Girlfriends Films to Distribute Exposure, a New Book Examining the Porn Industrys Role in Society

Penned by Noted Sociologist Dr. Chauntelle, Exposure Reveals Inner Workings & Misconceptions of the Adult Industry!

VALENCIA, Calif. (August 17, 2015) Girlfriends Films is now distributing Exposure: A Sociologist Explores Sex, Society, and Adult Entertainment, a new book examining the adult film industry’s role in society. The book, written by noted sociologist and adult industry expert Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals, reveals the business and personalities behind the porn industry, while debunking myths and misconceptions about adult entertainment.

“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 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.

“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.”

Both adult and mainstream media, along with porn industry members have joined in praise and support of Exposure in recent months.

AVN magazine praised the book for providing “clear-eyed feedback” to porn producers about their products while holding a mirror to the adult business itself: “Anyone in the industry who has yet to be introduced to Dr. Chauntelle will be happy to make her acquaintance here. And those who are familiar with the good doctor will be impressed by the breadth of the subjects covered in this collection.”

XBIZ Managing Editor Dan Miller said: “Through her dedicated research, critical thinking, and a special knack for connecting with the personalities in her field of study, Dr. Chauntelle continues to not only shine a spotlight on a largely misunderstood community, but also do important work that will stand the test of time.”

Among those hailing the new book were adult industry icons Nina Hartley and Steven St. Croix. “As a long-time member of the adult entertainment community it’s refreshing to see our world examined by a trained professional who didn’t come here with pre-conceived notions of the people who inhabit it,” said Hartley, who authored “Nina Hartley’s Guide to Total Sex,” (Avery, 2006).

“A humorous and compelling story of a modern girl looking to decipher the truth between the facts and the ‘narrative’ the establishment would have you believe about modern day pornography’s evil influence on the hearts and minds of our generation,” said St. Croix, an 11-time Best Actor honoree.

Dedicated to evaluating and understanding the world’s diversifying roles of gender, sexuality, and sex work, as well as unbiased studies of the functioning of the social world, Chauntelle Tibbals, Ph.D., is one of the premier experts on adult entertainment and its effects on society. From writing riveting columns examining the value of porn as art on Uproxx.com, to debunking myths surrounding men adult film stars on MensHealth.com, and writing about porn star “bromances” on Playboy.com, Dr. Chauntelle works to enhance understanding of unconventional communities in the general public.
