Few mediums reveal the White sexual imperialistic exploitation of Asian women more so than pornography. In a 2002 study conducted by Jennifer Lynn Gossett and Sarah Byrne, out of thirty-one pornographic websites that depicted rape or torture of women, more than half showed Asian women as the rape victim and one-third showed White men as the perpetrator. The study further uncovered a strong correlation between race and pedophilia, advertising with titles such as “Japanese Schoolgirls” or “Asian Teens.” Furthermore, images of Asian women in pornographic forms consistently came up through a keyword search for “torture.” Many scholars warn that race-specific pornography contributes to race specific sexual violence. Since the overwhelming majority of violent pornography features Asian women in particular, it follows that Asian women are at even greater risk of sexual violence due to their role in violent pornography.
Pornography leads to other alarming sexual-racial trends involving Asian women as well. For example, depictions of Filipinas as sexual commodities on the Internet have been linked to the mail-order bride industry in Australia. Researchers further speculate that online sexual commodification of Filipinas may at least partially explain why Filipinas experience disproportionate levels of domestic violence compared to non-Filipina women.
White men’s fascination with Asian women in pornography stems from early nineteenth century Western imperialism. To colonize the Asian nations, countries such as the United States flooded Asia with military forces. As an inevitable result of military presence, prostitution centers consisting of local civilian women sprung up to cater to the White servicemen. With these sexual experiences as their main, if not only, encounters with Asian women, White servicemen returned home with the generalization that Asian women are hypersexualized and always willing to comply with White man’s prurient demands. This germinated even more interest in Asian women as sexual objects. To sustain this increased interest, the Asian sex tour industry developed. Asian sex tourism further perpetuates the stereotype of Asian women as hypersexualized and always willing. If Asian women are perceived as hyper-sexual, it understandably follows that sexually explicit materials, pornography for example, would include a preponderance of Asian women.

According to Fredrickson and Roberts (1997), the cultural practice of sexual objectification leads to self-objectification, which turns into self-surveillance, causing psychological consequences and mental health risks in victims. Sexual objectification means that women are widely seen as sex objects for male sexual pleasure. This objectification occurs in two areas: (1) interpersonal or social encounters, and (2) media exposure. “Interpersonal or social encounters include catcalls, checking out/ staring at, or gazing at women’s bodies, sexual comments, and harassment. Media exposure spotlights women’s bodies and body parts while depicting women as the target of a non-reciprocated male gaze” (Calogero, Tantleff-Dunn, & Thompson, 2011, p. 6). …
Growing up, women are socialized to act and respond to situations in certain ways, defined by gender roles. These roles help shape a woman’s characteristics so she can be accepted as “normal” by the society in which she lives. Women are then socialized to accept the less invasive forms of sexualization as normal and perhaps even desirable, indicators that they are fulfilling expected social norms (Smolak and Murnen, 2011). According to MacKinnon (1989), “Men have been conditioned to find women’s subordination sexy, and women have been conditioned to find a particular male version of female sexuality as erotic — one in which they are defined from a male point of view” (p. 140). Being defined from a male point of view can lead to consequences that lead to self-objectification.
Female self-objectification has many consequences, including eating disorders, which are associated with depression. According to National Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (2013), up to 24 million people of all ages and genders suffer from an eating disorder. … data show that 47% of girls in the 5th-12th grade report wanting to lose weight because they compare themselves to idealized magazine photographs, and 69% of girls in the 5th-12th grade report that such images influence their idea of a “perfect” body shape (Eating, 2013). …
Self-Objectification refers to the process by which women come to internalize and accept the beliefs that society projects upon them. Fredrickson and Roberts (1997) suggest that to some degree girls and women come to view themselves as sexual objects, leading them to “form a self-consciousness characterized by habitual monitoring of the body’s outward appearance” (p.180). Fredrick and Roberts write that “as many girls and women internalize the culture’s practices of objectification and habitually monitor their bodies’ appearance … a disruption in the flow of consciousness permeates a host of emotional, motivational and attentional states” (p. 196).
Franzoi (1995) writes that “there are two basic ways of thinking about one’s body that have a particular relevance to a discussion of gender differences in body esteem. One way is to view the body as an object of discrete parts that others aesthetically evaluate, and the other is to conceptualize it as a dynamic process where function is of greater consequence” (Franzoi, 1995, p. 417). The vast majority of people tend to view the female body in terms of its form, rather than function, and “it is this aspect of the physical self that influences people’s first impressions and forms the basis for the physical attractiveness stereotype” (Franzoi, 1995, p. 417).
