Porn. Do you think of it as a dirty word, a taboo topic, something you associate with cheesy films with bad plots? Filmmaker and author Erika Lust is here to change all that. With the goal of making porn more accessible to women, Good Porn examines the films, the industry, and the phenomenon. It breaks away from any assumptions you may have about porn, opening the door for a wholly new conversation about a medium that has too long been considered the domain of men. So come on in, ladies, the water's just fine. --
"Erika Lust shoots from the hip and pulls no punches in this straightforward, no nonsense guide that tells it like it is. Packed with good information and a healthy dose of humor, any man interested in making points with his woman should take a peek at Good Porn."---Candida Royalle, author, entrepreneur, feminist porn pioneer --
"In Good Porn, groundbreaking filmmaker Erika Lust is our tour guide into the world of pornography, taking us beyond sexist, boring cliches to the next generation of smart, women-focused movies. In the process, she tackles everything we think we know about female desire and fantasy."---Tristan Taormino, award-winning feminist pornographer and author --
"Lust debunks bad porn myths that have been making women scream for decades. I laughed out loud, and then cried when I realized how important and serious this stuff really is. If you want to truly understand what women want in porn and in bed, look no further. If you only read one book on porn ever, read this book."---Jamye Waxman, author of Getting Off: A Woman's Guide to Masturbation --Book Jacket.
