In Pornland-the culmination of her life’s work-Dines takes an unflinching look at porn and its affect on our lives.

She attends industry conferences, interviews producers and performers, and speaks to hundreds of men and women each year about their experience with porn. Students and educators describe her work as life changing. In Pornland-the culmination of her life’s work-Dines takes an unflinching look at porn and its affect on our lives

The Book, in Her Words. Porn has existed throughout human history, and while the Internet has exploded the form, it remains unclear that eliminating porn would make society a friendlier one to women.

The Book, in Her Words. Porn is not something that stands outside of us: it is deeply embedded in our structures, identities, and relationships. This did not happen overnight, and there is a story to tell about how we got to the point that mainstream Internet porn has become so hateful and cruel" (xxix). It's also unclear if porn is the symptom or the disease: if women were treated more equitably by employers and educators, would men be less amenable to women being depicted as harshly used sex objects?

As pornography has become both more extreme and more commercial, antiporn activist Dines argues, it has dehumanized our sexual relationships. The radical objectification and often brutal denigration of women in porn, she holds, leaks into other aspects of our lives. This was a great book. I was particulalry interested in the chapter on racism in pornography. I am glad she included this tidbit because it is not discussed in main stream enough.

Proving that porn desensitizes and actually limits our sexual freedom, Dines argues its omnipresence is a public health . Pornland takes a quantum leap beyond the tired pro-porn vs. anti-porn debates of recent decades.

Proving that porn desensitizes and actually limits our sexual freedom, Dines argues its omnipresence is a public health concern we can no longer ignore. It will now be the starting point for serious discussions about how porn shapes and distorts social and sexual norms. Gail Dines understands both the economics and cultural power of the pornography industry perhaps better than anyone ever has.

As porn culture has become absorbed into pop culture, a new wave of entrepreneurs are creating porn that is even more hard-core, violent, sexist, and racist. Finally, a section at the back of the book has space for additional notes, useful numbers and contact details and a pocket on the inside back cover will take receipts, fabric swatches etc.

Our Sexual Future With Robots Final. How Vimax Pills Help on Your Sexual Activities. It is the ubiquitousness of pornography that Gail Dines has focussed on in her book, Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality. In Pornland, Dines examines how pornography has saturated our lives to such an extent that it appears to be a normal part of our modern popular culture. Dines analyses how this desensitises us to pornography, thus legitimising it as an acceptable part of popular culture. Dines outlines how pornography has infiltrated popular culture in the preface to her book: Senior Lecturer in Law, Murdoch University, Western Australia.

This book is a powerful look at the intersection of pornography and gendered violence. After reading the text I facilitated a discussion on pornography with a group of fraternity men and I was really pleased with the conversation we had. Dines is clearly a strong source of expertise in the issues related to violence in pornography.

I purchased and read this book with optimism. I have grown up with porn addiction growing up as a teenager from low self esteem and social awkwardness. I'm not the typical savage male who attacks feminists online.. I actually side with feminists almost all the time on political and health points. My issue with this book is that I don't believe in the author who wrote it. It also is a very repetitive piece of writing. You can save yourself money by going online and watching Gail's lectures.

Gail is painting a narrative that men who watch porn are terrible and violent people. While I'm not denying the reality of the majority of men acting like misogynists pigs.. There is no objective proof that porn is the sole catalyst of the problem. There are people out there with porn addiction who are morally strong people. She also doesn't touch upon women who might enjoy porn or feminists in the porn industry.. I know that'a controversial statement.. But she doesn't mention how women like Candida Royalle and Nina Hartley have proved sex positive feminism works, whereas anti-porn feminists are still riding Andrea Dworkin's illogical ramblings.. Dines being inspired by Dworkin, a woman who admitted in her own books to having porn and sexual addiction issues well before adulthood.

I'm not advocating addiction porn addiction at all.. But has porn hijacked sexuality? The answer is no.

This was a great book. It opened my eyes about how commercialized the porn industry is. Dines does a great job of demonstrating the violence that is endemic in porn and also does a great job of demonstrating how this is impacting society. I was particulalry interested in the chapter on racism in pornography. I am glad she included this tidbit because it is not discussed in main stream enough.

I would say that people should at the very least give this a try to see if they can really keep watching porn after reading about it like this.

Great book packed full of information

This is a very interesting book that looks at the effects of pornography on the human psyche and the consequential social collective. Taking into consideration the appallingly graphic violence of the modern version of pornography, it’s no surprise that the population and more specifically the younger generations are suffering mental and emotional trauma. The toxic memes from these videos are encouraged into our social space, the moral fibre of our culture is now eroded away quite blatantly.

The purpose of this attack on human consciousness is considered by the writer to be profit-based. However, I think the question of why is up to the reader to ask and come to his/her own conclusions.

I think anyone who either opposes or supports the production and commercialisation of pornography should read this book.

Excellent analysis of the field.

One line still resonates "Do you want capitalist to determine your sexuality?"
It would be difficult to say that one LOVES this book, so I didn't give it a 5-star rating. The word "disturbing" comes to mind. I purchased this book because I heard Gail Dines speak on the radio and because I work with domestic violence offenders, many of whom admit that pornography is a strong influence in their lives. I haven't finished PORNLAND yet as I must read it only a little at a time -- there is too much horror to digest in anything but small bits -- but I intend to. The pages are filled with valuable information, ugly as it may be. Perhaps I'll continue this review after completing the book.
