"Voyeurs are not hard to please. They want to look upon sex, sex parts, the settings of sex. They like their sex hot, cold, sweet, sour. They want it at night and in broad daylight, mysterious and seedy, sun-dappled and wholesome. Fundamentally, they want their pleasures snatched from the vine like stolen fruit. They want in another words to recapture the dizzying shock of sex in those early days when it was still new and dangerous and scary."--Luc Sante

From the Essay
Voyeurs are not hard to please. They want to look upon sex, sex parts,the settings of sex. They like their sex hot, cold, sweet, sour. Theywant it at night and in broad daylight, mysterious and seedy,sun-dappled and wholesome. They like it when celebrities are involved,and when the players are nobodies from nowheresville. Fundamentally,they want their pleasures snatched from the vine like stolen fruit. Theywant, in other words, to recapture the dizzying shock of sex in thoseearly days when it was still new and dangerous and scary.
-Luc Sante

Review:

The ideal gift for the person you want to stuff your stocking, this deliciously dirty book details the inherent relationship between voyeurism and photography from the 20s to today. Photographers from Atget to Mario Testino have caught friends, lovers and strangers in all stages of the act. Whether it's teenagers in a rec room or an unexpected flash of girl pie, these beautifully presented images are hotter than a yule log. -- Paper
