Synopsis
Pornography produces a mixture of gut reactions in most people: fascination, guilt, disgust, rage. What it doesn't often stimulate, this text claims, is an open mind and reasoned discussion. This text argues that as women have much at stake, it is not surprising that campaigns in favour of increased censorship should have recruited them to their ranks, but it insists that there are good reasons for women to resist the rush towards moral outrage. This collection of essays, all by women, asserts that the issues are both more complex and more interesting than the censorship lobby allows. It is a text about the practice as well as the theory of pornography, and includes essays by photographer, Grace Lau, and writers Lynne Segal and Linda Williams.
