Get empowered – make porn?

Get empowered – make porn?

A University of California professor turns porn auteur (link not safe for work) by making an Asian/Chinese porn film that seeks to “address issues of cultural stereotyping and Asian-American identity”. While presumably providing lots of skin on skin action.

Not only that, there’s even a documentary about the Asian-American porn industry/movement. Not exactly something that I thought was about to dominate the porn world.

I’m not even particularly sure as to why they’re bothering. It’s not going to work. Your average punter isn’t watching porn for the political subtext – they’re watching it to get off.

Western society (and Chinese women for that matter) don’t seem to find Asian / Chinese men particularly sexy – the closest sexualised male there’s been lately was Rick Yune – and he was made albino for Die Another Day anyway!

And more importantly, there must be better ways of grabbing attention or being empowered than making pornography. And despite my natural propensity for making headline acts, the general activites listed in the referred articles seem far more designed to attract brief tabloid attention than to actually change things. Probably because most people in Western society couldn’t give two figs. They think the Asian / Chinese minorities are doing alright, so why bother thinking beyond the stereotype? Which we tend to enhance ourselves anyway.

  • Maybe the prof is worried that things might go the way of the panda and he is seeking to keep mating rates high???

    Interesting post, Alex and I were discussing at the weekend why there appears to be a derth of Asian male with non-Asian females against, apparent, high percentage of Asian females with non-Asian males. Any ideas??? Our conversation stemed from our being given the 'evil eye' by an eldery Asian gentleman on the subway.

    With regard to delicious Asian actors don't forget Ken Watanabe in The Last Samurai (IMO he was far more attractive than Thomas Cruise Mapother IV)!!!!

    well as a chinese male… i dont particularly fin non-asian females attractive.. .im sure many of my peers feel the same way. Also as to address the issue of asian women dating non-asian men.. well… some are golddiggers (this is more of an issue if a caucasian person finds a wife IN an asian country. many times the female does this for a US residency status so she may leave asia.) a second reason is that the traditional role for women after marriage isnt very appealing to some women. (since it IS a male dominated society) western relationship romance is very different as well. there is not as much a"need" for "romance". Thus when the female
    is courted by a westerner she may feel a greater joy because she gets more attention, thus she will fall for a westerner instead of an asian person. that is my thoughts on this… if you not agree. remember this is ONLY.. let me repeat ONLY my OPINION. so please dont track down my ip and send me a virus or hate mail or say shit about me…i would apreciate it very much.
