Pressestimmen

Pornland . . . will now be the starting point for serious discussions about how porn shapes and distorts social and sexual norms. Dines understands both the economics and cultural power of the pornography industry perhaps better than anyone ever has.”—Jackson Katz, author of The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help

“[A] thoughtful analysis of pornography’s infiltration into the American economy, its detrimental effects on the sexual and emotional health of women and men, and its ability to perpetuate both sexism and racism.”—Veronica Arellano, Library Journal
 
“Dines brilliantly exposes porn’s economics, pervasiveness, and impact with scholarship as impeccable as her tone is reasonable. This book will change your life. Ignore it at your peril.”—Robin Morgan
 
“An eyes-wide-open look at the way the porn industry exploits and damages the gift of our sexuality to fuel itself.”—Wendy Maltz, coauthor of The Porn Trap: The Essential Guide to Overcoming Problems Caused by Pornography
 
“Bravo to Gail Dines! She exposes a huge problem of our time that few people are willing to confront. Dines follows the extensive money trail, uncovering the role of corporate duplicity and greed while showing how steadily pornography has infiltrated into everyday life from almost cradle to grave.”—Diane Levin, coauthor of So Sexy, So Soon

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Pornography has grown into a massive, global commercial product that is hijacking the sexual expression and bodies of adults and children as young as 11 (or less) years old. A brave, passionate and fact based book, backed up with years of a growing body of research. Human sexuality is in a significant process of change due to pornography. I ground breaking, well researched and wonderfully composed book. A must read if you care about healthy sexual relationships and expression of yourself and the generation to come.

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The book is well researched. It gives good insight in how the porn industry works and reveals how porn is not so much about sex but violence against women. This book will help me to talk about the topic with my teen children in an objective and informed way. I would say everybody with teen kids should read the book. The weakness of the book is a bit of an academic style and it could offer a stronger section on helping people how to deal with porn.

Ich habe das Buch angefangen, aber ziemlich schnell das Interesse beim lesen verloren. Nie zu ende gelesen und letztendlich bei momox verschärbelt.

An important, difficult book 3. Januar 2014
Von Amanda Sledz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I went searching for this book after reading an article in the New York Times about declining American sexuality. This article stated that over 50% of American women now claim to experience little to no pleasure from sex. From there I read an article revealing that 47% of Japanese women report no interest in sex, and plan to never marry or have children. Both of these articles stated that researchers had discovered two likely causes of this decline: increased reliance on technology, and increased porn use. The first one made sense to me; it's hard to have a spicy evening if your lover takes an iPad to bad, and then rolls over to send a few final messages and Tweets into a phone before passing out. See two people on a date recently? If they can make it through dinner without a phone check, it's cause for applause. The second one though? Increased viewing of sexual intimacy seemed like something that would cause *more* sexuality, not less. Still, the article stated that increasingly men reported preferring "hook-up culture" to relationships because it was closer to their relationship to porn: quick and to the point and with a new face. At the same time, that "quick and to the point" is exactly what straight women don't want, and so they'd rather be alone.

This book illuminated these assertions. The author deftly outlines how male sexual understanding is shaped through observation of porn-style sex from an early age. This isn't stealing dad's nudie magazine or watching an old grainy Hustler tape; this is one image after the other, with the option to increase the violence or kink as tastes evolve over time. The porn industry itself supports this assertion through documentaries like "Hardcore" (a UK release) and "9 to 5 in the Porn Industry" which interviews heavy weight porn stars like Sasha Grey at the early stages of her career. At that early age, the stars have to be willing to do almost anything, and are violently degraded and physically hurt for hours -- so much so that 90% don't make a second film. Even those who have long careers lamented in the films how evolving tastes are forcing them to endure increasing levels of violence and humiliation if they want to prolong their careers.

And what do young male viewers learn from watching this? That if they want to up the ante in a sexual relationship, they up the violence. That female sexual response mirrors male response. That women are willing to do anything, and there's no need to stop, even if she's crying or asks you to. Similar to the articles listed above, the author reports that only 5% of women report enjoying sex on a "hook up" -- not much motivation to pursue further. She also states that men are also left vulnerable, and insecure about sexual capabilities when using porn stars as a means of measurement.

Is her evidence perfect? No. She bases a lot of her research on informal surveys of college and high school students. It is unclear what kind of racial, class, and ethnic diversity was present in the survey sample. It was also unclear how many surveys were distributed over all. It would be compelling to include data about the porn habits of sex offenders and domestic abusers, as well as female viewers of porn (an area that really needed to be addressed more thoroughly). Segments of stories from stars like Jenna Jameson and Sasha Grey, both of whom radically changed the industry before ditching it, further underscores the potency of her assertions. If these women are presented and understood as objects, do their male porn counterparts suffer the same stigma? Is there any escaping the objectification? And if there isn't, isn't it plain to see that this type of media is damaging?

I can't recommend doing away with any form of media, but we should know what we're watching, and acknowledge the potential impact. And this seems to be what the author successfully encourages each reader to do.

