Book Review: Pornology by Ayn Carrillo-Gailey

Do not let the title scare you off. It has a longer title, Pornology: Noun–1: A Good Girl’s Guide to Porn; 2: The misadventures of the world’s first anthropornologist; 3: A Hilarious Exploration of Men, Relationships, and Sex. I laughed a lot while reading this book. Ayn is a good girl who realizes she is in a not so good relationship, but when her boyfriend tells her she is pornophobic, she takes it as a challenge to see what porn really is. Along the way she finds the answers to many questions that good girls like me wonder about. A five star read for sure!! I was bored and picked this up just for the fun of it. This may answer those same questions many good girls wonder about. I hope you can enjoy this as much as I did.

Summary from Amazon: When Ayn Carrillo-Gailey confronted her boyfriend about his porn habit, he pronounced her “pornophobic.” Determined to prove she wasn’t phobic, simply more enlightened, Ayn set out to learn all she could about this phenomenon. Like any good researcher, she added her new quest to her daily To-Do list:
1. Drop off dry cleaning
2. Call Mom
3. Visit sex toy store on Melrose
Acting as an amateur anthropologist introduced Ayn to a world populated by everyday people. Her quest aroused the curiosity of her female friends: her knitting group quickly turned into informal information sessions, as the women—single or married, involved or not—were desperate for information. What does XXX mean vs. un-rated? What’s the difference between topless dancers and strip clubs? Why is some of it actually not that stimulating? And why are men obsessed with it?
Along the way, Ayn ditched the porn-obsessed boyfriend, and learned that one should not try to make change from a stripper’s G-string tips, nor is the Hustler store the best place to make a first impression on a hot guy. Pornology is the result of one woman’s quest to pierce the veil that modestly covers something many women actually want to know about. Suprising, hilarious, informative, and ultimately non-judgmental, this narrative is one readers won’t put down—once they admit they’re curious enough to pick it up!
