Presented by the USC College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, the Lesbian X Rated panel will include Kysar, documentary filmmaker Michelle Johnson and Roxxie from CyberDyke.net.
Organizers describe the event as an “academic discussion about the gender complexities and sexual eroticism of females in pornography.” It will focus on the difference between lesbian pornography intended for a lesbian audience, and that created primarily for a straight male audience. Video reels depicting the different forms of lesbian pornography also will be screened.
“I’m really looking forward to taking part in this discussion and screening, meeting my esteemed fellow panelists, and interacting with what I’m sure will be a very engaged, enthusiastic audience,” Kysar said. “I’m sure there will be a bit of controversy along the way, as whenever you discuss pornography.
“Even in an open-minded, academic way, there’s bound to be some strong and contrasting opinions expressed. I’m anticipating a lively, substantive discussion, for sure.”
To commemorate the event, PinkVisual.com is offering a half-price discount on all its DVD titles through the end of October.
“The half-price promo gives those not able to attend the event an opportunity to see the lesbian porn we produce first-hand, and stimulate their own discussions … or stimulate something, at any rate,” Kysar said.
The Lesbian X Rated discussion will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday in room 101 of the Seeley G. Mudd building on the USC campus. Attendees must be 18 years or older to enter. The event is free to attend, and seating is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
