Overview

Waskul (sociology, Minnesota State U., Mankato) and contributors offer 17 perspectives on sexual behavior on the Internet. They include perceptions of participants about their bodies and identities; the influence of a post-industrial, narcissistic and technological culture on expressions of sexuality; attempts to academically and ethically validate pornography given the singularities of the Internet; redefinition of deviance, infidelity and sexual exploitation; attraction, gender, racial, and cultural issues; the growth and power of the Internet porn industry; and the future of sexual behavior on the Internet. Some of the essays include references, but the volume does not include an index. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
