Pornology
By Ayn Carrillo-Gailey

I was unsure of what to expect when I bought this book. I didn’t really think that I would expand my already porn-friendly horizons, yet I felt compelled to buy it….maybe to enlighten myself on how a woman goes through her whole life being afraid of porn.
The author is accused of being “pornophobic” by her boyfriend and she sets out to prove him wrong. She starts a to-do list of things she can do to help her understand why men buy porn and what it is that draws seemingly intelligent men to it. Obsessed with list-making and challenged by criticism, this is her exploration of all things naughty.
It is an easy read and hilariously funny at times. Even though it can be considered a “chick book” (like some men call emotionally heavy films “chick-flicks”) I highly recommend this book to anyone who has an uptight woman in their life. Do you have to hide your NA membership from your wife or girlfriend? Does your best girlfriend think you are addicted to porn and squirm at the thought of attending a strip club? Does your female roommate flip out when you want to watch HBO’s “Cathouse”? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you must read this book and have her read it as well. Trust me when I say that it will change her life and she will no longer feel like the sex industry is dirty or perverse. If the uptight author can get past her issues, then your wife or girlfriend can too.
I bought 30 copies of this book for my colleagues and friends, and told them all to read it and pass it along to anyone in their life that might be a little squeamish about what we do for a living. If we can get through to more women each and every day, then the world will be a happier and naughtier place!
Enjoy!
You can also find her work at The Naughty Knitters.
