Media are central to our experiences and understandings of sex, whether in the form of familiar 'mainstream' genres, pornographies and other sex genres, or the new zones, interactions and technosexualities made possible by the internet and mobile devices.

In this engaging new book, Feona Attwood argues that to understand the significance of sex media, we need to examine them in terms of their distinctive characteristics, relationships to art and culture, and changing place in society. Observing the role that media play in relation to sex, gender, and sexuality, this book considers the regulation of sex and sexual representation, issues around the 'sexualization of culture', and demonstrates how a critical focus on sex media can inform debates on sex education and sexual health, as well as illuminate the relation of sex to labour, leisure, intimacy, and bodies.

Sex Media is an essential resource for students and scholars of media, culture, gender and sexuality.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This sophisticated yet highly accessible book covers key issues in studies of sex, gender and media. Attwood tackles complex issues and divisive debates with admirable clarity and with an unfailing mastery of the content matter in what should be compulsory reading for students in media and gender studies internationally."
Susanna Paasonen, University of Turku

"Attwood's Sex Media offers a rich and nuanced account of the shifting landscapes of gender, sexuality and sexual representation. Cogent and well written - it is a perfect book for undergraduate seminars in gender and sexuality studies as well as communication studies."
Danielle Egan, St. Lawrence University
