Not a Love Story: A Film About Pornography is a documentary about the pornography industry. It was directed by Bonnie Sherr Klein in 1981, and released in 1982.

It remains one of the landmark works from the Studio D, the women's studio of the National Film Board of Canada. The film was banned in the province of Ontario on the basis of its pornographic content – a decision that was later reversed.[1][2]
