Immodest Proposals: Through the Pornographic Looking Glass

Out of necessity in frankly covering a murky subject like pornography, this book may occasionally have language that could be offensive to some people. The book explores pornography in a social context that originated with the first clothing and the first language. The exploration continues with the invention of the camera, its offering of new opportunities in pornography, and various legal and social interactions growing out of these.

The author explores a hypothesis that interest in pornography has its roots in a debaucher-debauchee dichotomy beginning with civilization, and this generates the spectator fascination, commercial customers, pornography creators, and porno models themselves. Touches on the history of pornography, legal issues raised by pornography, and descriptions of aspects of pornography should enlighten readers to an enormous and real cultural phenomenon lurking below the surface of our contemporary civilization and not without its effects on everyone.
