"The proposal for Not a Love Story, which was given the NFB nod to proceed by one solitary vote, was a hasty bid for year-end, unearmarked production funds. Although planning a leave of absence, Bonnie Klein submitted the proposal because of a gut-level feeling that women needed to break untold silences about pornography on a broad scale. She noticed how friends' eyes lit up and nostrils flared when she broached the topic, and also how long-repressed feelings and testimonials would eventually come flooding out. This was Klein's market research."
