Editorial Reviews

Review

'At last, a book that gets to grips with the harm that porn does to women. It should be compulsory reading for anyone who still thinks porn can be defended. Meagan Tyler writes with sophistication, great clarity and originality. She has a depth of knowledge and understanding, and does not equivocate, but tells it like it is. She shows how two very powerful industries, pornography and sexology, combine to construct heterosexual practice in ways that do great damage to women s status and experience. This is the sort of magnificent scholarship that gives me confidence that a powerful new wave of feminism is underway!' --Sheila Jeffreys, Professor, School of Social and Political Sciences, University of Melbourne

'Selling Sex Short is a much needed intervention into the increasingly intellectually barren and ethically compromised realm of academic scholarship on pornography (and related issues). It should be required reading for anyone pursuing scholarship not only on pornography or sexology, but on virtually any aspect of sexuality in the contemporary West.' --Rebecca Whisnant, Director of Women s and Gender Studies at the University of Dayton
