Pornography is probably something you don’t want to think about. But according to author and researcher Gail Dines, the modern porn industry is having a major impact on society, whether we like it or not.
Her research shows that not only is pornography now more mainstream, it’s also becoming much more violent against women. As a result, an increasing number of young women are reporting that pornography is affecting their relationship with their partner and their expectations of what goes on in the bedroom.
And the problem isn’t only the impact it’s having on relationships between men and women, but also on the way the industry treats the women who are caught up in it. The average worker in the porn industry has a ‘shelf-life’ of only a few months, because of the terrible health impacts the work has on her body.
