asking questions about porn, the internet, and new webcam-perspective

rachel at rabbit write asked me to participate in lady porn day – a internet-wide invitation for women to talk about and share porn and masturbation on 2/22/11

I think I talk a lot about generation Y as the first total generation of autonomous Users trying to figure out how to live and create in an era that has no past to model itself after (maybe less on this blog because it’s supposed to be fashion-oriented but I’m sure I’ve mentioned it more than once in terms of art/print). I guess it’s because no one ever argues in defense of my generation—instead we represent the new vast wasteland, the bastardization of social interaction, and the unregulated publication of private moments. People want Internet black boxes and (self-) censorship in the wake of sexting, Chatroulette, and Facebook. Why are we so concerned with Internet privacy despite the fact that we continue to watch and participate in pornography online under the guise of anonymity?

Pornography is defined as work that has no artistic merit. Is that why it stays on the fringes of our society—watched by everyone and talked about by no one? As the Internet challenges authorship and the ideology of the original can we not begin to view porn as art in its unapologetic “lack of serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value” (Miller v. California)? The digital age has made art so accessible it has in turn changed it and integrated it seamlessly back into mass culture, but has the revolution of free porn and our ability to act as a collective anonymous online make masturbation/pornography more acceptable or more taboo?

As an artist (who likes art) and a young person (who likes porn) I am more interested in using the Internet as a medium to explore voyeurism/exhibitionism culture, our private/public selves, nudity/pornography, and how we exorcise our mind from our body in cyberspace. What is the attraction in our ability now to broadcast ourselves via webcam versus watching pornography online? Interactivity?

Is this the female gaze? Or proof of the acceptance of male “selfploitation” and expression of sexuality even over the Internet versus that of the female—which is in turn fetishized and made precious? Can we eliminate the Madonna/whore complex online by reexamining the way we view porn and our own naked bodies? Can we say fuck privacy, what I do online is an enduring timeline of who I am and how I change and I shouldn’t be invalidated as a human being of moral constitution because I choose to put myself out there?

I don’t really know, but I’m trying to figure it out.
