“We’re now so pornography saturated that our capacity for sexual delight is being brutalized. Gail Dines brilliantly exposes porn’s economics, pervasiveness, and impact with scholarship as impeccable as her tone is reasonable. This book will change your life. Ignore it at your peril.”
—Robin Morgan

“Bravo to Gail Dines!  She exposes a huge problem of our time that few people are willing to confront.  Dines follows the extensive money trail, uncovering the role of corporate duplicity and greed, while showing how steadily pornography has infiltrated into everyday life from almost cradle to grave, harming children, youth, women, and men. Pornland will arm readers with the information, understanding, and outrage they need to take on the perpetrators of this assault on humanity.”
—Diane Levin, coauthor of So Sexy, So Soon

“This is, without question, the definitive book on pornography and pop culture in the twenty-first century.”
—Robert Jensen, author of Getting Off: Pornography and the End of Masculinity

Pornland takes a quantum leap beyond the tired pro-porn vs. anti-porn debates of recent decades.  From now on, it will 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. This is accessible and grounded social analysis and commentary at its finest.”
—Jackson Katz, Ph.D., creator of the video Tough Guise and author of The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help

“An eyes-wide-open-look at the way the porn industry exploits and damages the gift of our sexuality to fuel itself. Pornland is well-researched, well-written, and heartfelt. I highly recommend it.”
—Wendy Maltz, L.C.S.W., D.S.T., coauthor of The Porn Trap: The Essential Guide to Overcoming Problems Caused by Pornography

Pornland is a must read for anyone who is concerned or puzzled about our ever intensifying pornographic culture. From the intricate linking of the porn industry with Fortune 500 companies to behind the scenes of Girls Gone Wild, young men’s confessions of being turned off by natural female bodies, and much more, Dines makes eye-opening connections and breaks new ground with every chapter. Thoroughly researched and forcefully argued, this phenomenal book pulls you in with a unique blend of humor, fierce intellect, and compassion for humanity.”
—Chyng Sun, associate professor of media studies at New York University and director of The Price of Pleasure: Pornography, Sexuality, and Relationships
