Andrew Sweeney’s performance perfectly complements the academic tone of this extremely thought-provoking conservative work; his reading is calm and measured, but eminently listenable, and he guides the listener through Shapiro’s arguments with great grace. An interesting and engrossing contribution to the ongoing debate on modern American cultural values.
It’s everywhere, from commercials to New York Times best-sellers to college (and even younger) classrooms. In fact, pornography has become such a part of normal life in 21st century America that many teens and twenty-somethings have had no more important influence. They are the porn generation, where life’s expectations come from Mouseketeer pop tarts, Victoria’s Secret, internet titillation, and condom-flogging sex education.
Tom Wolfe’s novel Charlotte Simmons told part of the story - but in Porn Generation it’s for real. Ben Shapiro speaks as a member of this generation, and the tale he has to tell is a shocking perspective on life in an age where moral relativism reigns on college campuses, oversexed narcissism rules the airwaves, and purity is the new sin. In Porn Generation you’ll learn:
How porn producers see themselves as shaping and taking over Mainstreet U.S.A.
The real face of taxpayer-funded sex education: nine-year-olds learning about condoms; twelve-year-olds being questioned about their "sexual orientation"
The new collegiate do’s (accepting "sexile") and don’ts ("dormcest")
How Hollywood and TV have mainstreamed pornography: why porn stars now turn up regularly on television and in glossy ads - and why celebrities imitate porn stars Mamas, don’t let your daughters grow up to be co-eds: why on college campuses - and throughout the porn generation - sexual relationships are as disposable as used condoms
Is there any good news? Yes. A lifestyle of playing pimps and hos - even if dressed up in preppie clothing - can only last so long before disease, despair, and depression set in - and many in the porn generation are beginning to wake up to their tragedy. Ben Shapiro closes Porn Generation with a roundtable discussion that brings together the diverse perspectives of columnist and bestselling author Michelle Malkin, Dallas Morning News op-ed editor Rod Dreher, former Princeton chaplain Father C. J. McCloskey III, and columnist and best-selling author David Limbaugh to discuss how bad things have become and what the prospects are for bringing the porn generation back from the brink. Porn Generation is the book that will define this generation - and provide a warning for generations to come.

eine umfangreiche kritische Analyse der modernen Pop-Kultur, so, wie man sie nirgends finden wird. Sehr empfehlenswert, eine Pflichtlektüre, besonders für Eltern.
