Porn-Anti-Porn

$15.00

Fiction. Porn-Anti-Porn displays the body in pain & passion as it's never been displayed before. Fired at the reader from opposing directions, the texts are brief, erotic, anti-erotic, fiercely funny. Porn-Anti-Porn is, finally, a brilliantly nuanced interrogation of current culture's schizophrenic manipulation of the human body.

“Each of Jaffe’s volumes has been groundbreaking. He has written some of the most inventive fiction of our time.”—Toby Olson

“A pointillist picture of Internet porn and its fetishes. With unfailing precision, Harold Jaffe’s Porn-Anti-Porn ‘paints’ all manner of ‘pornographic’ data across the earthy canvas of a global sexual meltdown. In the two dimensional world of today's voyeurs, everything is possible except intimacy. A vibrant, powerful, disturbing book.”—Eurydice

“How to reconcile blatantly sexualized capitalism with that capitalism's oppressive politics of morality? Harold Jaffe dives deep and wide into the conundrum in his latest book, Porn-Anti-Porn. His intellectual and aesthetic dexterity in the 110 uncanny 'docufictions' is mesmerizing: both deeply unsettling and laugh-out-loud funny.”—Debra DiBlasi
