Money Shot : A Journey into Porn and Censorship
Focusing on the 'hot button' issues in the censorship debate today--from the implications of the internet revolution to arguments about 'raunch culture' and its effects--this examination explores the politics of the adult industry in Australia. The book suggests that both pornography and censorship need to be understood alongside 30 years of neoliberalism, a doctrine that has transformed how Australians see both the state and themselves. Providing an inside look at the pornography industry with interviews of key players in the debate, this discussion argues that many of the issues raised by censorship and pornography manifest themselves in other contemporary political controversies, from the war on terror to the Northern Territory Intervention.
