“Having the option to pre-order my book in an electronic version gives readers greater flexibility to enjoy it with their favorite devices,” Dr. Chauntelle said. “Whether as a paperback or e-Book, Exposure will give anyone a comprehensive glimpse into the world of adult entertainment and the people who inhabit it.”

Exposure has gained the attention and praise from academics, media, and adult industry members, all of who have hailed its fresh approach to social inquiry. “If you want to speak from understanding and not parrot media portrayals of porn, read this book!” said Nina Hartley, award-winning adult entertainment actress and author of Nina Hartley’s Guide to Total Sex, whose testimonial is featured on the book’s front cover.
Ronald Weitzer, PhD, of George Washington University called the book’s view of the adult industry as “unique and fresh.” Others like Kathryn Hausback Korgan, author of The State of Sex, said readers will get a “better understanding of an often misunderstood industry, and a fresh perspective (of porn).”
Exposure is a compelling first-hand narrative and a no-holds-barred testimonial challenging existing stereotypes about sex and adult entertainment from the perspective of one of its foremost experts. Dr. Chauntelle recounts humorous personal tales at her first adult industry trade convention, reflects on being an AVN Awards judge, and discusses her struggles as a scholar interested in learning more about adult entertainment.
