PORN & PONG: HOW GRAND THEFT AUTO, TOMB RAIDER, AND OTHER SEXY GAMES CHANGED OUR CULTURE

Damon Brown



 

No book until Porn & Pong has explored how pornography and video games have influenced America’s sexual mores and technological compulsions on a massive scale.


The first Atari systems and their phallic joysticks began to sell by the million along with the rise of the VCR and the modern porn industry. Reality TV skyrocketed the same year as The Sims, and the surgically endowed Pamela Anderson was only outshined by one other woman: Lara Croft.


Porn & Pong’s publication comes at the time of the release of several highly anticipated adult-oriented games, including a new Leisure Suit Larry, Tomb Raider, and the sequel to the most controversial video game of all time, Grand Theft Auto. Author Damon Brown examines how politics, hidden agendas, and financial pressure affect the controversial art forms of gaming and pornography.
