Pornified: How the Culture of Pornography Is Changing Our Lives, Our Relationships and Our Families
Pamela Paul
0805077456
September 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Having already carved out a major niche among 20-to-30-somethings with The Starter Marriage, Paul takes on another bane of postfeminism: the Internet-enabled "all pornography, all the time" mentality of many younger men and its ripple effect on the culture. For this pornograph, Paul interviewed more than 100 people—80 of them young, straight men. Some findings are predictable: porn allows men "to enjoy the fantasy of endless variety," but can distract men from their partners, detract from their sexual skills and harm relationships. More valuably, Paul finds women caught under new forms of social pressure—from men and women—not to disdain porn: to do so, now, is (among other things) to be seen as limiting women's sexual self-expression. Paul also sees porn seeping ever sooner into preteen life...

The Skinner Box Effect: Sexual Addiction and Online Pornography
Tom M. Grundner
0595093248
April 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Description

These are the facts: 1. Among the millions of people on the Internet there exists a signifigant percentage for whom online pornography is not, and never will be, a "recreational pursuit." Rather it is, or soon will become an addiction. 2. Researchers and clinicians have established that pornography addiction contains all the characteristics of any other kind of addiction: mood altercation, compulsion, dependency, the need for higher and more exotic "doses" and withdrawl symptoms when the person tries to stop. 3. Because of the "Skinner Box Effect," pornography on the Internet is different and far more virulent than the customary forms. The reason is because it derives its potency from both the content of what is seen, AND from the way it is presented to the user by the technology itself.

For those...



I Surrender All: Rebuilding a Marriage Broken by Pornography
Clay Crosse
1576837327
September 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Contemporary Christian singer Clay Crosse shares his journey as a performer whose 1994 number-one hit, "I Surrender All," captured the attention of the Christian music scene as he secretly battled a consuming addiction to pornography. Crosse tells how a mysterious throat ailment stopped him cold, causing his financial world to tip precariously, and bringing the realization that the road he was traveling was surely going to end in the demise of his marriage, crushing both his faith and his career. Telling his sobering story, Crosse takes turns with wife, Renee, as they candidly reveal the desperate condition to which their spiritual and marital lives had deteriorated before Crosse acknowledged his addiction. After he confessed that he would have had sex with any woman who offered, Crosse and his wife started a...


Prisoner of X : 20 Years in the Hole at Hustler Magazine
Allan MacDonell
1932595139
May 1, 2006
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Allan MacDonell's account of his twenty years spent working for Larry Flynt is prime Feral House material: blunt, salacious and to-the-point. Opening with MacDonnel's curtain call, the nervous and barbed attack he delivered at Flynt's roast, MacDonell recounts his tenure working for one of America's most notorious citizens with candor and a biting wit. As a young punk rocker with a knack for writing but without a high school diploma, MacDonell managed to land an entry-level job in the editorial department of Hustler. Working in an environment that embodied the hedonism of the 1980s, MacDonell managed to excel in an office staffed by nepotistic hires, degenerates and the occasional competent worker, all nervously toiling under the moody shadow of Flynt. From bit parts in pornos to soliciting evidence of...


Secrets of a Gay Marine Porn Star
Rich Merritt
0758209681
June 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
During the height of Clinton's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, Merritt led two secret lives. Marines serving under him didn't realize their captain was a closeted gay man, and his small group of gay friends didn't know he made gay porn films while enlisted. In this hefty if meandering tell-all, Merritt charts his struggle to repress his sexuality while living amongst the members of his ultra-conservative family and attending "the Fortress of Fundamentalism": Bob Jones University. He'd never even masturbated prior to his first sexual experience in his mid-20s. That first encounter-with another man-ends with a knife being held to the throat of a woman who saw the two together. Being a Marine seems to appeal both to Merritt's narcissism and to his extreme low self-esteem. A self-avowed "adrenaline junkie" and drama...


