From Library Journal:

This book presents a Marxist perspective in defense of pornography's "valuable aspects." Examining the capitalist/communist means of production, male "sexual powerlessness," and wealth as ownership versus "sensual `appropriation,' " the author reasons that if pornography did exist in an ideal communist society, it would not involve the degradation of women in either its production or content due to the nature of such a society. Since no such ideal Marxist society exists, it is impossible to assess the accuracy of the thesis. However, Sobles vision of both the human race and communist society seems overly optimistic, and stifling rather than creative, while his analysis of feminist opposition to pornography appears convoluted.
