Xavier: a young, ambitious, sophisticated producer. Matías: a passionate, attractive artist with the air of mystery. Whatever the outcome of this crossroads, her journey through lust in the Mediterranean is sure to be unforgettable.

Good Porn

Good Porn: a Woman’s Guide

Porn… For so many women it is a dirty word, a taboo topic. Even with porn’s prevalence in the world today, so many women are still afraid of it: unsure of what exactly porn is, what constitutes “good” porn, and why it should matter to them.

Good Porn: a Woman’s Guide is Erika Lust’s introductory, comprehensive work on the matter. With a mix of humor, expertise, and a down-to-earth attitude, Erika examines the films starting with the history of porn and discussing the contemporary issues, trends, and aesthetics. She also shows readers what types and tastes are available (and why men and women tend to enjoy such different kinds), and what the modern woman might find inspiring about adult films.

Erika dispels the myth that porn is only for men, and examines the role of women in the industry; from writers and directors to the stars themselves. She also breaks with the assumption that one can’t be a feminist and still like porn by offering insight on its educational and erotic value, and covers the benefits of porn in heightening women’s sexual appetites.

Sharp and honest, Good Porn breaks away from women’s previous assumptions of porn, opening a new discourse on sexuality and relationships.

This book is published by Seal Press, and is also offered in Spanish, French, Italian and German.

So what constitutes ‘Good Porn’? Read Erika Lust’s Good Porn Manifesto to get an idea of what’s contained in this book.
