Synopsis

Hard to Swallow Hard-Core Pornography on Screen by Claire Hines, Darren Kerr

Even in our increasingly sexualized culture hard-core pornography and the representation of explicit sex is still hard to swallow. This lively and provocative new collection of essays by leading scholars explores screen representations of pornography and sex in a variety of cultural, historical, and critical contexts. Contributions cover a wide range of topics from sex in the multiplex to online alt-porn, from women in stag films to the excesses of extreme pornography, and a variety of contemporary case studies including porn performance, fashion in hard-core, and gay and lesbian pornography.

Reviews

An excellent snapshot of porn studies as they are today and provides an insight into the range and quality of critical engagement with hardcore pornography in the industry, in the academy, and beyond. -- Laura Ellen Joyce New Review of Film and Television Studies
