Pro-Feminst Men and Pornography
Hugo Schwyzer, over at his blog, has an interesting post about pro-feminist men and the use of pornography. I agree with his claim that there is little discussion in the pro-feminist blogosphere (and in larger pro-feminist circles, in my view) about pro-feminist men's relationship with porn (especially on-line porn and strip clubs). He points out that there are resources for men to stop the compulsion of viewing pornography, but they are mostly focused around religious men (like the Promise-Keepers). There are little resources or places for discussion and support for non-religious men to examine their relationship to pornography. A great post on a controversial and mostly-hidden topic.

That's cool that there's at least some discussion... I consider myself to be a feminist, and I'm okay with porn and strip clubs. Stereotypical male attitudes towards the two tend to bother me. I wish we Americans could embrace and enjoy sex entertainment without being too childish. Of course, we're really childish when it comes to sex period.
