The Politics of Sex: Prostitution and Pornography in Australia Since 1945
This political history of the sex industry in Australia cogently presents all sides of a complex and changing debate. It looks at how prostitution and pornography are regulated, and how debates about them are produced. Sullivan examines political and legal discourse in the broader societal context of changing attitudes to sexual conduct. Using a broad range of examples from newspapers to films to demographics, the book highlights questions of censorship and of literature vs. pornography. It also offers a critique of feminist debates.
