Join Revolution Books in welcoming Kathleen Barry, Susan Hawthorne and Renate Klein, authors of the new book:"Big Porn Inc: Exposing the Harms of the Global Pornography Industry".

“Big Porn Inc not only contests pornographic harm and hate, it will, I predict,
incite a new bold wave of global activism in which we reclaim our future.”
−Kathleen Barry, author of Unmaking War, Remaking Men

While the unprecedented mainstreaming of the global pornography industry is transforming the sexual politics of intimate and public life, popularizing new forms of hardcore misogyny, and strongly contributing to the sexualization of children, challenges to the pornography industry continue to be dismissed as uncool, anti-sex and moral panics.

With contributions from leading world experts and activists, Big Porn Inc offers a cutting edge exposé of the hidden realities of a multi-billion dollar global industry that promotes itself as a fashionable life-style choice.

Unmasking the lies behind the selling of porn as ‘just a bit of fun’ Big Porn Inc reveals the shocking truths of an industry that trades in violence, crime and degradation. This fearless book will change the way you think about pornography forever.
