The Old Soldier sometimes can’t help but get defensive when people (family and friends) dismiss the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette as nothing more than a porn site. Is there content on this site that is pornographic? You bet there is.
What is the reason for having pornography in the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette?
Pornography is very popular on the Internet. And if pornography is good enough it is art. Have you ever heard of these novels?
- Tropic of Cancer
- Tropic of Capricorn
- Moll Flanders
- The Story of O
- The Autobiography of a Flea
All of these novels deal with explicit sex and each was considered pornography when they were published. Now each is considered a literary classic.
The Old Soldier is not saying that the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette publishes great fiction and non-fiction about explicit sex. I’m just saying that this magazine follows in the long and honorable tradition of writing that deals with explicit sex.
It is my sincere belief that when pornography is done well enough it can be art, too.
