Glamorizing Porn at Yale

"Sex week" is taking place at Yale.  If you know of my work, you know how strongly I believe in colleges and universities addressing healthy sexuality.  This particular "Sex Week" is not the kind of "healthy sexuality" we believe in promoting.

Next Saturday, as part of the student-run program "Sex Week" at Yale, pornographer Steve Hirsch (founder and owner of leading porn studio Vivid Productions) will be at Yale University to talk about how he has mainstreamed the porn industry.

One of the contests to take place during the week at Yale is – best "Vivid Productions Look Alike Girl."

As Gail Dines states in the article which has a link to it below, the atrocity is no counter-voice is being given the chance to be heard at Yale during this program.  This is not a panel.  There are no speakers scheduled afterward to follow-up on the dangers of pornography and the industry itself.  Thus, you have a Pornographer being glamorized at one of our country’s most prestigious schools.

Knowing Yale University has some outstanding women on their campus who work hard against these very dangerouse messages, I am saddended to see their voices are not even being given a chance to be expressed on their own campus.  This event is not a knock on Yale University.  This program simply proves how violent, unhealthy, and dangerous sexuality has become accepted through pornography.
