LOS ANGELES — Two months before its release, Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals’ book, “Exposure: A Sociologist Explores Sex, Society, and Adult Entertainment,” is featured on Amazon’s Hot New Releases list.

“I’m very pleased and thankful for the great support the book has received from book lovers and fans of my work,” Dr. Chauntelle said. “Exposure is a labor of love in order to bring a greater understanding of the adult industry and the people composing it.”

Published by Greenleaf Book Group, “Exposure: A Sociologist Explores Sex, Society, and Adult Entertainment” will be available to purchase July 7.

“We're two months away from releasing Exposure, and I'm thrilled to report a strong growth in interest and orders for the book from distributors and retailers. Part academic in nature and part erotic, ‘Exposure’ taps into many different markets looking for an engaging read,” said Greenleaf Book Group Distribution Account Executive Yolanda Barton.

Among those commenting on the book are Kerry O. Ferris, Ph.D., associate professor of sociology, Northern Illinois University, who said, “Many conventional university-types have spurned Dr. Chauntelle and her work merely because of the topic. Do not repeat this mistake. If people are doing it, then sociologists should be studying it, and you should be reading about it in ‘Exposure.’”

“Exposure” is a first-hand narrative “with a no-holds barred testimonial challenging existing stereotypes about sex and adult entertainment from the perspective of one of its foremost experts.”

In the book, she recounts humorous personal tales at her first adult industry trade convention, reflects on being an industry awards judge, and discusses her struggles as a scholar interested in learning more about adult entertainment.
