Mediated sex is an impressive book that covers a topic of pornography in the broader context of postmodern culture. It's very well written and readable, ideal for someone with basic knowledge of the subject. The book proposes complex research on the topic and can be used as a solid theoretical base for any further studies in the field of pornography, gender studies or mediated sex itself.
