“I am so grateful to all the amazing people who have shown their support for my new book, which aims to bring a greater understanding of the adult industry and the people who work in it,” Dr. Chauntelle said.

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.

“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.

Another iconic performer lends his support to the book: “Dr. Chauntelle incessantly pokes holes in the doctrine that most of us have grown up with in America. Exposure shatters those notions,” stated Steven St. Croix, an 11-time AVN Award winner for best actor.

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.

Delving deep into the shadowed world of adult entertainment, Exposure: A Sociologist Explores Sex, Society, and Adult Entertainment offers intriguing insight into Dr. Chauntelle’s explorations of porn. 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. She shares her perspectives, as well as gained knowledge within the industry, in a balanced and accessible way.

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.

Ronald Weitzer, Ph.D., George Washington University called the book’s view of the adult industry “unique and fresh.” Others like Kathryn Hausbeck Korgan, Ph.D., author of The State of Sex, said readers will get a “better understanding of an often misunderstood industry and a fresh perspective (of porn).”

Likewise, Brian Alexander, author of America Unzipped: The Search for Sex and Satisfaction, wrote, “Dr. Chauntelle has never failed to impress me with her insight and honesty about (the adult industry).” Corinne Reczek, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Departments of Sociology and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, hailed Exposure’s accessibility, calling the book a “sociologically sound study of the porn industry.”

“I believe this book will give people a greater understanding of porn and the industry as a whole,” said Dr. Chauntelle. “It’s too easy to demonize something that isn’t well understood, and I hope the book will bring about a new discussion about the adult industry and its place in popular culture.”
