Format: Hardcover
As a political scientist I am used to reading government reports but this one was quite an eye opener. I had heard many reference over the years of the 1980s Final Report to the Attorney General Commission on PORNOGRAPHY. It surfaced in the conservative Reagan era and I expected it to be a bash on sexual freedom.
The commission held hearings around the country and sought input from the public.
There are some interesting anecdotal views but what surprised me the most is how tamed it seems through the lenses of some twenty five years later.
With the internet, porn has become a mainstream or at least is not avoidable. This report has some dire prediction if there was not more regulation to this industry but here we still exist.
With all the descriptions and no photos in the end a concise definition is not declared. It does hit on a pro law enforcement route and the spinoff effects of allowing pornography to go wild.
This book does make for some interesting readings and makes you wonder with all that is going one in the world should this have taken time away from our law makers.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent expose of the explicit sex industry with very few errors (i.e. pgs. 341-384's Production and Distribution...chapter could've used proper noun "city" instead
of "area" and Los Angeles' Hollywood and Sunset Strip as the largest of its state's
"urban districts" featuring such businesses during the 1970s (when over 400 of them were proliferated).
