College Offers Course Devoted Entirely To Pornography

by Jack Butler - Hillsdale College on March 29, 2013

A relatively new Pasadena City College class called “Navigating Pornography” – devoted to giving students a venue to study and discuss a touchy topic in an academic setting, according to its professor – has already prompted praise and concern.

First offered last spring, the class is a for-credit elective open to all students and does not require any prerequisites. In just one year, it’s come under national scrutiny after its instructor, Professor Hugo Schwyzer, invited a porn star to speak to its students.

But Schwyzer defended Navigating Pornography in an interview with The College Fix, calling the subject matter legitimate.

“(The course) focuses on giving students tools to understand pornography as a historical and contemporary phenomenon,” Schwyzer told The College Fix. “Students today live in a porn-saturated culture and very rarely get a chance to learn about it in a safe, non-judgmental, intellectually thoughtful way.”

The course doesn’t merely consist of viewing pornography. In fact, students do not view porn inside the classroom. Instead, they watch it on their own time as homework. Assignments include journals, a research paper, and a final exam, Schwyzer explained.

Schwyzer, professor of history and gender studies at the Southern California-based community college, said the elective provides students an avenue to discuss pornography in an academic setting.

He said he hopes students come out of the course with a better personal understanding of some of the seminal issues of pornography, such as: “why we love porn … why some people are deeply troubled by it … and how both to make decisions about porn in their own lives and how to have conversations about porn with others.”

Response to the course in the Pasadena community has been “excellent” in most respects, “save from some in the administration and the community,” according to Schwyzer.

“Students welcome it,” he adds.

Yet in an interview with The College Fix, a colleague of Schwyzer’s who teaches at the same community college called the course “absolutely appalling.” He asked not to be named, citing tension at the campus over the course, which recently prompted a wave of national controversy over its guest speakers: porn stars.

The media coverage was generated after Schwyzer invited James Deen, a porn star who graduated from Pasadena City College as Bryan Mathew Sevilla, to give a public lecture in late February. Some of Deen’s more recent films include “Don’t Tell My Wife 2,” and “Too Small To Take It All 5,” according to his filmography.

But university officials had to cancel the public lecture, because neither the instructor nor the event sponsors had secured the necessary permits, according to a Pasadena City College press release. 

“We support the instructor’s academic freedom within the classroom,” said Dr. Robert Bell, assistant superintendent of Academic and Student Affairs. “The college’s concern is to schedule all public events according to procedures so we can insure public safety and security.”

“I want to make clear that Schwyzer is expressing his own personal opinions,” said Dr. Mark Rocha, PCC superintendent-president, in the same press release. “In no way does he speak for the college or Board of Trustees.”

Bell offered to reschedule the lecture, but Schwyzer said that Deen would unlikely be able to come on any other date. Deen did end up speaking at the college, but only to 35 students in Schwyzer’s class.

In a March 21 article for the Australian Daily Life, Schwyzer wrote that Pasadena officials had not rejected similar guests in the past.

“In its official statement, the college explained that the cancellation of the public event was due to a lack of proper paperwork,” Schwyzer wrote. “Yet I filed the same forms for Deen that I’ve filed for countless other speakers over the years, including female porn stars.”

He concluded that Deen represented a new face of the male porn star that made women more comfortable about their sexuality, which accounted for the stronger reaction.

“…there’s no denying that Deen’s meteoric rise reflects a cultural shift towards acknowledging that young (and not so young) women are as hungry for sexual pleasure as men,” he wrote. “As the unprecedentedly nervous administrative reaction to Deen’s appearance on my campus showed, that shift is profoundly threatening.

“When men realize that women aren’t just sexy, but sexual in their own right, the fear of not being able to live up to female demands can become overwhelming.”

Schwyzer also provided evidence of this effect via responses from students about both Deen and the class, who have made comments such as:  “How could you not be aroused by such a cute and charismatic young guy?”

“I’d tap that in a second,” said another of Deen.

“It felt really good to be in a classroom where we could openly acknowledge that women get horny too without it being unsafe or weird.”

