Strange bedfellows: The interpenetration of philosophy and pornography

In Dave Monroe (ed.), Porn: How to Think with Kink. Wiley-Blackwell. pp. 22-34 (2010)
Abstract
This paper explores some surprising historical connections between philosophy and pornography (including pornography written by or about philosophers, and works that are both philosophical and pornographic). Examples discussed include Diderot's Les Bijoux Indiscrets, Argens's Therésè Philosophe, Aretino's Ragionamenti, Andeli's Lai d'Aristote, and the Gor novels of John Norman. It observes that these works frequently dramatize a tension between reason and emotion, and argues that their existence poses a problem for philosophical arguments against pornography.
