Cyber Sexy: Rethinking Pornography

01 June 2018

Richa Kaul Padte

This is an intimate and empathetic account of online sex cultures. Padte challenges the assumption that porn has a single, knowable definition, claiming that “One man’s art is another woman’s erotica is another person’s sex tape.” Considering webcam models and fan-fiction writers, homemade videos and violations of consent, the author contemplates what it means to seek out pleasure in online spaces.
