9780340614280: Mediated Sex: Pornography and Postmodern Culture (Hodder Arnold Publication)

Mediated sex is about the proliferation of sexual discourse in all its variants, from pornography as narrowly defined to the "s/m chic" of advertising and the art of Jeff Koons and Madonna. It examines the place of these representations in late-20th century, post-HIV and AIDS culture, and in the context of the history of sexual representation from Greek antiquity onward. With extensive reference to examples drawn from the US and the UK, Mediated Sex attempts to make sense of and assess the many contradictory and conflicting claims made about the impact of sexual representation on individuals and societies. those

About the Author:

Brian Mcnair, Senior Lecturer in Film and Media Studies, Stirling University.

Review:


"In his impressively wide ranging and level-headed overview of sex and its representation, Brian McNair boldly... and very productively... goes where few feminist cultural theorists would dare to tread. Students of cultural studies, of sociology and of women's studies will find Mediated Sex a most valuable addition to the literature."--Annette Kuhn, University of Glasgow
