  • Features essays on non-traditional issues in porn, including celebrity sex tapes, virtual sex, S&M, homosexual porn, and technology’s impact on the porn industry
  • Features fascinating insights from psychologists, a lawyer, and an English professor, as well as industry insiders such as Dylan Ryder
  • A fun, entertaining, and philosophically provocative approach to pornography, written for the general reader

From the Back Cover:

Love it or loathe it, pornography is as old as human civilization itself. Ancient humans were drawing porn on their cave walls long before it flourished under the Greeks and Romans. With the age of the Internet, it has now reached epic proportions. This anthology takes the ever-controversial discussion of pornography out of solely academic circles; it expands the questions about porn that academics might tackle and opens the conversation to those who know it best – the creators and users of porn. Together, they address issues such as:

  • Is a porn actor’s life “worse off” by virtue of his or her profession?
  • Why are men more willing to accept the authenticity of “porngasms”?
  • What is the voyeuristic appeal of watching celebrity sex tapes?
  • And, what is wrong with pornography?

Entertaining and scholarly, Porn – Philosophy for Everyone offers a titillating, tantalizing glimpse into the world of porn.
