challenge sexual and gender norms) and as an art form that requires serious contemplation. We will watch pornographic films together and discuss the sexualization of race, class, and gender as an experimental, radical art form."
The course's goal is for students and professors to debate the sexualization of race, class, and gender as an experimental, radical art form. According to the institution, there are some optional courses available, and the pornography course is "a chance to analyze societal concerns."
The college administration feels that this pornographic course will assist students to determine whether or not to pursue serious research on problematic themes.
However, college officials have been under fire from some quarters who claim that watching pornography as a lesson is "simply awful." The pornography class will be offered during the academic year 2022-2023.
