T he last time I saw Gail Dines speak, at a conference in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her description of the problems caused by pornography, and provoked laughter with her sharp observations about pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the event — many of whom had never viewed pornography as a problem before — queued up afterwards to pledge their support. The scene highlighted Dines's explosive charisma and the fact that, since the death of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most difficult and interesting of public roles: the world's leading anti-pornography campaigner. She wrote it primarily to educate people about what pornography today is really like, she says, and to banish any notion of it as benign titillation. The book documents the recent history of porn, including the technological shifts that have made it accessible on mobile phones, videogames and laptops. According to Dines's research the prevalence of porn means that men are becoming desensitised to it, and are therefore seeking out ever harsher, more violent and degrading images.
By Natalie Corner For Mailonline. Kiki Minaj, who moved to London from the West Midlands to be an accountant, but is now one of the leading black female adult performers in the UK, appeared on Channel 5's new series The Sex Business, which delves behind the scenes in the porn industry. She told how she can charge up to twice as much as her male co-stars for the same amount of work, and said 'there's no problem with this sexism thing in the porn industry', because 'it's all about the girl'. According to Kiki, intercourse only accounts for around 30 per cent of her time on set, most of which she says is spent 'waiting around'. And while her day job revolves around sex, Kiki admits her life outside of work is much more low-key, and told how she enjoys chilling at home with her friends and family and getting stuck into her favourite pastime - baking.
