Chinese artists, activists, and netizens are pioneering a new order of pornographic representation that is in critical dialogue with global entertainment media. Jacobs examines the role of sex-positive feminists and queer communities to investigate pornography's "afterglow" (a state of crisis and decay within digital culture).

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Jacobs is the foremost scholar on Chinese pornography, especially in the field of female consumption of pornography. This book builds upon her previously published work but seeks to both both interrogate recent shifts in pornographic consumption and production and revisit some longer-standing themes from her earlier work. By placing pornography within this specific geographical and critical-theoretical landscape, this work breaks new ground and will have a significant impact on the fields of porn studies, LGBTQ studies, and visual culture studies." Sharif Mowlabocus, Senior Lecturer, University of Sussex, UK

"The Afterglow of Women's Pornography in Post-Digital China envisions women's pornography as an imagined civil society that starts taking into account sexual difference, sex-positive feminisms, and various developments towards queer aesthetics. This book brilliantly documents the attitudes of disobedience, emotionality, erotic consciousness and open discussion proposed by young Chinese women, both from Mainland China and Hong Kong, whose aesthetics on pornography constitute an important aspect of women's ongoing struggle for identity, equality and legitimacy." - Petula Sik Ying Ho, Associate Professor, The University of Hong Kong

"This book leads us through an intellectual and inspiring journey which wanders into the erotic lives of modern Chinese women. It challenges readers to reconsider the intricacies of different kinds of pornography, while reflecting on the emergence of a new civil society. The extraordinary ride into the hearts of women is full of surprising turns that will undoubtedly open up new debates." - Donna Chu, Associate Professor, School of Journalism and Communication, The Chinese University of Hong Kong
