1. The internet is for porn! Watch Philosophy Tube’s three videos on the morality of pornography at https://youtu.be/tytukM4rUuI (“vanilla” porn); https://youtu.be/-7cs4RcORcs (hentai and furries); and https://youtu.be/lzUrVeIdIBM (revenge porn). Answer the following three questions; one paragraph per question. Also, yes, I get it. It’s porn. It’s sex. It’s… being discussed in a virtual classroom? It’s taboo. Keep your discussion civil and professional, kiddos:
A. On ‘vanilla’ porn. (Note, by “vanilla porn”, I have in mind ‘conventional’ pornography that tends to be made by a studio of some sort, featuring contracted stars, and can be downloaded or streamed at—well, I’ll assume that you know where to access porn, and don’t need me to tell you. I want to keep my job, after all.). There are two ways to morally object to watching porn from Kant’s perspective: it violates duties that we have to ourselves, and it objectifies others. Explain these objections. Also: Do you find them convincing? Why or why not?
B. On hentai, etc.: Two arguments against watching porn are that 1) if the actors involved did not consent to the act, then it would be immoral to watch that porn; and 2) watching porn could lead to behaving more immorally towards other people. How do these arguments apply to hentai, my little pony, or furry porn? Does the first argument suggest that these forms of pornography are immoral? How about the second argument? Use Kantian deontology to help justify your own position.
C. On leaked nudes and revenge porn: Suppose your favorite celebrity, who you find incredibly attractive, has their cellphone hacked, and suppose hackers acquire a video of them having sex. Suppose they upload the video to the internet, free for anyone to download. Suppose they say this to justify their action, “This is a video of the actor having consensual sex. Further, it is also obvious that they consented to being filmed while having sex. Therefore, because they consented to these two things, there’s nothing wrong with you downloading and watching this video.” According to the author of this video, this argument is seriously flawed. Explain.
