Praise for After Pornified

"Anne G. Sabo offers one of the freshest and most articulate voices on the controversial issue of porn, bringing new insight in a voice that is eloquent, reasoned and accessible to all." Candida Royalle, iconic erotic film pioneer

"At last a book that appreciates female directed porn as the cultural phenomenon that it is."

Anne G. Sabo (Anne Sæbø), Ph.D., also known as Quizzical mama, is an academic slash public educator, author, speaker, freelance writer, and mama- and sex blogger.

My book After Pornified: How Women Are Transforming Pornography & Why It Really Matters (Zer0 Books, October 2012) has been rated a bestselling title on feminism. It has been reviewed “a goldmine for all sex-positive women and men,” and a “candid, well-informed personal story of how a good girl became involved in porn.” Based on more than ten years of research, After Pornified looks at the empowering potential of transformed feminist porn to free our minds and bodies from the demeaning imageries of our sex in today's sexualized culture and pornified media. 

I am also finishing a book on sleep parenting based on interviews with moms (The Sleep Question), and I am writing a memoir about when my husband came out as a woman (norsk: Når din mann kommer ut som dame).

Love, Sex, and Family is a resource site I founded devoted to progressive human sexuality information, featuring articles, news, book- and film reviews, and more as it pertains to our sexual lives in the broadest sense.

I write more about feminism and porn in my New porn by women blog, which accompanies After Pornfied. My Quizzical mama blog is an educated and personal approach to the politics and philosophies of parenting, often addressing controversial issues and reflecting on different cultural values and practices in the US and my native Norway.

The scope of my writing reflects my holistic approach to life. I don’t section parenting, work, sex, sleep, and relationship off from one another. They are all integral and integrated in my daily existence.

Anne G. Sabo is my author page and the mother ship of my writing. From here you can find out more about my philosophies of parenting and my approach to the politics of sex.

I hope you enjoy!
