In this lecture, author and professor Robert Jensen explores the realities of pornography. His analysis is rooted in a framework of sexual violence rather than seeing it pornography as an issue of expression or "fantasy." Consequently, his insights place pornography in its appropriate context within patriarchy.
It's a similar analysis to the one presented in his book "Getting Off: Pornography and the End of Masculinity".
