Editor reviews

Ben Shapiro’s Porn Generation: How Social Liberalism Is Corrupting Our Future is a serious-minded treatise on morality, sexuality, and the modern era which attempts to coral a wide variety of statistics, trends, and anecdotal evidence into a cohesive commentary on West’s so-called "porn generation", and the social mores that define the lives of young Americans today.
Andrew Sweeney’s performance perfectly complements the academic tone of this extremely thought-provoking conservative work; his reading is calm and measured, but eminently listenable, and he guides the listener through Shapiro’s arguments with great grace. An interesting and engrossing contribution to the ongoing debate on modern American cultural values.

Summary

Talkin’ about my generation? It’s the Porn Generation
It’s everywhere, from commercials to New York Times best-sellers to college (and even younger) classrooms. In fact, pornography has become such a part of normal life in 21st century America that many teens and twenty-somethings have had no more important influence. They are the porn generation, where life’s expectations come from Mouseketeer pop tarts, Victoria’s Secret, internet titillation, and condom-flogging sex education.
Tom Wolfe’s novel Charlotte Simmons told part of the story - but in Porn Generation it’s for real. Ben Shapiro speaks as a member of this generation, and the tale he has to tell is a shocking perspective on life in an age where moral relativism reigns on college campuses, oversexed narcissism rules the airwaves, and purity is the new sin. In Porn Generation you’ll learn:


How porn producers see themselves as shaping and taking over Mainstreet U.S.A.
The real face of taxpayer-funded sex education: nine-year-olds learning about condoms; twelve-year-olds being questioned about their "sexual orientation"
The new collegiate do’s (accepting "sexile") and don’ts ("dormcest")
How Hollywood and TV have mainstreamed pornography: why porn stars now turn up regularly on television and in glossy ads - and why celebrities imitate porn stars Mamas, don’t let your daughters grow up to be co-eds: why on college campuses - and throughout the porn generation - sexual relationships are as disposable as used condoms
Is there any good news? Yes. A lifestyle of playing pimps and hos - even if dressed up in preppie clothing - can only last so long before disease, despair, and depression set in - and many in the porn generation are beginning to wake up to their tragedy. Ben Shapiro closes Porn Generation with a roundtable discussion that brings together the diverse perspectives of columnist and bestselling author Michelle Malkin, Dallas Morning News op-ed editor Rod Dreher, former Princeton chaplain Father C. J. McCloskey III, and columnist and best-selling author David Limbaugh to discuss how bad things have become and what the prospects are for bringing the porn generation back from the brink. Porn Generation is the book that will define this generation - and provide a warning for generations to come.

How the Descent into Sexuality Has Hurt Us

Would you listen to Porn Generation again? Why?

I would perhaps use it as an academic source, but I am not sure I would listen to it again for fun.

The narrator isn't a particularly good one, and the editing isn't helping.

That said, the actual content of the book was deep, well-researched, and well-sourced. It does suffer from the assumption that this book will be read by someone with little knowledge of American culture, and yet is difficult to penetrate without that knowledge. As a Brit, many things simply didn't quite ring with me, but the general subject matter did touch me as another inhabitant of the Christian Western developed world.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Andrew Bernays?

I would not pick another book by Andrew Bernays because he narrated it, and I would pick another narrator if the option is there. Andrew is serviceable, but not notable, and his performance here isn't particularly great.

However, his tone matches the tone of the book, and that is to be commended.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The book covers the education system, media system, and so on, with the effects on the youth and children of American society, as well as the increase of electronic consumption and the effects of the Internet on the generation Ben speaks about.

It has made me consider my attitudes about how I will raise my children, and how I shall hope to guide their future.

Any additional comments?

I would really recommend this book to be read, but the Audible is fair enough.

Im a leftist and i loved it

Ben Shapiro continuously impressed me throughout the book seeing as all his arguments were backed up my solid data. There are sometimes where it is noticeable that the data is skewed a bit to favor Ben's arguments which is why I gave it a 4 instead of 5 star rating.

Listen to it, or read it, but don't neglect it

Absolutely eye opening. A must read, or listen for everyone. It will provide you with more knowledge and a greater understanding of why American entertainment's standards have fallen, and some suggestions on how to bring back, or raise those standards again.

The narrator was generally good, but there were a few small parts where he seemed... Uninteresting, or unappealing for lack of better words to describe it. But overall he was very good, and I'd listen to him again.