Important, Gut Wrenching, Groundbreaking, Expose 21. Juli 2010
Von John D. Foubert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Gail Dines' Pornland lives up to its billing as the culmination of the life's work of one of the most reputable scholars of the effects of pornography on society. In it, Dines lays out an indictment of the pornography industry where only the pornography industry itself could vote "acquit." She masterfully traces the history of pornography from the feud between Playboy, Penthouse, and Hustler through the modern day mainstream "body punishing sex" and brutal violence of online pornography. Based on her several decades of research on pornography and its purveyors, she lays bare an industry that has violated women in every way imaginable and is now running out of ideas on how many ways to penetrate their orifices. Her book reveals to everyday pornography users and to people who haven't ever seen pornography just how much porn is effecting our society, how violent it has become, and how much we all need to work to rid our society of its effects. Pornland is a call to action to reclaim a critical part of ourselves -- our sexuality. Whether the reader understands the cause of pornography to be sin, patriarchy, oppression, whether the reader sees porn as an expression of healthy sexuality, an addiction, or a harmless pastime, all should read Dines' critical look at this omnipresent influence on our society.

Think porn culture isn't a problem? You need to read this book! 31. Juli 2011
Von Autumn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I am fortunate enough to have had the chance read Gail Dines' book, Pornland. Dines' describes how the porn industry operates *today*, in the 21st Century. She does this first by describing the men who created the industry as now know it: Hugh Hefner, Bob Guccione, and Larry Flynt. These men were excellent capitalists, not lovers of freedom. Dines provides evidence from women who've worked for them, and uses the pornographer's own words as well, to prove her points.

She then describes the hard-core pornography that has become mainstream today. The popular film series Girls Gone Wild depicts all women as being sexually available, Dines asserts, because women, specifically young, white women, are ready to undress and make-out with one another just for the thrill of knowing men are watching...or so one would think from watching Girls Gone Wild.

Dines also addresses how both women and men are negatively influenced by the mainstream porn industry in their everyday life. Many heterosexual women are confused by why men are so interested in having anal sex; the increased focus on anal sex in pornography might have something to do with this. Likewise, the vast majority of teenage and twenty-something women in the U.S. have taken up shaving their pubic hair. This comes directly from porn, where women are typically shown hairless (liking pubic hair on a women is considered a fetish and there is a special genre of porn for it). This change in the way women take care of themselves has resulted in nurses changing the way they do rape-crises kits; they can no longer collect samples of public hair, as they once did.

Anyone living in today's society should pick up this book, as I really did not begin to touch on the arguments Dines makes. Everything she says comes from the view of a Marxist and leftist who is fed up with the left not taking the racist, misogynist, capitalist porn industry seriously, and indeed, coming up with every possible excuse of why not to do so.

Absolutly best argument built against porn so far 17. September 2012
Von VR - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
i cant recommend this book enough - the author (a woman and a feminist) put the arguments against using porn in such an eloquent manner with such powerfull and bulletproof logic and argument NO MAN ON EARTH COULD ! it probably takes a woman view to tell us men how ugly the porn got... we men just completely lost the ability to critically think about this men's favorite past-time beyond repeating formulaic shouts like:

1) porn is only fantasy and harmless fairytale for adults
2) porn is finally liberating our long pent-up sexuality
3) we are adults and we can always discern between porn and real sex with real women
4) porn can never change our attitudes towards women

The author Gail Dines is no feminist radical and you must admire her patience and clear logic with which she builds the case against the porn-industry and its false claims and downright lies about their noble and liberating mission in our bedrooms... the books reads like crime novel and with every page and with every popular claim observed (some are listed above 1-4), disected and completely debunked with cold logic and arguments.. the ugly and slimy face of porn starts to seep though the public mask this industry carefully constructed within last 15 years, built to make you believe watching porn is actually natural and healthy "entertainment" with no side-effects and absolutely no doubts necessary...

as reaction to some other reviewers... i actually loved that the book was on more philosophical and personal-opinion side rather than the ussual pop-psychology books with hundreds of research studies and all-nation surveys and polls put together and thrown into your face on every other page but no critical thinking from the authors... Gail Dineson on the other hand sat down and really thought about the whole problem and presented a coherent and well argumented view of pornography... you dont have to agree with her but this book is like having a great discussion with a very good rhetoric and critical thinker who doesnt beat you with surveys and poll results but instead uses arguments and critical thinking to try to convert you... iam totally converted... and btw. iam a man, 31 age, in long-term relationship, atheistic and recently worried by my long term compulsive porn-use and its effects on health, relationship and my sexuality...

I believe we need both types of books - those author teams that gather scientific data and statistical numbers (the hard facts) and draw conclusions from facts only and the other type - the independent thinkers and "philosophers" who only use comon sense and their own experience and views... both books have their benefits and value in the discussion...

some reviewers seem to devaluate Daines because she dares to say "only" her opinion without supporting it with double blind studies and national poll results, graphs and consumer analysis... iam a man and porn-user and everything Daines says makes total sense - a common sense in fact... much of the stuff disclosed in the book about male behaviour of porn-users applies perfectly in my case - i just never could articulate it as good and clear as this women...

Pornland is great 12. Dezember 2013
Von xicotencatl loza - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Men and women are gravitating to pornography feeling that they will touch it once and end with such curiosity. The feeling of curiosity literally kills the cat in this example. Because the use of pornography is never used once and it can end up killing someone. It builds on and on till it becomes an addiction. Gail Dines says, “the general argument is that we radical feminists “cherry pick” the worst and then make wild generalization about the type of porn men are actually using”. Really there are other forms of porn that can do harm. It is not a "feminist" or "Christian" telling you that this is harmful, there are facts that can prove it like Gail Dines does a good job defining to us the harms of pornography if anyone has a curiosity of picking one up.
