Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Canadian documentary filmmaker Bonnie S. Klein (Speaking Our Piece) takes an uncompromising look at the adult film industry in Not a Love Story. Like prostitution, the participation in the making of hard-core pornographic films is considered a victimless crime. Klein argues that this is not the case, and to prove her thesis she offers case studies of unfortunate young women whose lives were ruined by working in X-rated films. Among many other pitfalls, the dangers of contacting communicable diseases is discussed herein; ironically, the AIDS epidemic was still a few years in the future. Amplifying Klein's argument are such renowned feminists as Kate Millett and Robyn Morgan.
