Westminster College in Salt Lake City has a course in which students “watch pornographic films together.” “Hard core pornography is as American as apple pie and more popular than Sunday night football,” reads the course description.
Campus Reform reports:
Students at the private liberal arts college can take “FILM-300O: Porn” to earn two credits toward their film studies degree during the 2022-2023 school year, according to the film department’s website.
“Hard core pornography is as American as apple pie and more popular than Sunday night football,” the course description reads. “Our approach to this billion-dollar industry is as both a cultural phenomenon that reflects and reinforces sexual inequalities (but holds the potential to challenge sexual and gender norms) and as an art form that requires serious contemplation.”
“We will watch pornographic films together and discuss the sexualization of race, class, and gender and as an experimental, radical art form,” the description adds.
Tuition at Westminster College is $39,832 per year. Imagine borrowing for college and going into debt so your kid can watch hardcore porn during class.
Utah used to have the highest per capita consumption of online porn in the U.S.A.. In 2009, Computer World reported that the “biggest consumers of online adult entertainment live in the great state of Utah. An average of 5.47 people per 1000 broadband subscribers pay for porn in Orrin Hatch’s home state. (Utah also leads in porn consumption among the general population and dial-up users, in case you’re wondering.)”
