What is Pornography

Pornography is not a subject but a peripheral..It reduces the gap between the consumer and consumed.pornographic image strips off the context and magnifies the area of consumption.It freezes in time what is otherwise teasingly ephemeral.pornography portrays the object as a thing-yet -to be-consumed.Thereby the human in the image is obscured.
It is not an accident that pornography is all around.it an inexorable process of a rapidly consuming world,a world where any valuability lies in the extent of consumption for personal gratification.This way we become consumers of pornography in one way or the other...

    Perhaps pornography is just that which offends the individual. I do not like or appreciate when someone I do not know imposes upon me their view of what pornography is.
    From a personal point of view, pornography is the dark places where we as individuals do not wish to go, or have been to and not liked, or that which makes and perpetuates pain or sorrow.
    Isn't the darkness of porn, the opposite (and equal) of the light of beauty?
    And isn't it possible what I see as beauty may be viewed as 'the shadow' by someone else?
