Christians, feminists, and the culture of pornography
In this pioneering study in religion and culture, Mielke acknowledges the power that pornographic images continue to assert in a culture whose conscious intention is to deny their attraction. Mielke's unique analysis brings together a wide range of sources--contemporary as well as historical Christianity, sex therapy, secular feminism, contemporary psychoanalysis, and behavioral science research studies--in an attempt to explain the prevalence of pornographic themes and imagery in human sexual arousal and fulfillment.
