About the Program
Gail Dines, sociology and women's studies professor at Wheelock College, presents her research on the social and cultural impact that pornography plays in American society. Ms. Dines reports that the average age that boys first view porn is at 11.5 years and she argues that the result is an unhealthy understanding of sexuality. She also examines how pornography has been embraced by American advertisers and big business. Gail Dines presents her book at Politics & Prose Bookstore in Washington, DC.
