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!

This book is hilarious! As a 'good girl' I was attracted to the title, and has turned out to be a funny and informative read! For all you gals who think all magazines are dirty, sex toys dirty and pornos wrong, read this! The author is well educated (3 degrees, one from Harvard), funny, a surprisingly good writer (she is a freelance writer) and did all the work for us. She makes up a list of things us girls are curious about when it comes to porn, and don't necessarily want to go through 50 products/toys to find what they want. She visits brothels, attends sex seminars, tries sex toys, vibrators and other bedroom accessories. The things that happen to her on said journey are hilarious, and kept me entertained!

For those watching your pocketbook this close to the holiday season, you can find it at your local library (as I did). Chapters has the cheapest price at $11.22 (for you Irewards people only $10.66). Amazon.ca also has it, but their prices vary - used ones are very cheap, but be careful about shipping and duty etc.

A great, informative and light read from the world's first Anthropornologist!
