Praise

“Even if the meaning of the mysterious title is only revealed at the end, after some carefully maintained intellectual suspense, that of the subtitle is quickly understood. Via the theme of pornography, it is modernity itself, with all its inadequacies and contradictions, which is explored throughout this ambitious and brilliant book. For pornography (whether looked at in terms of production or consumption) exemplifies the logic of excess which characterizes out times.”—Marc Auge, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris

“This informed and intelligent study of pornography as a product and expression of modernity is one of the few to approach the subject with wit, good nature and apparent disinterest.”—Harriet Gilbert, editor of The Sexual Imagination