How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale
Jenna Jameson, Neil Strauss
0060539097
September 1, 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
With its wit (the book is dedicated to Onan), its victim narrative (multiple sexual assaults), its celebrity dish (Howard Stern is actually well endowed), and its frank, one-fisted prose style ("After three hours of sweaty, psychotic sex, she handed me a huge black strap-on"), the queen of porn's autobiography is destined to become a lowbrow classic. Jameson's career began at 16, when she fell for Jack, a tattoo artist. At a party, Jack's neo-Nazi uncle raped Jameson. Unable to face her father, a Las Vegas cop, she moved in with Jack. Within a year, she went from high school cheerleader to stripper to nude model to porn actress, with a stop along the way to become a crack addict. Jameson's life wasn't so much a downward spiral as a freefall into darkness. But, as the porn world would have it, the harder she fell,...


History of Men's Magazines
Dian Hanson
3822829765
June 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Open your notebooks, sharpen your pencils, and get ready for a history lesson like none you’ve ever experienced. Yes, that’s right: you’re about to learn everything you could ever want to know about the world history of men’s magazines—not sports, not fashion, not hunting or fishing or how to build a birdhouse in ten easy steps, but those titillating periodicals embracing the subject dearest to all heterosexual men’s hearts and other organs: the undraped female form. A twenty-five-year veteran of the genre, former men’s magazine editor Dian Hanson traces its development from 1900 to 1980 in six massive and informative volumes. Volume I explores the period from 1900, when sexy magazines first started to appear in France and Germany, through the decades of subterfuge and censorship up...


Pornography, Vol. 5
Daniel Linz
0803944810
March 1993
Textbook Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Pornography has fascinated and divided researchers, policymakers, and the public for years. Does it have harmful effects on individuals? What effects in particular? Does pornography influence everyone or just some people? How should society deal with the results of this influence? In Pornography, Linz and Malamuth sort through these and other questions by placing their topic within the broader context of fundamental human nature theories. Their approach reveals a systematic interweaving of social science, morality, and law through three different perspectives: conservative-moralistic, liberal, and feminist. The fifth volume in the innovative Communication Concepts series, this book is an invaluable addition to current research on pornography and obscenity. Students and professionals in communication studies as well as...


The Big Book of Porn
Seth Grahame-Smith
1594740402
Nov 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
More loving than smutty, this riff on the glory of dirty movies has more double entendres than an X-rated film, but charms with its sincerity. Firsttime author Grahame-Smith first gives a chronology of the porn industry, mentioning nude photography of the early 1900s before going into the Hays Code film regulations of 1930, and then into porn's heyday in the 1970s. Once the history lesson is complete, the author veers into extensive lists of his favorite "classic" films, which he categorizes as featuring actors and actresses without tattoos, but with plenty of body hair. He rhapsodizes about the luscious quality of porn stars from the Debbie Does Dallas era, but gives the current crop of vixens their due, especially those clever enough to parlay their profession into mini-empires of sex toys and Web sites. Also...

Beyond Tolerance: Child Pornography Online
Philip Jenkins
0814742629
August 2001
Textbook Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
oliticians, media and law enforcement have "massively over-responded" to "quite innocuous" adult sexual material on the Internet, argues historian Jenkins, while doing far too little to stamp out pernicious and prevalent child porn, such as pictures of four- and five-year-old girls sexually servicing men. Even anti-porn activists who target specific pedophilic Web sites are wrongheaded; the problem is international, Jenkins charges in this important wake-up call, with pictures posted on short-lived sites known only to a computer-savvy subculture that sidesteps the strictures of countries that condemn the material. Thus, while Jenkins (Synthetic Panics) has spent his career arguing that social menaces (e.g., serial killers) are overblown, here he aims to increase public concern. Given that simply looking at child...


Reefer Madness: Sex, Drugs, and Cheap Labor in the American Black Market
Eric Schlosser
0618446702
April 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
As much as 10% of the American economy, and perhaps more, is comprised of illegal "underground" enterprises, according to author and Atlantic Monthly correspondent Eric Schlosser. And while this segment is never discussed in the newspaper business pages, Schlosser tackles it with the same in-depth analysis and compulsive readability that made his Fast Food Nation a best seller. Reefer Madness spotlights marijuana, migrant labor, and pornography, three of the most thriving black market industries, and analyzes the often-tenuous place each holds in society as a whole. While each of the three could be the subject of its own book, Schlosser keeps his scope narrow by concentrating on the lives of the participants in the underground economy, especially Mark Young, an Indiana man given a life sentence for participating in a...

