Product description

True or false: andbull; Most porn users are uneducated, lonely and sad old men andbull; All porn is violent andbull; Pornography turns people into rapists and/or paedophiles andbull; Pornography uniformly portrays women as passive objects of men's sexual urges The Porn Report debunks these and many other misconceptions about porn consumers, producers and the industry at large. In the first comprehensive examination of the production and consumption of pornography in Australia, Alan McKee, Kath Albury and Catharine Lumby present a wide-ranging view of the adult-content industries and its consumers. If you've ever wondered what's in Australia's bestselling 50 porn videos and DVDs; what's behind amateur or do-it-yourself porn; and how porn is produced and distributed, The Porn Report will not only answer your questions, but also surprise you. The authors also discuss feminist responses to pornography and provide important advice to parents on how they can protect their children from cyberstalkers and from viewing online porn. If pornography arouses, repels or simply piques your curiosity, you cannot afford to miss The Porn Report.
