Friday, June 23: Lynsey G, Missoula-based author, reads from her new memoir, Watching Porn and Other Confessions of an Adult Entertainment Journalist. 7pm.
Tantalizing, eye-opening, and witty, Watching Porn is a provocative book about an average girl’s foray into the porn industry and the people who make it what it is, both in front of and behind the camera. Often laugh-out-loud funny and thought provoking, Watching Porn is a wildly entertaining and surprisingly relatable memoir that will spark conversation about the intersection of pornography, sex, relationships, consumerism, and what it means to be a feminist today.
“A young, vivacious, sexually-repressed feminist gets a job watching porn. Hijinks ensue . . . A valuable and insightful contribution to our ongoing dialogue about the role that porn holds in society today, and what role we believe it should hold, in a responsible and ethical formulation of modern sexuality.” — David Ley, PhD, Author of Ethical Porn for Dicks
