  3. I think it s pretty ridiculous to read some of the reviews regarding this book It s dry or It s dated Did it not occur to those readers that they are reading an academic film theory book Or that at the time of publishing it was a pioneering study Williams captivated me with her comparisons of porn to musicals and SM to the final girl in horror films I laughed out loud when she described what it must have been like for the Greek gods, Zeus and Hera, to watch porn together Although I I think it s pretty ridiculous to read some of the reviews regarding this book It s dry or It s dated Did it not occur to those readers ...

  5. Linda Williams is one of the best academic writers I have come across She is clear and concise, funny, and entertaining I loved this book It s very explicit, so it s obviously not for everyone, but any feminist both pro and anti pornography should check this one out.

  6. I grew up during a time when debate on pornography consisted of dire accusations that mainstream pornography was harmful to everybody a view that was commonly espoused, despite a near complete lack of evidence supporting it Linda Williams s book is a refreshingly frank and reasoned analysis of cinematic hard core pornography its history, censorship, how it was meant to be viewed, and how women viewing making it has changed it But it s not all feminism and games there s also some Freud baiti I grew up during a time when debate on pornography consisted of dire accusations that mainstream pornography was harmful to everybody a view that was commonly espoused, despite a near complete lack of evidence supporting it Linda Williams s book is a refreshingly frank and reasoned analysis of cinematic hard core pornography its history, censorship, how it was meant to be viewed, and how women viewing making it has changed it But it s not all feminism and games there s also some Freud baiting always fun , an examination of the way economic theory informs pornography, parallels with movie musicals and slasher films, a deliciously scathing indictment of gaze based film analysis, and, in this edition, a very funny bit about CD ROM based porn For all that the book was written before internet pornography really took off in the ...

An impressive weaving together of feminist, Marxist and psychoanalytic theory to explore both the development and meaning of pornography on film that despite being written before the seeming normalisation of pornography via the internet and contemporary commercialisations of the objectification of women retains intense analytical power Williams manages to make sense of the complexities of pornography without falling into the twin traps of sensationalist opposition or cynical resignation to its An impressive weaving together of feminist, Marxist and psychoanalytic theory to explore both the development and meaning of pornography on film that despite being written before the seeming normalisation of pornography via the internet and contemporary commercialisations of the objectifi...
