Lynsey G’s Acclaimed Memoir “Watching Porn” Now Available in Paperback  

‘Buzzworthy’ Book Reveals Ins & Outs of Pornography Biz in Eye-Popping Detail

(New York, NY / June 14, 2018) – Watching Porn: And Other Confessions of an Adult Entertainment Journalist, the critically-acclaimed memoir from author, critic and filmmaker Lynsey G, is set for an official paperback release June 26.

Lynsey G, the former Editor-in-Chief of adult industry magazine WHACK! and Feminist Porn Award-winning director, has gathered her indelible experiences and unexpected adventures into an astonishing story that grabs readers and takes them on for the ride.

“Pornography may not really be that exotic or that cool, but it is just as interesting as I hoped it would be,” Lynsey G writes when recalling a career in the industry. “It has no agreed-upon leader, no formalized code of conduct, no entrance exam or standard for advancement. The only rule, really, is to follow the money in as safe a way as possible.”

Lynsey G’s colorful account of the porn world earned the book, published by the Overlook Press, a spot on Chicago Reader’s list of ‘Most Anticipated Books of 2017’,Huffington Post’s ‘10 Buzzworthy Books from Memoirists and Essayists’ and lauded byKirkus Reviews as ‘thought-provoking… a cleverly seductive, straightforward, unapologetically carnal chronicle of an unconventional working life.’

Watching Porn also recently won the gold medal in the Sexuality/Relationships category at this year’s Independent Book Publishers Awards (IPPYs).

The author’s work, with a particular focus on the intersection of pornography, feminism and sexuality, has appeared in publications such as Rolling Stone, Glamour, Playboy, Allure, Men’s Health, Refinery29, MEL, BUST, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency and Bitch magazine. The self-described ‘renaissance woman’ continues to express her ideas and thoughts as a reviewer, interviewer, critic, documentary filmmaker and blogger in multiple genres and areas of interest.

Watching Porn is currently available in hardcover at most North American booksellers, both brick-and-mortar and online, including such quality retailers as Barnes & Noble,AmazonIndieBoundPowell’sThe Strand and Shakespeare & Co.
