About this Book

This anthology takes the ever-controversial discussion of pornography out of solely academic circles; it expands the questions about porn that academics might tackle and opens the conversation to those who know it best-the creators and users of porn.

  • Features essays on non-traditional issues in porn, including celebrity sex tapes, virtual sex, S&M, homosexual porn, and technology's impact on the porn industry
  • Features fascinating insights from psychologists, a lawyer, and an English professor, as well as industry insiders such as Dylan Ryder
  • A fun, entertaining, and philosophically provocative approach to pornography, written for the general reader
