This important book launch firmly puts porn in its place and through a series of essays, documents the proliferation and normalization of pornography, the way it has become a global industry and its violence towards and degradation of women.

Big Porn Inc is an exposé of the hidden realities of the global industry that promotes itself as a fashionable lifestyle choice. It features essays by prominent writers and anti-porn activists including Gail Dines, Maggie Hamilton, Helen Pringle, and others.

Many of the issues connected to the porn industry are covered including the growing porn culture, stripping and prostitution, abuse of animals and children (including a tragic victim impact statement) and what drives the porn industry.

Unmasking the lies behind the selling of porn as ‘just a bit of fun’, Big Porn Inc reveals an industry that trades in violence, crime and degradation.
