Abstract:

"As a card-carrying member of the ACLU and a writer for magazines like Penthouse and Maxim, Gil Reavill has always believed that Americans have a right to look at whatever they want in private. In the 1980s he worked for some hardcore publications like Screw, and didn't see a problem with it." "But now he's a dad who realizes that something has gone seriously wrong in American culture. Both adults and kids are being exposed to smut without their consent, and "just change the channel" doesn't work anymore." "In this eye-opening book, Reavill looks back at his experiences in sex magazines, and how the evolving standards of the last two decades led to today's all-smut all the time culture. He offers parents tips on how to combat the industries that pollute the public square with smut, without trampling on the true meaning and purpose of the First Amendment."--Jacket.