On March 19, a few weeks after inviting Deen to campus, Schwyzer invited sex educator Jessica Drake, creator of “Jessica Drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex,” and star of “Men In Black: A Hardcore Parody” and “Alice in Wonderland: A XXX Parody,” to speak in class.

But this time, the Los Angeles Daily News reported, the lecture was open only to students and approved media. In an interview with the LAist, Drake said that students were receptive to her talk.

“They are really hungry for this information and they knew that they could ask me anything and not shock me,” she said.

Students asked her questions anonymously through Twitter and the professor.

“I did give a bit of specific advice, but most of all I let them know that there are so many different ways to learn more about sex and there are so many possibilities. I do caution them on getting all of their cues from fantasy.”

    Prof & college administrators need to be reassigned to jobs more suitable for their intelligence. Like sweeping the parking lot or cleaning the toilets.

    • truckbouy2

      Takes a bit of intelligence to sweep and clean a toilet. I don’t think they have what it takes.

      • SDRiders

        You know what they say. Those who can’t, teach.

        • Daniel Martin Gray

          And those who can’t TEACH, prostitute themselves.

          I object to the PROG term of “Porn Star”.

          There is no Star status in fxcking on camera, for hire.

          Like the majority of those who “Occupy” the seats of higher learning, they are WHORES.

          Nothing MORE…

          • Rocky Mountain

            For once I agree with you DMG. They are whores and the disgusting attempt to legitimize the topic through academic chicanery completely demonstrates the immoral cesspool we now find ourselves immersed in.

      • AugustineThomas

        I agree.. Don’t disrespect our fine, upstanding American janitors, who would never EVER make such an imbecilic decision as this!

        • http://www.facebook.com/rob.comment.7 Rob Comment

          And if those janitors were ever found looking at porn (not to mention teaching it to kids) they would be fired immediately!

          • TahoeGuy

            So true. I say they fire him on those same grounds.

            Honestly what do they do in such a class. Watch porn and circle jerk? I bet the school has a studio setup in back and makes a little extra on the side filming the students who get a discount on tuition.

    • HarryObrian

      I’d say they’re doing the job applicable to their intelligence, teaching pornography, transferring their lack of knowledge to the students and stealing money from students and their families.

      • AugustineThomas

        You realize they’re also using your tax dollars right?

        It’s like PBS and NPR.. I always feel so smart when I’m skewering them until I remind myself: “I’m payin for this!”

        • Kansan

          A study by Fairleigh Dickenson University found that viewers of Fox “News” knew less about current affairs than people who didn’t watch any news at all.

          NPR and PBS listeners and viewers scored the highest.

          • AugustineThomas

            Do you watch Fox News? (Our tax dollars don’t pay for Fox’s propaganda.. They do pay for PBS and NPR’s leftist propaganda.)

            By the way, the Germans under the Nazis were the most educated country in the world at the time.

      As a 31 year old guy, I’d say that I have the equivalent of a Ph.D in pornography already… as would every other guy in my generation.

      Those who deny their own (strictly!) academic knowledge in this area are just being modest… but unless they are Amish, they are also lying.

      • http://www.facebook.com/greese.monky Greese Monky

        And would you say pornography has made you a better person, or not? I submit that pornography and sexual indulgence does far more harm than good…if you can’t think of a better use of your time, then you can’t say pornography has made an improvement.

  • AntiochusEpiphanes

    Sexually frustrated fundamentalists deeply envious, pretend to be outraged.

    • http://www.facebook.com/michael.morelli.545 Michael Morelli

      You know, that was my initial reply too. Your short comment assures me we probably share many core beliefs, but I don’t think the course is a good idea. If the two paths we could trod down are raw-realism or censored theory, I’d rather students be exposed to the censored theory. Provocative courses are sure fun to sign up for if you’re a young kid looking for attention and a way to fight the establishment, but are there any real academic merits? These students will likely graduate from college without the ability to quote a single line of poetry or solve intermediate calculus problems but they’ll know about pornography. They’re already likely peering beyond graduation to possible careers or senior internships and have already shut down that childlike sparkle for discovery. That glint must be protected–yes, it must be guarded. Progressive as it may be, a pornography course offers no constructive action on the mind of a college student. It only serves to deaden soles by shocking them; and steal away life’s zest to make us all glare like young whores, our spirits defeated before their time.

