19. Perhaps I am here idealizing the gravitas of other more legitimate fields; perhaps I am just saying that I don’t want to belong to a club that would include me as its member, or that would elect me as den mother! 20. See, for example, Boyle, Everyday Pornography. 21. This is from the invitation to the conference “At the Limit: Pornography and the Humanities,” which took place March 26–27, 2010, in Buffalo, New York. 22. L. Williams, Hard Core, 298. 23. See, for example, Bernardi, “Interracial Joysticks”; Boyle, Everyday Pornography; Cornell, Feminism and Pornography; and Dines, Jensen, and Russo, Pornography.

Bernardi critiques the field of pornography studies for not doing more with race, while simultaneously scolding those scholars who do discuss race if they do not simply say, as he does repeatedly, that such pornography is beyond the pale, only racist, and without any cultural interest. S. context, he does charge that those scholars—for example, me and Mercer in his second version of the Mapplethorpe chapter—are insufficiently antiracist.

My preferred title wanted to signal the historical change that had occurred between an era when all explicit sex was considered obscene and kept (as ob signaled) off scene and the more contemporary moment when the obscene had come on/scene.
