Reviews

"This title is a unique voice in the conversation on the ubiquity of pornography in Western culture (focused on Australia, parallels to the US are obvious). Mulholland . . . returns agency to a group of teenagers with whom she conducted discussion-based activities: allowing teens to speak about the sexualization of their own culture offers readers a generalized view into how teens view, interact with, and police pornography and sexualized media on their own . . . Mulholland placed her research in historical context, examining the shifting boundaries of normality and appropriateness regarding the illicit, and the current panic trends." - CHOICE

"This book will challenge you to think not only about the debates on pornography, but also about the very boundaries of the public, the private, the sexual, and the normal. It provides a substantive challenge to all we take for granted." - Beverley Skeggs, Professor of Sociology, Goldsmiths College, UK

"This original and highly readable book offers a fascinating insight into young people's relationships with sexually explicit media. Avoiding clich├ęs about the 'pornification' of culture, Monique Mulholland makes a clear and convincing argument about shifts in the way young people understand sex and sexiness, and how their ideas of private and public are changing." - Feona Attwood, Professor, Cultural Studies, Communication & Media, Middlesex University, UK
