Good Porn: A Woman's Guide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Despite its prevalence in the world today, many women are still afraid of porn--unsure of what exactly it is, what constitutes "good" porn, and why it should matter to them. In "Good Porn, " industry expert Erika Lust examines the films, the business, and the phenomenon of the porn genre, disproving the assumption that it is for men only and examining the role of women within the world of porn--from female directors to the stars themselves. Lust debunks the myth that one can't like porn and still be a feminist, offers insight on the educational and erotic value of porn, and expounds upon the benefits of porn in heightening women's sexual appetites. The result is a woman's comprehensive guide to porn: what it is, what types are available, and why men and women enjoy different styles. Sharp and honest, "Good Porn" rejects the idea that porn has to be a dirty word or taboo topic--making it more accessible to women, and opening a new discourse on sexuality and relationships.


Synopsis:

Porn. Do you think of it as a dirty word, a taboo topic, something you associate with cheesy films with bad plots? Filmmaker and author Erika Lust is here to change all that. With the goal of making porn more accessible to women, Good Porn examines the films, the industry, and the phenomenon. It breaks away from any assumptions you may have about porn, opening the door for a wholly new conversation about a medium that has too long been considered the domain of men. Come on in, ladies . . . the waters just fine.
