'Sex, Technology and Public Health is an interdisciplinary text, which will appeal to anyone working within health care, media studies, sociology or politics. One of the book's best qualities is its readability on a number of levels, feeding both the research interests of experts in this field, while remaining accessible to new readers interested in examining these very current social topics...This is essential reading for anyone interested in such forms of communication.' - The Kelvingrove Review
