The Feminist Porn Boo k brings together producers, actors, consumers, and scholars of feminist pornography. Addressing the fraught history of pornography, the rise of the anti-porn movement, and the ubiquity of porn in society, this comprehensive collection identifies the importance of porn made for and by feminists. That the choices, experiences, and consequences of women's sexual lives became fodder for such poorly informed national 'conversations' is evidence of the pressing need for thoughtful, sex-positive scholarship which centers on women's sexual agency.
The Feminist Porn Book is just such a contribution, and I predict this volume is going to find its way onto the bedside tables of several generations of American women. This volume brings together academics, activists, and porn entrepreneurs who have a startling array of interactions with pornography as an experience, a business, and a field of inquiry. This text is straightforward and informative in ways that are unfortunately rare in the multi-decade feminist struggle over porn. It's also fun and sometimes a bit naughty to read. The authors do not assume that the porn industry as it exists is the one essential and only possible incarnation of porn.
Instead, they assume that when feminists engage, intervene in, produce, and study pornography, they can radically alter its formations and meanings. At the core of the book is the question: Can porn coexist with the principles of feminism? No matter how one ultimately adjudicates this question, Young poirn Feminist Porn Book leaves no doubt about the inherent value in the inquiry itself. This stunning collection by academics and artists in dialogue s for the massive changes in technology, erotics, young poirn of spectatorship, and embodied identities which impact the world of pornography.
As this volume demonstrates, we are now far from the sex wars of the s, the sex panics of the s, and well into a new era of erotic representation. In order to make sense of new and emergent worlds of desiring bodies, trans-femininities and trans-masculinities, transgressive racial performance, and the erotics of disabled bodies, read The Feminist Porn Bookand when you are finished, go out and make some porn!