When Sex Was Dirty
Josh Alan Friedman
1932595074
Oct 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In 1986, Friedman published Tales of Times Square, the grittiest, most perceptive look yet at the Deuce when it was run by desperadoes, not Disney. This grab bag of essays, some reprinted (from Hustler, Screw, etc.), some new, shares much with Friedman's earlier book, notably an emphasis on sleaze (and on the humanity of those who traffic in it), but it lacks the earlier book's cohesion and shock value. Four of the older entries, grouped as "Times Square Sketches," read like outtakes from Tales; best is Friedman's brief, haunting portrait of stripper Maria Krupa, daughter of jazz drummer Gene, who died of a heroin overdose. Some of the other older entries, though written with pizzazz, are dated, for instance "An Iceberg Slim Appreciation," written 10 years ago but about an author who's been celebrated for...

Dangerous Relationships : Pornography, Misogyny and Rape
Diana E.H. Russell
0761905251
May 14, 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Diana E. H. Russell, well-known for her pioneer research on the prevalence of rape and child sexual abuse, the reality of wife rape, the trauma of incestuous abuse, and the misogynist killing of women (femicide), breaks new ground once again in her analysis of pornography and its relationship with misogyny and rape. In this unflinching and uncompromising volume, Diana E. H. Russell examines the relationships between pornography, misogyny, and rape. As the title implies, Russell contends that these relationships are in fact dangerous to women. Dangerous Relationships begins by dealing with the vexing and thorny issue of defining pornography and considers the various types of pornographic materials that are commonly available. Russell turns to the notion that hatred of women is a predominate aspect of pornography and...

Dirty Little Secret: Uncovering the Truth behind Porn
Craig Gross
031027107X
May 2006
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Addiction to pornography has exploded to epidemic proportions, infiltrating churches and holding our pastors, friends, and family members prisoner. But no one—not even the church—is talking about this dangerous and destructive addiction.



The Dirty Little Secret follows Pastor Craig Gross as he breaks the silence and begins his ministry XXXchurch.com, a website devoted to fighting pornography. As he meets people in the industry and those addicted to porn, Craig exposes the very real, human face of pornography and the destructive physical, emotional, and spiritual toll it takes. The Dirty Little Secret plainly reveals the addictive lure of pornography, explores the pain and brokenness it causes, and challenges us as individuals and as the church to talk about and openly fight pornography....


My Undoing : Love in the Thick of Sex, Drugs, Pornography, and Prostitution
Aiden Shaw
0786717432
May 28, 2006
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
For the first time, porn legend Aiden Shaw takes fans behind-the-scenes to the gay adult film world that made him a star. My Undoing ventures from locales such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and London, to the sets of premiere studios like Falcon, Catalina, and Studio 200.

Yet, this is not the typical adult film memoir, where stars drop names and titillate readers with explicit moments. Although My Undoing shares in unsparing detail all the hot stories about the sex and drugs that fueled Aiden's life, it more profoundly follows him through a course of rocky and unfulfilling relationships. As Aiden eloquently and often humorously points out, the romantic life of an adult film superstar is sometimes lonely and lacking in love. But not love only in the form of a relationship, rather also...


Skin City
Jack Sheehan
0060838795

Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Sheehan (Above Las Vegas) migrated to "Skin City" in 1976 in pursuit of "adult fun," and asserts that Vegas is where America goes to be legally licentious. Yet despite sweet little dice imprints throughout this work, the only gambling he describes is the gambling men (and sometimes women) do with their bank accounts: Vegas's nubile beauties don't come cheap. An hour in a strip club's VIP room costs no less than $400; a hotel room "escort" starts at $500 and ranges upward. In chapters that read like snappy magazine pieces, Sheehan tours the Strip as well as the strip clubs, swingers clubs, massage parlors and porn conventions. He interviews porn stars turned soccer moms, soccer moms turned dominatrixes and young couples funding their futures with for-profit swinging sessions. Interpolated throughout are tips for...
