Sexual Consumerism: How We Buy and Sell Ourselves
Florence Gildea
Sex sells. It both sells us what we think we want, and it is sold to us. Sex, we are promised, carries the promise of being fulfilled, loved and whole. But when sex is in the hands of photoshop and pornography, the most intimate of spaces becomes yet another arena to perform and pretend.
