Porn Panic!

Porn Panic!

Sex and Censorship in the UK

The Rise of the New British Anti-Sex Movement.


CATEGORIZED IN

Porn Panic! charts the rise of a new social conservatism for the new millennium, coinciding with the collapse of liberalism as a political force. Unlike the old morality movements, this one is focused on the left of politics. Using the language of the old, liberal left - especially the feminist movement - the new conservatives have set out to rein in pornography, other sexual expression, and free speech in general.

REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

What an informative read! It gives a very comprehensive summary of the evolution of porn from print to online, and how (British) society has reacted to the changes. I especially enjoyed the author's personal insights and quips. Him having gone through the "porn revolution" first hand gives it an air of credibility and it is peppered with personal anecdotes, which makes for a fun read. Of course, the author is absolutely biased towards porn. (In fact, the whole point of the book is to convince us that there is too much fuss being made about porn, and that the fuss has been far more detrimental than porn itself.) However, one can't help but nod along and agree as the points made are valid, and the author presents the facts as they are (with solid references too), without resorting to overly obtuse language or complex reasoning meant to befuddle the reader. Pick up this book if you are 1. confused about feminism, or if you identify as a feminist 2. curious about why anyone would write a book defending porn 3. interested in politics and censorship 4. intrigued by the eye-catching cover on this book (as I was!) ~ J. Lee, GoodReads

Great window into the society of GB in the last decades, it is well written and with a lot of humor combined, it makes for an interesting read and yes lets face it...we humans all enjoy a little voyeurism too....after all it is an x-rated subject and god knows the general human reaction to the word porn always makes for so many memorable hilarious moments! I learned some....laughed a lot and will be recommending this one to friends for sure! (at least to some of my friends...lol...). ~ Philippa Song, NetGalley

Porn Panic! documents new and rising threats to free expression, and mounts a fierce and entertaining defence. ~ Nadine Strossen, Professor of Law, New York Law School and former ACLU President
