Our culture tells us we aren't supposed to look at pornography — much less talk publicly about it. But the Internet has created unprecedented access to porn. Taking an objective view of popular interest in the subject, this book deals with it as a social issue, translating the best academic research into reader-friendly language. Author Debbie Nathan answers a number of questions, including: What, exactly, is pornography? How is it distributed? What effect has porn had on new technologies and how have these technologies changed it? Nathan describes in clear and cogent terms the arguments for and against pornography, as well as looking into who is making those arguments and why. She examines the porn industry and looks at what pornography is like when it’s made by women rather than men. The book considers why adults are so concerned with young people’s consumption of this product, and presents ideas for how the latter can take a critical approach to dealing with it. Ultimately, Pornography avoids the standard overemotional responses to present a dispassionate, productive look at a complex subject.
