Blog Entry Pleasure and Pornography: Pornography and the Blindfolded Gaze of the Law
by Namita A. Malhotra published Apr 02, 2009 last modified Aug 02, 2011 08:37 AM — filed under: , , , , , , , , , ,
In the legal discourse, pornography as a category is absent, except as an aggravated form of obscenity. Does this missing descriptive category assist in the rampant circulation of pornography, either online or offline? Rather than ask that question, Namita Malhotra, in this second post documenting her CIS-RAW project, explores certain judgments that indeed deal with pornographic texts and uncovers the squeamishness that ensures that pornography as an object keeps disappearing before the law.

Blog Entry Negative of porn
by Namita A. Malhotra published Sep 12, 2009 last modified Aug 02, 2011 08:35 AM — filed under: , ,
The post deals with what has been written about Savita Bhabhi in an attempt to make sense of her peccadiloes and with the seeming futility of Porn studies located in America to our different reality. I take the liberty of exploring my own experiential account of pornography since I feel that in that account (mine and others) when done seriously, certain aspects of pornography emerge that address questions that are about cinema, images, sex, philosophy and how desire works. The title is mischeviously inspired from Dr. Pek Van Andel's recent video of MRI images of people having sex.
