King Kong Theory
This powerful book explores modern beauty myths and challenges common attitudes about sex and gender. The author uses her own experiences in the porn industry and with rape and prostitution to create a space for those who refuse to obey societal norms. With humor and candor, the author provides a highly charged and thought-provoking account of women's lives today.
