    DescriptionPorn is everywhere - a multi-billion dollar force that flows from the smallest peep show booth to the biggest convention hall. Porn is good. Porn is right. And now more than ever, porn is pervasive, John Holmes and Linda Lovelece, once matinee idols of sticky-floored nickelodeons, now have their life stories told on the screens of "respectable" multiplexes. Porn superstar Jenna Jameson has her own action figure. Porn star Mary Carey received more than 10,000 votes in the California recall election. What's the most profitable sector of the internet? You guessed it. Now the phenomenon is heading toward a bookstore near you. Think of this book as Porn 101: a friendly, funny, illustrated celebration of adult films, without all the messy hardcore stuff. You'll find sections on: THE CLASSICS: The 25 most important adult films of all time, including Debble Does Deltas, Deep Throat, Behind the Groon Door, and Toboo. GREAT MOMENTS IN PORN HISTORY: From the first silent "stag" movie of the 1920s to the invention of the silicone breast implant, here are 25 events that defined modern-day adult films. THE PANTHEON OF PORN: These mini-bios of mega-stars like Seka, Linda Lovelace, and Marilyn Chambers are filled with surprising trivia. (Example: Italian porn star Cicciolina was actually elected to her country's parliament - then went back to the porn business after her term ended!) WHAT TO WATCH, WHERE TO WATCH IT: Who invented those 25-cent peep show booths? Where have all the Great Porn Theatres gone? And what the hell happened to Times Square? Plus: A primer on various porn genres, including "ATM," "Little People," "Pony Play," and "Smoking." IT'S A PORN WORLD, AFTER ALL: Talk about export-friendly! We travel around the world - from Canada and Japan to Afghanistan - to watch the best of international porn. MAKE YOUR OWN PORNO: All you need is a video camera, a willing partner, and these simple pointers ("Toll a story," "Start with a Bang," "Parody a Real Film Title Whenever Possible"). PLUS tons of great art, kitschy stills, a glossary of unfamiliar terms, and the 300 strangest porn titles of all time (including Intercourse with a Vampire. An Officer and a Genitalman, The Loin King, and Edward Penishands).
