Pornography Feminism: As Powerful as She Wants to Be

Pornography Feminism: As Powerful as She Wants to Be

Pornography feminists unshackle their desires and celebrate their sexuality in the patriarchal world of filmed sex.


CATEGORIZED IN

During the sex wars of the 1980s, sex-positive feminism entered the adult film industry with a performer support group known as Club 90. Over the next three decades feminism found a home among an influential group of women in pornography.
Pornography Feminism: As Powerful as She Wants to Be is a popular history of this unfolding saga told largely through personal interviews along with scholarly works, previous popular histories, and film reviews.

REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

Rich Moreland has created a rich and comprehensive study of “pornography feminism” in a style that is accessible to students, academics and laypersons alike. I’m impressed with the depth of material Moreland covers and his willingness not only to take on a subject steeped in controversy and challenge both his own long-held views as well as those of the community at large; but having done so, to come out on the side of the less-popular stance – and have the courage to say so! Bravo Professor Moreland! ~ Candida Royalle, D.H.S., Author, Erotic Filmmaker & Entrepreneur
