Pornography: Our Concern Also.
Osing, Gordon T.
Missouri English Bulletin, v27 n1 p20-6 Jan 1970
Pornography, while attempting on the level of comic book fantasy to approach a complex adult activity, merely serves to cheat its audience out of true and total sexuality. For adolescents passing through phases of great interest and preoccupation with pornographic books and films, the classroom often presents the only opportunity for frank, open discussion of this subject. In making students aware of the short-sighted attitudes of pornographic works, and by determining objective criteria for judging this material, the teacher can hopefully offer a more mature level on which students can begin to see themselves as complex sexual beings.
