Reviews

Here, at last, is an introductory book that grounds the study of pornography in theory and empirical research, discusses it in relation to industry, labour, technology, regulation and performance, and is thoroughly accessible and engaging. Sullivan and McKee s book will become the key text for anyone researching pornography, as well as those who are interested in sex, sexuality and media. Feona Attwood, Middlesex University Eschewing simplistic causal models, Sullivan and McKee offer a rich and nuanced exploration of pornographic entertainments. Their account recognizes pornography as part of the vast creative industry: neither good nor bad, neither necessarily transgressive nor oppressive. Instead, they interrogate the multiple valences of sexual representations, their production and consumption, in the twenty-first century. Sullivan and McKee offer an engaging and critical approach to this polarizing topic and, like the very best scholars, open up multiple directions for future research. Clarissa Smith, University of Sunderland
