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.
