Virtual Book Talk: Porn Work

This is a past event.

Every porn scene is a record of people at work. But on-camera labor is only the
beginning of the story. Porn Work takes readers behind the scenes to explore
what porn performers think of their work and how they intervene to hack it. It tells
a story of crafty workers, faltering managers, and shifting solidarities.

Blending extensive fieldwork with feminist and antiwork theorizing, Porn Work
details entrepreneurial labor on the boundaries between pleasure and tedium.
Rejecting any notion that sex work is an aberration from straight work, it reveals
porn workers' creative strategies as prophetic of a working landscape in crisis. In
the end, it looks to what porn has to tell us about what's wrong with work, and
what it might look like to build something better
