Editorial Reviews

Booklist - Mike Tribby
Readers eager to spice up carefully constructed lifestyles will appreciate this spunky, funky, hip-young-thang's look at the wonderful world of smut and how it fits into contemporary women's lives. Modeling her research on anthropological inquiry, "good girl" (she says) Carrillo-Gailey was inspired by a boyfriend who accused her "of being pornophobic." Feeling challenged, she listed "every porn subject [she] was curious about" and began to explore. While friends saw her as a "spy" making "them more sexually savvy," she hoped "to understand men and their fascination with porn." The resultant book affords an upbeat-cum-perky look at strip clubs, sex toys, and pornographic videos, magazines, and Internet offerings. Carrillo-Gailey bought and wore "vibrating panties" (declining the optional $50 remote control, however), organized a Tupperware-ish home sex-toy party, and attended a seminar on oral sex. Busy, busy, busy! She achieved, and hopes to convey, greater awareness of products that "might add pleasure," whether used on oneself or someone else, as well as that, as with carbs, "there is good porn and bad porn."

"...a hilarious exploration into the male psyche."

"...the writing is fresh and so freaking funny I was laughing out loud at times."

"Carrillo-Gailey's writing style is breezy and humorous. ... PORNOLOGY is good for 230-ish pages of amusement."
Austin Chronicle
"She manages to master the laugh-out-loud anecdotes while baiting the reader's interest with real-world tips." (May 18, 2007)
