Is pornographic material inherently harmful to women and encouraging of violent behaviour in men? Or is it possible to be a socially conscious individual and still make, perform in, and consume pornography? I say yes.
The trouble with creative writing classes in the modern university is they do not teach writing. Pop-cultural analysis, pop-psychology, and pop-philosophy are discussed, while how to write a compelling sentence is not.

An Australian eBook by an unknown female author with no marketing budget is fourth on USA Today's Best-Selling Books list, behind only The Hunger Games. And panic is gripping the nation, because these books, which are being enjoyed by The Ladies, are about The Sex.
