NEW YORK — Lynsey G has announced the release of her new book, “Watching Porn (And Other Confessions of an Adult Entertainment Journalist),” from Overlook Press.

The former Editor-in-Chief of adult industry magazine WHACK! and Feminist Porn Award-winning director’s latest work is being widely lauded by reviewers, being named one of Chicago Reader’s “Most Anticipated Books of 2017,” and included among Huffington Post’s “10 Buzzworthy Books from Memoirists and Essayists.”

“I feel like my 10 years of watching, critiquing, and writing about adult entertainment has culminated with the publication of this book!” exclaims Lynsey G. “It’s been a dream of mine to combine my crazy stories with all that I’ve learned from the industry in one volume, and it’s been incredible to work with Overlook Press to make the dream a reality!”

“Watching Porn” is now available from most North American booksellers.

At 24-years-old and with a freshly-received degree in English, Lynsey G began reviewing adult films in New York. One review led to another, and what was meant to be a temporary gig to help pay the bills became a lifelong passion to share stories of those in the industry with the public. After nearly a decade in the business, Lynsey G’s newest book explores the many sides of adult entertainment, contemplating in sharp, cheeky prose the dynamics of feminism, race, and gender equality in the industry, as well as her candid experiences of being a female journalist in the world’s most provocative industry.

Taking her experience of nearly a decade of covering the business, trends, personalities, and ethics of adult entertainment, “Watching Porn” is a provocative book, which Playboy calls “a cultural analysis [which] explores how challenging it can be for women to function in the world’s most provocative… industry,” and David Ley, Ph.D. calls “A valuable and insightful contribution to our ongoing dialogue about the role porn holds in society today, and what role we believe it should hold, in a responsible and ethical formulation of modern sexuality.”
