    1. The focus on this seems to be more on the film industry, though it does present a good overview of the issues of debate and areas of interest. Tarrant has obviously read the material, and she notes ares where the data doesn't provide a clear case either way. She also uses more than one research study, including those outside of the US. At times, I found the format a little off - for instance shouldn't all the issues surrounding Deep Throat be brought up when it is first mentioned - but it is a v [...]


    2. الاباحية مشكلة كبيرة ومتعاظمة الجوانب في العالم برمته، يجب السيطرة عليها، والنظر في اجتياحها وكيفية التعامل معها. لكن الجواب حول ان كانت الظاهرة مرضية او صحية او محض شيء عادي فقد تركت الاجابة للكاتبة في حقيقة الامروهذا ما كان وجه المعضلة. فحين تسأل ان كانت هناك مشكلة؟ تقول ن [...]


    3. Pornography probably does not need an explanation to anybody, even if they have never ever watched a video or viewed a magazine that would be euphemistically described as “adult material”. Yet it is big business, very big business, and that is just what is visible and in plain sight. Putting morals and taste aside, it is clear you have to differentiate between pornographic material being produced by consenting adults and that which is clearly not, such as that featuring animals or children. [...]


    4. I was given a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.3.5-4I’ve been looking for something different to read and noticed this as recently added on Netgalley. I thought “Well, that’s different.” and requested it. I found this to be quite insightful. There were many topics I had never thought about and/or considered before. It’s very much an unbiased view on everything you could possibly think of that’s pornography related. (Morality, promoting negative views on sex, if it [...]


    5. ~3,5 starsi picked up this book because the topic seemed interesting. i don't think anyone i know has actually thought about things that are directly related to porn but are not, in fact, porn, and by that i mean everything behind what you see when you open pornhub.on this book there are so many topics i never considered before (history of porn, legal and medical issues, etc.) and i learned a lot of things that i'd probably never say in front of my parents but are, nonetheless, really interestin [...]


    6. Interesting topic ruined by a boring execution. It is a book about porn and I feel like I’m reading a q&a with highly specialized expert that answers questions without any regard to the recipients, and just tell whatever comes to their mind without editing. This book is created as a collection of questions one would have about the porn industry and answers. And the answers are often unsatisfying. They jumping from one era to another and are leaving everything in-between as it never happene [...]


    7. Well-written non-fiction. Tarrant delivered information from numerous viewpoints concerning this controversial subject in a mostly objective way. I came away knowing more concerning piracy and legal issues surrounding the pornography industry. The brief introduction about the history of porn at the beginning of the book is interesting to read and gives perspective before diving into the meat of the book. What we have today is a culmination of centuries of human sexual development; understanding [...]


    8. The title seems alarmist, but it is part of the series "what everyone needs to know," which included the drone book from last week. Tarrant offers a dispassionate explanation of pornography as an industry, including romance novels and niche magazines, and the legal regulations and financing the drive them. As simultaneously one of the greyest and most scrutinized business models, pornography is a fascinating social science and public health field, and Tarrant offers the most recent studies on th [...]


    9. I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. As someone who is interested in psychology, sociology, and sexology I found this book truly fascinating. I loved how detailed this book was and that Shira Tarrant cited her sources. When reading a psychology book I always want the sources because that just gives me more and more things to research and look into. I felt that Shira Tarrant did a good job at remaining unbiased in this book. You can tell that she has certain opini [...]


    10. I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This book is part of the Oxford University Press "What Everyone Needs to Know" series. It reads like an extensive literature review on the many different facets of pornography: the business, politics, culture, performers, audience, and the impact on society and individuals. What is most remarkable is how little is known about any of these topics; the research isn't there, is heavily biased, or is woefully incomplete. As a libr [...]


    11. This is a challenging topic and this book will enable readers to explore these provocative issues and make their own opinion about the past, present and future of this major enterprise.While I'm not interested into knowing the industry basics I am about those important issues such as the sociological impact of pornography: does porn cause violence against women? Can people become addicted to it? How society responds to that?Read more on The Serial Reader Blog.


    12. Given the relatively positive review in the New Yorker and that it was published by respected academic press, this book was a profound disappointment. It is set up like an extended FAQ, each section heading posing a question, followed by a couple paragraphs' answer. There's just not that much substance. And Oxford should be further ashamed for bad copy editing.In its favor, the book is neutral, willing to point out where opponents to pornography just make it up, and proponents claims are not sub [...]


    13. The Pornography Industry: What Everyone Needs to Know by Shira Tarrant is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in mid-March while on a Spring Break road-trip through Wisconsin.Tarrant's short, jaunty, research-based, question-and-answer chapters are to the point, updated, and focused on the what, the how, the comparative, and the quantitatives of pornography. Informative without being imperative or preachy, it's a simple, straightforward read.


    14. A good book to learn about the current discussions about pornography. It falls short at going deep into sociological or psychological aspects of porno, but I guess that wasn't author's main ambission. Though it might get a bit cumbersome at times with studies, stats and researchs scattered around, it was a good read.


    15. An excellent overview of an industry that I really don't know too much about, in the scheme of things. This author does a good deal to dispel myths and put out actual facts, insofar as one is able to get them from an industry that remains in shadows. Became interested in this as I watched "The Deuce," and it's a good companion to refer to as one watches.


    16. I enjoyed the way this book was set out; a series of questions and answers, but I found the content itself fell a bit flat to be honest. Good if you want an overview of the industry, but if you want to delve a bit deeper there is a good bibliography to work through.



    17. A good introduction to the pornography industry. Comprehensive and covers virtually every question that a person might have about it.


    18. Plenty of interesting facts and figures don't make up for the choppy format and lack of editorial eye. Tarrant tries hard to be as neutral and academic as possible, which does the material a disservice in terms of an overall narrative. The good news is this is a fast read, so if you're looking for a comprehensive overview of the facts of the porn industry, you could do far worse than this.
