The chapter 28 article about pornography/anti-pornography reminded me of a documentary I once watched. It was called Inside Deep Throat and it was about the porn film titled Deep Throat and how it started a sexual revolution in the 1970's. The female lead actress in Deep Throat, Linda Lovelace, claimed to have been coerced/forced to make the film. She claimed that her boyfriend at the time held a gun to her head and threatened her life if she did not make the film. People of the anti-pornography stance claim that pornography is violent and women must be forced to do some of the things featured in porn because what sane woman would participate on their own? If Linda Lovelace's claims of being forced into porn are true, then they prove that the anti-pornography people are correct in saying that sometimes women are forced into the porn industry.
