Uncensored : for the flexible reader [2012-2013 Spring]

by Friedman, Nina, Nelson, Rosie


A magazine created by Colorado College students as part of the course, FG200 Introduction to Feminist Thought, taught by Assistant Professor Heidi Lewis during Block 7, 2013.


Porn is a difficult topic to cover. In porn, we see the commodification of sexuality, identities, and bodies…yikes! Carole S. Vance touches upon the importance of a nuanced analysis of porn in her essay ‘Pleasure and Danger: Toward a Politics of Sexuality.’ She argues, ‘To focus only on pleasure and gratification ignores the patriarchal structure in which women, yet to speak only of sexual violence and oppression ignores women’s experience with sexual agency.’ Uncensored aims to avoid one-sided views of pornography and instead apply a multifaceted approach to the industry. Instead of censoring porn, Uncensored magazine chooses to explore its potential for FEMINIST ACTION. While doing so, we remain cognizant of the consequences we see translating between the private realm of porn and the public realm of sexual relationships. Read on for a raunchy, nuanced variety of pieces speaking to the role that porn can play in our lives.”--Letter from the Editor, Tess Gattuso
