WWC Loves / Hates Porno Revolution part 3

We love those folks in the Appalachians! They love bikes and they love sex and they expression and they love sharing!

It has been just about a month since the students of Warren Wilson College outside Asheville, NC had to pile more than 30 people into a 10×10 room to watch Bike Smut. This obvious fire safety was made necessary due to the schools discomfort with our sharing of independent, DIY transportation erotica, some of which made by residents who were trying to share their rather mature ideas with other consenting adults.

Interesting they intervened with our local student supporters, then let other students use the WWC facilities to show how lame most porn is.

The film criticizes the way pornography, as one of the most profitable cultural mediums, promotes skewed sexual behaviors, particularly through sexism, racism, and violence. The film highlights how this behavior becomes practiced in the viewer of pornography’s private sexual life.
“We’re critical of the way an industry capitalizes and makes films for monetary gain. [Pornographic] films are affecting our sex lives, so in effect profit motive is affecting our sex lives by extension,” said Comstock.

We think its at least a step in the right direction that they are using their public space to talk frankly about sex, porn and the effects on our society. Too bad they couldn’t see the forrest from the trees to accept that what we do is precisely that with the added bonus of actual manifestations of how we can DO IT BETTER!


As our former tourista/ and reigning Bike Smut Theoretician, Liberty Sprocket eloquently stated:

We believe that by riding bicycles we take control of our transportation, of how we move
across our communities and interact with them. Bicycles free us from the rigid boundaries of a car. By asking our community to make erotic films, we can help redefine obscenity, and free ourselves from the capitalist ideals of pornography. Bike Smut is about reclaiming agency over our daily lives and defeating the patriarchal appropriation of our bodies.

Be sure talk about it, but dont just talk. Unless you are ready to actually take your sexuality by the handlebars and steer the way you wanna go you are still just talking about getting on a revolution.
