Title Porn work : sex, labor, and late capitalism / Heather Berg
Published Chapel Hill : University of North Carolina Press, [2021]


Description 1 online resource
Contents Porn feels different than it looks : porn work on set -- I was in love! And then it was over : authenticity work -- A scene is just a marketing tool : hustling in porn's gig economy -- I'm kind of always working, but it's also almost always really fun : porn and the boundaries between life and work -- Maybe the state should pay : sex, work, and the state -- Epilogue: Fuck jobs
Summary "Every porn scene is a record of people at work. But on-camera labor is only the beginning of the story. Part labor history, part ethnography illuminating the lives of the performers who work in the medium, 'Porn Work' takes readers behind the scenes to explore what porn performers think of their work and how they intervene to hack it. It tells a story of crafty workers, faltering managers, and shifting solidarities"-- Provided by publisher