      • El_Tigre_Loco

        Calculus? Try arithmetic.

      • no_1_toldyou

        Surely you were just being kind to anti-Christ above. Good for you. It was perfectly executed.

      • AntiochusEpiphanes

        You may well be right, I try not to take positions based on biased articles. In my opinion, colleges do give short shrift to important things. At the same time, I do not believe that the scientific study of pornography is illegitimate. It’s just like any other phenomenon. Colleges use seemingly insignificant topics to teach other skills. Think of the average student paper and the specificity it has.

        Bottom line: intelligent people can disagree about the propriety of this course. But to paraphrase Kant, the ranting fundie is always wrong.

    • El_Tigre_Loco

      I am not a fundamentalist and I am outraged. Humans have enough trouble denying their baser instincts without this twit feeding the beast.

      • AntiochusEpiphanes

        That just shows that you’re too easily outraged. There are many bad things going on in the world, even your back yard, and you choose not to be outraged about the truly outrageous stuff, but about something comparatively harmless (even if you disagree).

        But what about base instincts? I think it’s a pretty base instinct to have the compulsion to be told what to think on Sunday. It’s the kind of sheep mentality that has had a lot of bad consequences.

Totally made up nonsense because a news aggregator carries ALL the news and not just what HuffPo thinks is fit to print. Nobody with any intelligence believes anything the lefties say anymore.

      Hey dummy. This is one school, Pasadena City College, doing something
      stupid. This is not an invitation to the uneducated masses who read

      Walmart or something.

      • mdinaz

        You realize Drudge just links to leftist sites like the New York Times and MSNBC – which by logic, means you are uneducated as well. Welcome to the club.

          you dumm azz. Drudge is linked to both conservative and liberal
          links

          • mdinaz

            So you admit he just links to sites. And yet that makes people uneducated, “dumm azz”. Reading comments like yours achieves that.

          • pdqed

            Drudge’s website aggregates news stories. Of course, he links to sites. Look it up before you try to analyze what you think, because you haven’t done a good job.

          • f0rtylegz

            Drudge is a right-winger. A Brietbart Tucker Carlson Hannity clone.

          • mdinaz

            Look what up? I see the site everyday. The original posters point was that because someone perused the Drudge website, they are “uneducated” – yet the site only posts links to other news sites, most of them lefty sites. You haven’t done a good job keeping up on the discussion.

      Part of the problem with society today is being taught to be “non-judgemental” about everything under the sun. Judgement is a good thing not a bad thing. It should be used. Not ignored.

      • mdinaz

        Which is why they hate Christianity and Christian morals – they don’t like being judged on their amoral, deviant behavior.

        • Kansan

          Is genocide, “deviance?” What about this “Christian?”

          In 1973, Guatemalan Colonel Ríos Montt resigned from his post at the Washington embassy to participate in the March 1974 presidential elections as the candidate of the National Opposition Front (FNO). He lost the election to a rival right-wing candidate, General Kjell Eugenio Laugerud García, by 70,000 votes. Since Laugerud didn’t get a majority, the election was thrown to the government-controlled National Congress which promptly elected Laugerud.

          Ríos Montt denounced a “massive electoral fraud”, blaming Catholic
          priests who had questioned the mistreatment of the Catholic Mayans, and claimed that the priests were leftist agents. It is alleged that he was given a payoff of several hundred thousand dollars along with the post of military attaché in the embassy in Madrid, Spain, where he stayed until 1977.

