Disputatio Categoriae:Pornographia

Jump to navigation Jump to search

I don't know if we need this category at all. Some anon has created it today, together with articles about porn actors. Honestly I think those should be deleted, I know English has all kinds, but I think they lower the tone of an encyclopedia to the obscene. The exception would be those widely known outside porn (such as Ronaldus Jeremy) or famous for something else. Pantocrator 18:25, 10 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)

The pages are just biographies of those actors, I do not see how that can lower the tone of an encyclopedia - specially because they are writen in good Latin. As far as I've read, there are no obscenities in them, and I do not think that those four biographies are about minor actors, or actors that only do porn. --Xaverius 18:51, 10 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)
So you think they act in non-pornographic films? LOL! What I mean is that almost all porn actors are 'minor' compared to actors in regular movies whose names are known. Pantocrator 19:09, 10 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)
Please, don't laugh - for these here at least it is a fact: Brent Corrigan for instance, and Rochus Siffredi is also a director and producer. Anyway, as far as the articles are not self-promotion pages with encyclopaedic content, there is no reason to delete them.--Xaverius 19:16, 10 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)
I would say, since Wikipedia doesn't censor (or scarcely), we can accept articles on this topic, as on others, if notability is demonstrated. However, I don't think these biographies are ideal members of a category "pornographia". I would call sex films "pelliculae de re veneria" and those who work in them "histriones/ludiones rerum veneriarum". Other suggestions? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 08:56, 11 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)
Certainly this category needs to be subdivided, but not deleted, or the articles included in this may not be ideal members, as you say. On the exact wording, I would not know how to phrase it other than categoria:Histriones pornographiae--Xaverius 13:48, 11 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)
Yes, one could use that term. I hesitated because I felt that "pornographia" has tended to be pejorative (and in some jurisdictions illegal). Its literal meaning is intended to be pejorative: "describing whores". Therefore I suggested an older Latin term that seemed to me more neutral. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 14:02, 11 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)
Fine for me.--Xaverius 14:09, 11 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)
