Overview
In 1946, American judge Potter Stewart famously said, 'I can't define pornography, but I know it when I see it.' Over seventy years later, the reverberations of this sentence are still felt across the world. From proposed porn bans to religious morality to women's rights, the assumption is that porn has a single, knowable definition. But if one man's pornography is another woman's erotica is another person's sex tape, what really counts as porn? And who gets to do the counting? In this alternative conversation around digital sexual expression in India, Richa Kaul Padte takes readers on an intimate tour of the sexy internet. From camgirls to fanfiction writers, homemade videos to consent violations, Cyber Sexy is an unflinching deep dive into the messy terrain of what it means to seek out pleasure online. The question of whether or not something counts as porn is, ultimately, left up to the reader. After all, you'll know it when you see it, right?