          In 1978, he left the Roman Catholic Church and became a minister in the California-based evangelical/pentecostal Church of the Word; since then Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson have been personal friends. Ríos Montt’s brother Mario is a Catholic bishop, and in 1998 succeeded the assassinated Bishop Juan Gerardi as head of the human rights commission uncovering the truth of the disappearances associated with the military and his brother.

          Indigenous Mayas suffered disproportionately during Ríos Montt’s
          rule, and it is documented that his government deliberately targeted
          thousands of indigenous people since many were suspected of harboring sympathies for, supporting, or participating in the guerrilla movement.

          Under the Cold War-era logic of containment the Guatemalan state sought to eliminate the spread of communism inside its borders. The UN-backed Historical Clarification Commission found that the resulting counterinsurgency campaign, significantly designed and advanced during Ríos Montt’s presidency, included deliberate “acts of genocide” against the indigenous population. He is currently under house arrest during his trial for crimes against humanity and genocide. On 28 January 2013, judge Miguel Angel Galves, opened a pre-trial hearing in a trial against retired general and former dictator Efrain Rios Montt and retired General José Mauricio Rodríguez Sánchez for Genocide and crimes against humanity

      College professors are not only disdainful of views they do not agree with but will also squeel on other professors to the dean if they hear another professor not toeing the liberal line of “do what thou wilt”. Colleges are stacked with Commies and the culture of America has changed dramatically as a result. People are no longer self reliant but look to the govenment to solve all of their problems and the government in turn is more than happey to frame every problem in such a way as to make it appear that the government is the only entity capable of solving said problem. In 20 years, if America survives, we will all be living in a super capitalist state ran by bureaucrats. At that point we will all effectively be under Communist control.

      A friend once told me she was taking a pornography course which was necessary towards her pursuit of a graduate sociology degree. The reasons were to inoculate her senses against all kinds of perversion and dysfunction she would come across in working with both individuals and families. I wonder how that turned out when she graduated and got her job with social services in a nearby city. She was in her fifties when she was in the university, and also was born in The Netherlands, an extremely liberal, open-minded country. I would love to know if the course helped in her endeavors.

    More evidence of a system that is morally bankrupt. I can’t for the life of me understand why anyone would pays 10′s or 100′s of thousands of dollars into an “education” system that graduates kids from high-school who can’t read, can’t do basic math, and can’t write complete and cohesive sentences. We need to completely de-fund this broken system and go rebuild it from the ground up. Better still, home-schooling is the best method of teaching, I speak from practical experience and and am married to a school teacher.

    Schwyzer told The College Fix. “Students today live in a porn-saturated culture and very rarely get a chance to learn about it in a safe, non-judgmental, …”

    There you go. It’s “non-judgmental” which is the Left’s leading jab used to disarm opponents. I mean after all, who are we to judge? No matter how vile, how aberrant the behavior. No matter how it debases the culture and pollutes the mind. As long as we remain “non-judgemental” all is just swell in Lefty land.

    • galocke

      “Non-judgmental” is another, slightly sanitized way of saying “devoid of thought” or, at the very least, “devoid of critical thinking.” The perpetuation of liberalism depends on society becoming as “non-judgmental” as possible.

Why not just let them pay for the useless degree, never take a class and just stay home?

  • espy

    While pornography can be something to study, having porn actors come in as if they have some kind of insight to the factors that make porn such a universal phenomenon is like asking an actor to explain the motivations behind their role. Most of the time they can’t. They don’t understand it because they’re not payed to understand it, the directors and the like tell the actor how they’re supposed to react to a situation and the actor does so. For example, Jane Fonda is going to play Nancy Reagan in an upcoming film, does anyone really think she understands Nancy Reagan? The same can be said for almost any role. The actors bring no more knowledge to the subject matter than someone off the street. The better person to ask would be directors or producers, but even then they’re more in it for the money, and when it comes to porn people don’t watch it for the dialogue.

    Its something that needs to be discussed but also something where one needs to understand that the actual films and the like bring little to understanding.

    Pornography is addictive and destructive. It turns women into objects and destroys their humanity. Many men who consume it are unable to have sex with their own wives even at in the youth of their manhood. The endorphin overload pornography causes has to be countered by the body. It does so in such a way that normal, healthy sex with one’s wife becomes impossible.

