The Lad is a book about pornography, and the Internet
Posted On June 13, 2021
The Lad, the first book about online pornography in the history of books, is coming out in March 2017.
The book is written by Michael L. D. Gans and was co-written with Mark K. Pfluger.
The Lad is the first online book about internet pornography.
In the book, the authors argue that internet pornography is a product of an age of “digital enslavement” where “we have the ability to control our own bodies, and that we are not in control of our own destiny, but rather the choices we make.”
The Lad tells the story of how porn was created by the internet, and how it’s taken advantage of us in the name of freedom.
“The internet is an insidious force that has taken over the world, turning people into slaves,” the book’s cover declares.
“This is how porn got started, and what it has become today.”
It’s also worth noting that the authors have written about how pornography is not just a product but a “monopoly on our time.”
The Lad claims that pornography is an “idea, an ideology, an idea that is all-consuming.”
It’s a vision that is “all-consuming” because “the internet makes it possible for people to control their own bodies and their own minds, to control what they see, and to control who they can see.”
“The web has become a totalitarian playground for people who want to dominate people and control them.”
While the book doesn’t explicitly claim that pornography has become so prevalent, it does state that the internet has become “an insidious force.”
As it turns out, the internet itself is the most insidious force on the planet, as it can be used to control the lives of billions of people.
The book is divided into three sections.
The first section is entitled “The Digital Age: What We Are Up Against,” which is about how porn is “the next evolution of domination.”
It argues that the future of porn lies in the new technology that’s “capturing the mind of the viewer.”
It goes on to say that the new internet will be used by people to “make and sell pornography, to make money from advertising, to sell sex, to create and exploit pornography.”
The second section is titled “The Internet of Things: A New Technology and the End of Pornography,” which argues that pornography will soon be “the dominant form of communication.”
This technology will allow us to “collect and analyze information, to analyze data, to build and deploy robots, to collect and store information on every person on the internet.”
This technology will also be used “to make and sell more and more pornography.”
The third section is “The Rise of the Porn Industry: The End of the Digital Economy,” which says that pornography “will no longer be about the sexual act but rather about control.”
In this new era, we are facing an opportunity to control people and to “manipulate their minds and bodies, to manipulate their emotions, to mold their identities and sexual fantasies.”
The authors state that “pornography is not a product, it’s a system of domination” and that the “end of pornography is the end of control.”
The end of porn “will not be a choice, but an act of domination and control.”
The book also claims that the rise of pornography has created a new “paradox” where people are “living in the shadow of their own porn addiction.”
It is a “paranoia that has become an epidemic.”
The book argues that people’s desire for porn “has led them to lose their control over their bodies, their own souls and their identity.”
It also argues that porn has become more “an ideology than a product” and argues that “there is no such thing as a free Internet, but there are free spaces online where we can talk about, critique and discuss the problems of our lives and the problems that surround us.”
It is worth noting here that this is also a very old argument that has been around for a long time.
In his 2000 book The New Culture of Porn, James B. Martin wrote that “the rise of the internet will eventually lead to the destruction of pornography.”
In addition, in a 2011 piece for The Huffington Post, “Pornography, the Internet and the Culture of Control,” the author said, “The new media will eventually replace pornography.”
In the first section of The Lad , the authors claim that the porn industry “has become the new ideology, the new market, the world of power.”
They state that it “has captured and controlled our minds, our souls, and our bodies.”
The fact that the book has a subtitle “The End of Pornography” makes it sound like it’s the final word on the subject.
However, it could just be that the end game is just starting.
There’s no indication that the movie or book will have any lasting impact on the industry, but we can still be thankful
