My first annotation is about why men need to watch adult videos and what would their girlfriend feel when she found out her boyfriend watching adult videos, and my sources are from PTT or the discussion boards. Therefore, most part of my sources is from young people, who are familiar with Internet than elder generation. My second annotation is from Chuen-Juei Ho, the professor of Department of English at NCU, talking about, in Taiwan, sex has always been posted on a negative tag. My third annotation is going to talk about a TV talk show, Hot Issue, viewing why men like to watch adult videos, it mentions different answers and opinions between generation and characters, which some are fathers some are not, or some are married some are not. In the show, they also interview one couple who would watch adult videos together, it is really not the same as the usual thing couple would do in Taiwan.
After the discussion in class, my fourth annotation may do deep research in the different view about pornography between America and Europe. In my first and third annotation, I had found the difference between different age, so in the last annotation, it would be better to compare not only the age but also intercultural difference. There are some papers talking about this, and it is interesting to do this research that I hadn’t thought about it before.
Other group’s topics are common. But when listening to their reports, it seems they had read some information about their topic, so they could write their topics in new and different angles.
Justine and Joselin’s topic, “Premarital Cohabitation”, they not only talk about the face of affection, they also refer economic ability is one of the reason, which is a new angle. However, the most interesting and strangest part is that they have the same data but lead to different opinion, which is really unexpected for the readers. It would make us start to wonder why, and lead us to the next annotation.
Emily and Claire’s topic, “Adultery pulls you out of the abyss of emptiness” is talking about should accepted the adultery for giving children a complete family or divorcing. This group had posed many examples, which is one and another story, which makes the reader easy to understand which part they stand, their view, and makes their articles more interesting. Most of their sources come from the library; they said they went to there and read the books one after another which are all having relation to their topic.
Niki and Phoebe’s topic,” Is it appropriate to use showgirl as a commercial strategy?”, investigate the common phenomenon now in Taiwan. Many girls wear a few clothes, shuttling in the exhibition, selling the products, and some guys took lots of photos of them. Their topic is easy to connect to our daily life because we all have seen this phenomenon before. However, there is a few problems that their arguments tends to one part when listening to their report.
