XXX: A Womanʼs Right to Pornography is a book written in 1995 by Wendy McElroy in which the author tries to undo the damage done to the feminist and womenʼs liberation struggles by anti-pornography and other anti-sex activists (who claim that to be a feminist is to be anti-pornography).

The book is very pro-sex-worker, and does not try to speak on behalf of them, but rather to allow them to speak for themselves, bringing forth as many differering opinions as was possible. The book is full of quotes of what pornography directors, actors/actresses, and other sex workers said; it also includes survey of COYOTE members.

Several times Wendy McElroy shares her realisations that she was incorrect in some of her assumptions, allowing the reader to see how she herself has developed further as a result of writing this book. Nobody should read this unless they are ready to have their assumptions challenged.

The book is by no means anti-male; however, the author one at least one occasion states that as the book is not about how males were dealt with unjustly by the feminist movement at large, it will not be discussed there.

Unfortunately, the book is very much pro-capitalist; and the author did not see it as a problem to push the pro-capitalist agenda in there. For some reason ‘individualism’ is being equated with capitalism, and one must keep remembering that this is just an opinion of a single individual.
