A masterwork of feminist ideology, brilliantly exposing pornography as the antithesis of free expression and the enemy of liberty
In this powerful and devastating critique, poet, philosopher, and feminist Susan Griffin exposes the inherent psychological horrors of pornography. Griffin argues that, rather than encouraging expression, pornographic images and the philosophies that support them actually stifle freedoms through the dehumanization, subjugation, and degradation of female subjects. The pornographic mindset, Griffin contends, is akin to racism in that it causes dangerous schisms in society and promotes sexual regression, fear, and hatred.
This violent rift in Western culture is explored by examining the lives of six notable individuals across two centuries: Franz Marc, the Marquis de Sade, Kate Chopin, Lawrence Singleton, Anne Frank, and Marilyn Monroe. The result is an extraordinary new approach to evaluating sexual health and the parameters of erotic imagination. Griffin reveals pornography as “not a love of the life of the body, but a fear of bodily knowledge, and a desire to silence Eros.”

    But the idea that women are closer to nature and are therefore lacking in a spiritual dimension is not new to pornography. This idea so pervades the imagery and language of civilization that the concept takes on an air of reality. For instance, Carl Jung unthinkingly equates naturalness with femaleness, and (like the Southern plantation owner) finds the African woman more female than the “civilized woman.”
