    One thought on “Make Love Not Porn: Technology's Hardcore Impact on Human Behavior”

    1. I first saw the TED talk this book came from here. Go watch it first, it's quite short. If you're intrigued, pick up this book.I'm not a porn viewer myself, but most of my boyfriends have been pretty open about their porn, and I don't object to the idea of pornographic material. But I do worry about the portrayal of women in (mainstream) pornography, which is what I thought this talk and book would target. But that isn't the impact Gallop is talking about, it's much more personal than that. So I [...]

    2. A quick and easy read that expounds a bit further on Cindy Gallop's 5-minute TED talk of the same name.Although much of what she says can be found in her speech, this little mini-book does go into a bit more detail.Recommended for people who enjoyed/were intrigued by the topic of her lecture, which can be watched here.

    3. Great introduction to the MakeLoveNotPorn websiteGreat introduction book about Cindy Gallop's project MakeLoveNotPorn. Would recommend it you are not talking about seks, especially if you have a partner.

    4. This book is a pretty short read that expands on a 5-minute TED Talk about the MakeLoveNotPorn website. Talking about sex can be a taboo subject, so a lot of people learn about sex from porn. Cindy Gallop explains how sex in porn may differ from real sex. Learning about sex from porn may lead to some misconceptions that can be cleared up through open and honest conversations. The book started off strong but had too many long quotes from a variety of people toward the end. Since most men and many [...]

    5. For as short as this book is, it is quite informative and provides additional insight to how Gallop's web site came to be. Here is Gallop's web site, CAUTION ADULT MATERIAL. makelovenotporn/pages/landingShe provides a good, non-judgemental commentary on how porn is not sex ed.Here is Gallop's short TED Talk on the subject, CAUTION ADULT MATERIAL:youtube/watch?v=FV8n_EIf your bedroom repertoire is defined by porn, I would suggest watching Gallop's video, its only 4 minutes long, check out her web [...]

    6. This is less a book than an extended plug/ad for the author's website. It has a bit of background info and discusses a couple of key ideas on the subject, but not with any depth. If you have read anything before on this, it won't add much, if anything at all. So wasn't sure how to rate it, as it fits it's purpose without being something I would recommend if you are actually interested in the titular topic--hence no stars. But as it is so short (can be read in around 30 minutes) it is really more [...]

    7. Part of TED's e-book series based on their talks, Gallop shares more fully about the work she's doing with her website MakeLoveNotPorn. Comprehensive sex educators and communities who care how a heavy visual diet of hardcore porn changes and challenges us in having meaningful sex lives will want to read this and then go to Gallop's site to learn more, and begin conversations with the ones they love.

    8. Short, sharp and interesting expansion of Cindy Gallop's uncomfortable talk at TED 2009. Like Cindy, I'm pro-porn for those who are interested in it. However, as the father of a teen girl for whom partners (physical and emotional) will become a reality all too soon, I'm interested in helping her understand that fulfilling sexual physicality is based on something other than readily available 'Net porn.Worth the short read.

    9. Ich kann Frau Gallop nicht in allem zustimmen, was sie schreibt, finde aber ihr Anliegen sehr wichtig und die Art, mit der sie es vermittelt, sehr sympatisch und erfrischend.Gerade in Gedanken an mögliche eigene Kinder spricht sie hier eine große Herausforderung an, der wir uns auf jeden Fall stellen müssen.

    10. I picked up this extended essay after hearing Ms. Gallop talk on Dan Savage's podcast and perusing her site briefly. If you're not familiar with her work then this is a good introduction - merely good as it reads more like an extended piece of marketing rather than any additional exposition of her philosophy or views. You get more (and better) from her website.

    11. Incredibly well put. It's engaging and can make a person really think about what they're doing and what they're watching. That's exactly what I expected out of a TED book, and I'm so glad that that is what I got.

    12. This is the second TED Books I've read through Kindle. I like the concept of these books--that it expands on a popular TED talk. This one is by Cindy Gallop was a controversial topic. Check it out if you get the chance.

    13. Quick interesting read, great observations on technologies (not so good) impact on our sex lives.And it is Cindy Gallop - and she is just all kinds of fabulous. II you are not familiar with her, check out her Ted talks and other videos you won't be disappointed.

    14. Out. Standing. I strongly recommend this for teachers, parents, adolescents, and those 20-somethings already adrift. This book (at least the first four-fifths) should be required reading in conjunction with the Birds-and-the-Bees talk.

    15. Interessante e breve analisi sugli effetti che la cultura pornografia ha avuto nella generazione che ha avuto libero accesso ad internet sin dall'adolescenza. MakeLoveNotPorn

    16. Ms. Gallop gets pretty repetitive and self-congratulatory throughout, but the points she makes are valid. A summation: Internet porn has become the default Instruction Book for Sex, and not a particularly quality instruction book it is. Viva convention!

    17. Interesting, but I wish Gallop had spent more time trying to explore whether her observations about hardcore pornography were just observation bias, or looked for more causal relationships, than relying on anecdotes and correlated stories.
