Pornocracy (Semiotext by Catherine Breillat
"A beautiful woman enters a gay discotheque where she encounters a curious man who will follow her and spend three evenings exploring sexual brutality. Sounds like the plot of an erotic thriller guaranteed to tease and please, but was instead the s..." Read more of this review »
Pornocracy (Semiotext by Catherine Breillat
"This beyond pretentious pile has me wanting to avoid anything emblazoned with Breillat's name for some time. Reads like the journals of a first year Women's Studies major shooting for "transgressive" but lands somewhere between eye-rolling and inf..." Read more of this review »

I am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because 'romantic' doesn't mean 'sugary.' It's dark and tormented — the furor of passion, the despair of an idealism that you can't attain.Catherine Breillat

Christine made a comment in the group Vampire WomenVampire Book Reviews topic
"I really liked Twins of evil. These new Hammer novelizations have been hit or miss, this was - mostly - hit, keeping the original Hammer Gothic charm. "

Jessica Valenti
“For women especially, virginity has become the easy answer- the morality quick fix. You can be vapid, stupid, and unethical, but so long as you've never had sex, you're a "good" (i.e. "moral) girl and therefore worthy of praise.”
Jessica Valenti, The Purity Myth: How America's Obsession with Virginity is Hurting Young Women

Luis Sepúlveda
“It was the purest love without purpose other than love itself. Without tenure or jealousy.”
Luis Sepúlveda, The Old Man Who Read Love Stories

Naomi Wolf
“A cultural fixation on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty but an obsession about female obedience.”
Naomi Wolf

Jessica Valenti
“The desirable virgin is sexy but not sexual. She's young, white, and skinny. She's a cheerleader, a babysitter; she's accessible and eager to please (remember those ethics of passivity!). She's never a woman of color. SHe's never a low-income girl or a fat girl. She's never disabled. "Virgin" is a designation for those who meet a certain standard of what women, especially young women, are supposed to look like. As for how these young women are supposed to act? A blank slate is best.”
