    A Utah college is offering a course that will evaluate and discuss different aspects of pornographic films. "Hard core pornography is as American as apple pie and more popular that Sunday night football," the course description states in part.

    Westminster College is a private liberal arts college located in Salt Lake City and is offering the class as a two credit elective. A professor from the college told FOX 13 News the course runs from May 9 to June 4. "Our approach to this billion-dollar industry is as both a cultural phenomenon that reflects and reinforces sexual inequalities," the course description explains. The course description says that students in the class will be watching and analyzing pornographic films. "We will watch pornographic films together and discuss the sexualization of race, class and gender as an experimental, radical art form," it states.

    FOX 13 News reached out to the college for a statement on the course. A spokesperson said that while the description and course may be alarming to some people, Westminster College believes the topic will help students understand the impact of pornography more fully.

    Any guesses on what the ultimate class demographics will be? My bet will be 98% male, 2% lesbians

    I think they should have a course on the "Porky's" movie franchise..........

    Sounds like a class that needs study groups to master the material.

    It really is an interesting subject. How pornography has evolved over the last hundred years. I think it’s more of a two hour lecture then a semester long subject.

    or...individual study.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    They have all seen it so why not. It is a legitimate business and could be introduced for several majors at a Liberal arts school.

    And May 8th to June 4th should provide them with plenty of relief for finals time.
    Let's go Brandon !!!
