This is a laugh-out-loud funny book. Although it is non-fiction, it reads like a fiction book -- chick lit. It is somewhat difficult to believe that the author did not embellish the facts just a smidge, but based on the acknowledgements and "about the author" sections, it seems that it is all true. Great book -- highly recommended.

This book was not what I thought it would be. Billed as a "Good Girl's Guide to Porn," I expected more of a light-hearted yet somewhat clinical overview of the types of porn available, people involved in porn, etc. Instead this book reads more like a memoir, and chronicles the author's quest to get over being "pornophobic" by checking off items from a list of things to do which include meet a porn star, try a vibrator, and attend a sex toy party.

Interspersed with her accounts of these experiences are tales of her and her knitting group's attempts to find love. Some sections, especially those concerning the author's mother, are LOL funny.

Pornology is a breezy intro to its subject, meaning it is very light and not very in depth. If you looking to this book for in depth product descriptions you will be disappointed. As a memoir however this book is a lot of fun.

Wither you are just starting to explore the world of porn and sex, or you are a pro, this book is full of all sorts of information, and follows the journey of the Author through her first experiences.

When Ayn is accused of being a "porn-a-phobic" she sets out to learn what she can about it, and about herself. Along the way, she learns that a relationship is not just about the man getting pleasure, and that pron is not just for men. Everything from watching movies, to visiting a Brothel in Vegas changes not only the way Ayn looks at porn, but how she looks at life.

I would suggest this book to anybody interested in this subject, even at just a mild curiosity.

I absolutely loved this book. I read this my freshman year of college. I had found it on a trip to Urban Outfitters and thought it would be an interesting read. It was not at all what I expected, but that is not a bad thing. I had always been somewhat of a "prude" as my friends called me, and this book helped me to slowly explore a more sexual world.

The book follows a young woman on her journey of exploring not only porn, but a who sexual world. There were moments that I felt a strong connection to the narrator, and I would recommend this book to any woman, and even some men. This book is definitely a must read!

A fun ride. I'm glad I got it on here. The author comes off as a little naive about the world around her, but I guess that's the premise of the book, so what do I know?
