Summary: This second edition adds to the core of the original selection no less than eight new accounts of more recent transformations in the politics and presentation of pornography. Drawing on the radical work around gender, identity and sexuality within critical theory, the book continues to argue for the significance of pornography 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.
