Description - Pornland by Gail Dines
An unflinching and intimate look at porn - its hardcore and racist content, its unchecked profits - and how it distorts our identities. Professor Gail Dines has written about and researched the porn industry for over two decades. She attends industry conferences, interviews producers and performers, and speaks to hundreds of men and women each year about their experience with porn. Students and educators describe her work as 'life changing'. Astonishingly, the average age of first viewing porn is now 11.5 years for boys, and with the advent of the Internet, it's no surprise that young people are consuming more pornography than ever. But, as Dines shows in Pornland, today's pornography is strikingly different from yesterday's Playboy. As porn culture has become absorbed into pop culture, a new wave of entrepreneurs is creating porn that is ever more hardcore, violent, sexist, and racist.
