(AMHERST, NY) -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Prometheus Books announces the publication of "Porn 101: Eroticism, Pornography and the First Amendment".

Edited by James E. Elias, Ph.D., Gwen Brewer, Ph.D., Vern L. Bullough, Ph.D., R.N., Jeffrey Douglas, J.D., Veronica Diehl Elias, Ph.D., and Will Jarvis (a.k.a. Taliesin the Bard)

Here it is, the porn book that delves deep into the phenomenon of erotic entertainment from the studies of academic researchers, First Amendment legal battles and the personal perspective of the performers themselves.

Is the sex depicted in pornographic movies a reflection of what happens in real life? Do such movies exploit their female and male actors? Should pornography be held responsible for misconceptions about women and sex, or for violent behavior in men? What is obscenity? What is the difference between the erotic, the pornographic, and the artistic? Should society heed the constant calls for censorship, or is pornography a form of speech that, though objectionable to some, is deserving of Constitutional protection?

These questions and more in the controversial pornography debate are pondered in this wide-ranging collection of essays by both scholars and those who work within the porn industry, from actors and actresses to directors and writers, including top First Amendment attorneys. The effects of pornography on its audience - one of the most heated topics - are examined in depth with all available international data, while tell-all stories from behind the scenes of the industry provide unique insight into porn's production. An all-inclusive volume, Porn 101 covers a broad spectrum of issues.

Essays include "My Years Defending Playboy" by Burton Joseph, "Freedom of Cyberspeech" by Stephen F. Rhode, "Women Who Make Porn" by Patti Britton, "The Effects of Pornography" by Milton Diamond, "A Short History of Sex Toys" by Herbert A. Otto, "What is Feminist Porn" by Veronica Monet, "Sex, Pornography and Religion" by Charlie Latour, "Using Porn to Bridge the Mind-Body Gap" by Nina Hartley and much more. Others featured in the book include Vanessa Del Rio, Ron Jeremy, Sharon Mitchell, Annie Sprinkle, Christi Lake, Jim Holliday, Henry Mach, Gino Colbert and Marjorie Heins. Introduction by Nadine Strossen, President of the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), with a special feature on "The Organizations of "X" by Taliesin, Gloria Leonard and Jeffrey Douglas.
