Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality
Gail Dines

                                           Now a documentary film!

Pornland
takes an unflinching look at pornography and its effect on our lives, showing that today's pornography is strikingly different from yesterday's Playboy. As porn culture has become absorbed into pop culture, a new wave of entrepreneurs are creating porn that is ever more hard-core, violent, sexist, and racist. 

Professor Gail Dines has written about and researched the porn industry for over two decades. She attends industry conferences, interviews producers and performers, and speaks to hundreds of men and women each year about their experience with porn. Students and educators describe her work as "life changing."

In Pornland Dines looks at pornography and its effect on our lives. Astonishingly, the average age of first viewing porn is now eleven and a half years for boys, and with the advent of the Internet, it's no surprise that young people are consuming more pornography than ever.

...a measured, persuasive case...

Fiona Capp, The Age

Pornland is well researched, matter-of-fact and shocking!

Penny Mulvey, The Melbourne Anglican

Gail Dines draws on years of research to reveal just how extreme the porn industry has become. She takes readers deep into the world of hardcore porn, describing one nightmarish scene after another...the material she covers is truly shocking.
