Expanding on many of the ideas in her book, Roiphe discusses how restrictions on pornography could lead to more general censorship, while widespread access actually undermines pornography's fascination.

Umoja, the Village Where Men Are Forbidden [electronic resource]

In the Samburu district of Kenya, women have only the rights they can seize for themselves. To break free from spousal abuse, forced marriage, genital mutilation, and the spread of HIV/AIDS-and to defend themselves against rape by local British soldiers-a group of abandoned Samburu women founded Umoja, a village off-limits to men. Two decades on, the tiny community is thriving, but in a growing climate of menace as the Samburu men seek any means to destroy Umoja and reestablish the age-old status quo. Filmed on location, this program gives a voice to town matriarch Rebecca Lolosoli and other villagers who communicate their determination to remain free while painting a realistic picture of their uphill battle to establish gender equality in the region-and to simply survive.

Participants range from Trish, age 16 and the only virgin in the group, to 45-year-old Annee, who remembers hiding her feelings of triumph after her first lovemaking, to Pauline, an octogenarian who wistfully recalls losing her virginity-on her we [...]
