Free Porn Studies


The inaugural issue of the academic journal Porn Studies is out, and it’s a big one, by which I mean it is a double issue. Not that size matters. The publisher, Taylor & Francis, has made the entire contents free to download, and after a cursory inspection I can report two things my readership probably wants to know: (1) it seems to be entirely SFW, and (2) it seems no philosophers contributed to it. But philosophers who write on pornography should note that the journal is interdisciplinary and presumably it is open to contributions from philosophers. In the introductory essay, the editors write:

We hope that the journal will become a central space for drawing together work from across disciplines. We also hope that the establishment of the journal will encourage more publication on pornography as authors interested in this area will recognize that there is a ‘home’ for their research.

The creation of the journal, they add without a hint of irony, “has been a labour of love.”