    Is it no wonder that we are warned to flee sexual temptation in the Bible. The editor in chief is also the engineer of the human body and soul and knows what is good for us and what is bad for us. Sex inside marriage is wonderful and per His design. For that reason our Creator allows us to enjoy the brief, temporary endorphin overload it causes without harm. But a sustained overload such as what is caused by pornography is dealt with by putting up endorphin blockers to bring the thrill down to manageable levels.

      So many failed marriages are the result of one or both in the marriage having had numerous prior sexual relationships. Making love is without a doubt the most spiritually satisfying experience I have ever had. Sex was meant to establish a bond between a man and a woman. That bond is diminished by the very act of having sex with numerous partners. Many times I wish that both myself and my wife would have waited until we were married to have sex. It is the sex that we had before marriage that caused irreparable harm to both of us. Because of previous unwise dalliances we were unable to have children. “The wages of sin are death” and infertility, and broken hearts and….

    I have a minority opinion on this topic. In preemptive self defense, take note that I am not a liberal… I despise the current US administration and the direction the dems and the left are moving this country. In ten years, when the waiting list to see an ob/gyn will be 10 months long, we may finally realize our collective stupidity in twice electing that lying frat-boy of a president, but by then, it will be too late as we will be stuck in a bureaucratic nightmare from which we cannot wake up. Now on to my relevant comment:

    I think this course is a great idea. Just because some people are opposed does not disqualify the subject for discussion. Let’s not fall into the same wicked behavior long practiced by the left in trying to silence those with dissenting opinions. Society as a whole benefits from open exchanges on every topic. If you don’t like the course, don’t sign up.

    And finally my real reason: In my own college (pre-internet) days, a homely, shy girl such as myself had very little sexual outlet. It would have been so fun to openly view and discuss porn with others. I think it would have drawn me out of my very thick shell years earlier than what actually transpired. My life could have been changed for the better. And certainly, at least, my fingers would have been far more active then, as they are now.

    Why are porn actors not arrested for prostitution? Private prostitution is less offensive than prostitution where the evidence is broadcast to the world as entertainment.

    Go to a porno flick and get your degree cheaper and faster than the University. You’ll get a job in that Industry, whereas, none are available in any other sector of the Economy.

    America is going to Hell and ridiculous classes in college like this prove it. Instead of asking ourselves how do we become better neighbors, better parents, better providers, more humble, less self serving and educating children about the virtues of serving others and looking at our relationship with God, we get porn class. What a terrific country we live in when those that are setting the agenda are intent on turning all of your little girls into sluts and your sons into homosexuals.

  • AKBAN

    Parents it is becoming obvious that it is not smart to send your child to a “big name” school or university bc stupid crap like this is becoming far to common in our morally corrupt “nation”.

    Like aubreyfarmer said, America is going to hell and quick. God save us all.

  • ms20

    Wow. A guy obsessed with porn has figured out a way to watch it all day long AND get paid for it. That is pretty ballsy. The amazing part of this story is not that he did this and gets to talk about porn all day long with young impressionable students, its that he was not stopped by any of his superiors along the way. My god.

  • Michael White

    How cool…how enlightened…how progressive. For more than 100 years, PCC could prode itself of quality education…that is, until now. This is just another opportunity for some snarky, pompous, inadequate educator to display his shortcomings in front of a room full of young women.

    An excerpt from “Communist Goals” read into the Congressional Record in 1963:

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

      Satanism itself could do no better – it has nothing over the progressive socialist/communists. This whole lot of people and their agenda are driven by a love for and adoration of evil.

    Legal Porn is beautiful. Filming a sex act that causes the intense pleasure of countless people in the future is wonderful and should be celebrated, not chastised. The performers must realized the consequences by short-sighted sex bigots, and the consumers must be careful not to get addicted to it since it is so pleasurable to watch.

