PORNLAND: How the Porn Industry Has Hijacked Our Sexuality
Pornography has moved from the margins of society into the very mainstream of American culture. From Internet pornography to MTV, pop culture industries bombard us with sexualized images of idealized women and men that jump off the screen and into our lives, shaping our gender identities, our body image, and especially our intimate relationships. In this multimedia presentation based on her acclaimed book, leading anti-porn feminist and scholar Gail Dines argues that the dominant images and stories disseminated by the multibillion-dollar pornography industry produce and reproduce a gender system that undermines equality and encourages violence against women. In direct opposition to claims that porn has delivered a more liberated, edgy sexuality, Dines reveals a mass-produced vision of sex that is profoundly sexist and destructive - a vision that limits our ability to create authentic, equal relationships free of violence and degradation. An ideal introduction to the core arguments of the feminist anti-pornography movement.

"Gail Dines presents one of the most intelligent, best-researched analyses of the frighteningly vast and violent industry of pornography that I have ever seen or read. Her impassioned treatment of the subject is matched by her intelligence, scholarship and clarity."
