Pornography , representation of sexual behaviour in books, pictures, statues, motion pictures, and other media that is intended to cause sexual excitement. The distinction between pornography illicit and condemned material and erotica which is broadly tolerated is largely subjective and reflects changing community standards. Because the very definition of pornography is subjective, a history of pornography is nearly impossible to conceive; imagery that might be considered erotic or even religious in one society may be condemned as pornographic in another. Thus, European travelers to India in the 19th century were appalled by what they considered pornographic representations of sexual contact and intercourse on Hindu temples such as those of Khajuraho see photograph ; most modern observers would probably react differently. In many historical societies, frank depictions of sexual behaviour, often in a religious context , were common. In ancient Greece and Rome, for instance, phallic imagery and depictions of orgiastic scenes were widely present, though it is unlikely that they fulfilled anything like the social or psychological functions of modern pornography see phallicism. Some of the stories in the Decameron , by the medieval Italian poet Giovanni Boccaccio , are licentious in nature.

The Midway was a never-ending source of gayety…Most enchanting of all, perhaps, of the glorified side-shows…was the Java Village, with its houses and industries straight from the South Seas, and its exquisite, tiny women, dainty as porcelain, strange as oriental gods. In their own theater a new kind of charm was revealed that was partly grotesque, a grace that was stiff with decorative gesture. I was on the cultural and culinary beats when the publication began, shortly after I moved back to Chicago after living in far-off alien places such as Japan and New York City. About a year before, I finished a happy two years in Indonesia where I shared a bamboo house with bats and rats in a village inside the Special Region of Yogyakarta, the cultural heart of Java.
The uses of the Erotic inspired us to think how we, African Diaspora students, exercise eroticism in our ideologies, values, physicality, and our entire sense of being. For our final presentation, we individually registered our own insights about the erotic and incorporated a video montage that coalesced all of our knowledge about popular culture displays of eroticism and what they mean to us. We also explained what gender, sexuality, and dance meant to us and how it all ties in together to perpetuate the uses of the erotic.
