The unprecedented mainstreaming of the global pornography industry is transforming the sexual politics of intimate and public life, popularizing new forms of hardcore misogyny, and strongly contributing to the sexualization of children. Yet, challenges to the industry continue to be dismissed as uncool, antisex, and moral panic. Unmasking the lies behind the selling of porn as entertainment, this book reveals the shocking truths of an industry that trades in violence, crime, and degradation while discussing topics such as racism in gay male porn, the use of animals in porn, child pornography, and BDSM (bondage, dominance, sadism, and masochism). Fearless and controversial, this examination will challenge the current view of pornography.

Review:

"This powerful and humane book is a breakthrough. Like Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, which launched the environmental movement, Big Porn Inc shows us we are poisoning our own spirits, and that an ugly misuse of thousands of women—and very young children—is the dark and criminal underside of this industry.”  —Steve Biddulph, author, Raising Boys and The Secret of Happy Children

“At a time when so many celebrities, academics, and free speech fundamentalists are siding with the sex industry to deny that pornography is violence against women, Big Porn Inc is the voice of reality—a strong indictment; an epic work.”  Janice G. Raymond, former co-director, The International Coalition Against Trafficking in Women

Big Porn Inc is a first-rate book: comprehensive and thoroughly researched . . . . Fortunately, this anthology considers the possibilities of resistance and offers hope for transformative futures.”  —Richard Poulin, professor of sociology, the University of Ottawa

“If you care about social justice, buy this book. Big Porn Inc is a must read for anyone interested in the human rights of women and children. The book is cogent and alarming, yet hopeful that together we can create a world where women and children are not hurt and degraded. Big Porn Inc is a much needed blueprint for ending the global porn industry.”  —Christine Stark, author, Nickels

“When anthropologists from Planet Upsilon report on how civilization failed, Big Porn Inc will probably be Exhibit One. I thank the authors for the courage it took to wade through this material and put together this awesome book that drags us kicking and screaming to what so many do not want to know about corporate sex.”  —Martin Dufresne, anti-sexism activist

Big Porn Inc is a clarion call to action against this gross violation of women’s human rights. Brilliant, insightful, essential.”  —Kathleen Sloan, board of directors, National Organization for Women

Big Porn Inc offers clear and topical chapters from a range of thinkers who are uniquely well-equipped to explain why. This is a profoundly important book.”  —Emma Rush, lead author, Corporate Paedophilia: Sexualization of Children in Australia

Big Porn Inc is a hugely necessary, radical and rousing work, full of big thoughts and big truths about the all-consuming pornographic worldview.”  —Jane Caputi, creator, The Pornography of Everyday Life DVD