      I can promise you one thing, the person who is required to present a coursework while in an interview for a prestigious career will have a difficult time explaining away their pentient for perversion. I own and operate a small, but successful business, and I guarantee you, I’d never hire someone with a fascination for porn where a job requires use of a computer connected to the internet. No foresight, no wisdom, no opportunity.

  • http://www.foxnews.com Mtxun

    Tragiically, when there are so many college students that grew up with the internet, the professor has NOTHING to teach this generation in the area of pornographic filth. I would bet that most of them have made their own raunchy videos for their own “enjoyment” or to upload. It used to be, having a higher education formed your character, challenged you to be a better person, more INTELLIGENT, discerning the noble from the lowly and base. Anymore, college is all about filth and degredation. Finally, WHEN IS THE COLLEGE EDUCATION COST BUBBLE GOING TO BURST. IT IS WELL OVERDUE, WELL OVERDUE.

    Sad to think of the desparate Economic woes today, where many public schools are having to shut down, and read stories like this one, WASTING its resources on Garbage and kids who do manage to actually Graduate from HS cannot read or write, have NO skills and will be forever on the Public Tax PAYERS backs…buying PORN and charging it to their Food Stamps or Welfare.

    Why not just teach a class that studies drug addiction in a thoughtful and intellectual way? Let the students inject with crack or morphine each night as “homework” so they have a basis for class discussion the next day. How about gambling? Alcoholism? Let them get college credit for practicing every vice until they find the one that hooks ‘em.

  • SurfinUSA

    This reminds me that during the Financial Meltdown in 2008 that several of our “top” regulators in the Securities and Exchange Commission watched 10-12 hours of pornography a day, using government money to pay for “web cam girs” and memberships into porn websites.

    ABC News reported “31 serious offenders over the past two and a half years. Seventeen of the offenders were senior SEC officers with salaries ranging from
    $100,000 to $222,000 per year
    . Google abc news april 22 2010 porn to link to the story.

    If big shot government workers can fiddle (with themselves) while Rome burns (financial crisis), then why get flummoxed when college students are taught how to get their ya-ya’s on line?

    Just another sickening example. Last week it was the “stomp on Jesus” assignment at FAU — this week it’s porn. At midlife, I’m back in university finishing my degree. I specifically chose a reputable private Christian school. Hence, I don’t have to deal with this sort of secular progressive nonsense. “But I can’t afford a private university” some will argue — here’s the thing — neither can I. But there is no way I would last in the cesspools known as public universities. Good grief!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-Smith/1603220294 John Smith

    Near as I’ve been able to determine Porn is not really learning about SEX, but simply exploiting perversion…………. Your own intersts insuch things dipict your own perversion or your almost matching version of an already known perversion. Yes, it is not perversion when you and your wife or husband are doing it together, but whenit is you and someone else who is essentially a stranger. It is perversion.
    Oh, and because I put judgement on it; my thought is niot valid???? Understand that poorly acted Porn is essentially carrying judgement upon itself with it.

  • xbabyxbluesxxx

    The ignorance in these comments is absolutely unreal. I have been in the adult entertainment industry for over 2 years now. I star in the some of the videos that you watch in the privacy of your own home. Some of you are so quick to judge this class by commenting about it here and then most likely going about your day. You are temporarily outraged and then forget about it in a couple hours or maybe discuss/joke about it in the break room at work. I have to point out that working in the adult industry pays incredibly well. In fact, I am paying my way through college (business law), with no financial assistance, have no debt, have my own car, home, health insurance, donate to multiple charities, can afford to help out my family, etc. Sure, it isn’t a typical job. However, don’t knock something that you are most likely jacking off to in secret, or, let me guess, you are too good for that? Not to mention, I do the same thing that most people do in their own lives, I just get paid for it.

    “Non-judgmental” sure. I’d put good money on this being taught from some femi-nazi viewpoint with half the class being how “oppressed” women are by it and the other half will focus on the tiny amount of violent or weird porn rather than the reality of bleach blondes with too much plastic surgery with some fratboy looking dude.
