SPRING 2004 SEMESTER
“A gentle lesson in sexuality and empowerment”
Dr. Mildred Pollner, Producer
Dr. Pollner’s documentary will view the sexual games in advertising, the socialization process reinforced, and the role models presented. Here are some of the questions that will be addressed:
What is love? What is true romance? What scenarios are involved? Does alcohol play a part? Is smoking sexy/glamorous? Are we subtly encouraged to light up or drink when partying? Does this get reinforced by TV, films and advertising? Do these messages get internalized and impact upon our behavior with unplanned ‘romantic’ interludes? Could the latter lead to violence, premature pregnancy, or AIDS? Finally what are the myths of romance?
