The Porn Study: Two Weeks In, How do you explain pubic hair?

In science you have to do this thing called “explicating,” which is basically creating an exhaustive definition of every single concept you are studying. For the porn study we are researching a bunch of shit which translates to a bunch of flipping explicating.

Here are some things my adviser and I explicated this week:

Consent

“passed out”

Physical vs. verbal aggression

Gay for pay

Pubic hair

Mutilation

Docking vs frotting

MTF and FTM

Sounding

Private Area

Penetration

There were a few other explication debates but these are the ones that stuck with me. We honestly had at least a 5 minutes conversation about whether or not a man’s chest should be included in “private area.” We had to explain just what consent in porn looked like. And I personally created a six-sentence description of what pubic hair is and how to code.

This may not look like it to most people but for me this week was #success.

And thus men’s chests are private areas……
