VALENCIA, Calif. — Girlfriends Films is now distributing “Exposure: A Sociologist Explores Sex, Society, and Adult Entertainment,” a new book written by sociologist and adult industry expert Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals.
“Dr. Chauntelle is a much respected sociologist and expert on the adult industry, and her new book blows the lid off the porn business,” said Girlfriends Films President Moose. “She brings a refreshing look at the world of adult entertainment with amazing anecdotes and interviews of top personalities in the industry. It’s definitely a must-read!”
“Adult stores are evolving and diversifying the products they offer to their customers,” added Moose, “Exposure is a great addition to any store’s inventory, as it will stimulate shoppers’ minds, while helping them better understand the industry and products they enjoy.”
Retailers and stores interested in ordering copies of “Exposure” may contact Moose at Girlfriends Films by e-mail at Moose@GirlfriendsFilms.com or David Diamond at DDiamond@GirlfriendsFilms.com. Both are available by phone at (661) 775-5600.
“Exposure” is described as 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. 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.
“I’m very excited to partner with Girlfriends Films and their outstanding team,” Dr. Chauntelle said. “‘Exposure’ has been a true labor of love that provides a compelling and fresh look at the porn business and its personalities. Having seen the industry demonized and misunderstood in the media, I set out to write a book to help bring perspective and debunk misconceptions surrounding it.”
Noted adult industry executive Theresa Flynt writes in the book’s foreword: “In ‘Exposure,’ Chauntelle offers fascinating insight into the adult industry’s inner workings, from film sets to business operations. She offers readers the chance to explore a mysterious world through her eyes — the eyes of an informed, sex-positive, empowered woman.”
“But as interesting as her accounts are,” continues the Flynt’s foreword, “I found myself drawn even more to the plight she has endured in order to be taken seriously by another peer group — researchers and academics.”
