This review is from: Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality (Hardcover)
Finally a current feminist work that delivers what is promised: an actual feminist analysis of pornography as an institution, industry, and ideology historically rooted in the currents of the global capitalist order. Dines obviates such empty claims as "anti-porn is anti-sex" by showing the opposite, that any pro-sex movement must first target the industry that so many feminists seem to have fallen for.
The work directly incorporates the voices of both men women in the industry, and even the directors (which pro-porn people might be surprised to learn are very afraid of where the industry is heading regarding violence and extremity).
I recommend this book for those who have been directly affected by pornography use (including users and victims), radical feminists (to strengthen their critique), liberal feminists (to get them turned around in the right direction), and anyone else concerned with the direction that pornography is heading.
