Overview

Exploring female sexuality from a cultural studies perspective, this book acknowledges women's diverse sexual desires and pleasures. Arguing that mass media has advanced beyond most feminist theory to consider the reality of female sexuality, it disregards the notion that women who actively want or seek out sex are in some way unfeminine or even masculine. Instead, it presents a more accurate and powerful picture of female sexuality. Topics include the ethics and nature of heterosexuality, sex and violence, fetishes, straight feminism, experts versus sexperts, and many more.

Author Biography: Kath Albury is currently completing her Ph.D. in media and communications and works as a freelance writer and broadcaster, focusing on sexuality and popular culture. Her research has been presented at a number of conferences including the University of California's World Pornography Conference.
