Hailed as "a paradigm shift in feminist responses to pornography" when first published in 1993, Dirty Looks was instantly lauded as a landmark volume. This new edition adds to the core of the original selection no less than eight new accounts of recent transformations in the politics and presentation of porn. Drawing on the radical work around gender, identity and sexuality within critical theory, the book continues to argue for the significance of porn in debates around gender, feminism, and masculinity and the importance of the topic in our understanding of issues of power and cultural identity. Above all, it insists on the categorical imperative and critical necessity to continue the study of an area with such immense symbolic and social significance.
This new extended edition with several specially commissioned contributions -including several now from male contributors-extends its coverage to include issues as diverse as: women's use of porn; transnational gay porn; lesbian webcam porn; the cultural and intellectual "economy" of porn; and the presence of genre and narrative in porn texts.
