Porn has become rather raunchy over the past few decades. Bernadette Barton has studied the sex industry for over 25 years and has studied how raunch culture has grown over the past few decades from the male gaze to porn with more and more violence. If you've ever been uncomfortable receiving unsolicited dick pics, or thought some porn took things a little too far then you are not alone.

In her book, The Pornification of America, she helps us articulate the trends so that we can start having discussions about raunch culture and combat certain trends that are increasingly showing up in everything to the point we are becoming desensitized to it.

But first, hear Leah make Kurtis increasingly uncomfortable discussing porn.
