"Western culture is exhibiting its fascination with sex in new ways. Pole dancing is a form of keep fit, porn stars find work as agony aunts, pornography itself is just 'a mouse click away', and phone sex, email affairs and cybersex are now part of our everyday lives. This sexualization that is permeating every aspect of modern culture is the subject of this book ... Mainstreaming Sex uncovers the significant impact that new forms of sexualized phenomena are having on our culture, relationships, educational and working lives. In original chapters, the contributors engage with today's public concerns about sexualization, with the continuing debates about the regulation of sexual representations and practices, and with the idea that in all aspects of social and cultural life, sex is being 'mainstreamed'"--Jacket.
