Set for July publication, the “must-read” book on the porn industry is gaining traction thanks to pre-orders and positive reviews, as it remains atop the Amazon chart. The list, which changes on a daily basis, has kept Exposure at or near the top throughout the week as retailers and readers have been submitting pre-orders for the acclaimed book.
“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, 2015. To pre-order the book, click here.
“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.
Exposure has gained the attention and praise from academics, media, and adult industry members in recent months. “For anyone with a passing interest in porn—and let’s be honest, we all have more than a passing interest in porn—this book is a must-read,” said EJ Dickson, Lifestyle Editor of The Daily Dot.
“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 in the book’s front cover.
Among those impressed with 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.’” Her comments will appear on the book’s back cover.
Exposure is a compelling 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 AVN Awards judge, and discusses her struggles as a scholar interested in learning more about adult entertainment.
