Irvine Welsh Interview

| No Comments

Interview with Irvine Welsh, who has a new book (Porno) coming out soon:

From his perspective, the onset of DIY porn is neither a good nor a bad thing. Maybe, like swearwords, it is merely a way of defusing something intrinsically frightening, shedding a garish light on the shadows and taboos of sex. "When we break taboos," he says, "it doesn't mean we also break moral codes. Unless they're psychotic, people know the difference between right and wrong, good and bad. Nobody's born wanting to rape and kill. People have a basic morality that comes from their humanity. We have to institutionalise some kind of moral framework only so we can all live within the same one. Nothing wrong with that."
