Reviews

"An intriguing exploration of user-generated pornography, erotically-charged art, and changing sexual practices in Hong Kong and mainland China. "People's Pornography" goes beyond the well-known facts of China's attempts to censor the Internet to the often humorous and inventive efforts of Chinese netizens to jump the Great Firewall."--Clarissa Smith, University of Sunderland, author of One for the Girls!
"Katrien Jacobs presents an engaging, sober, and controversial analysis of a pornographic culture caught among the equally fierce forces of government control, consumer culture's manipulation, the diffusive nature of the Internet, and the citizens' own conflicting desires. Anyone interested in China will find this book informative and eye-opening."--Laikwan Pang, Chinese University of Hong Kong
"Katrien Jacobs is among the most curious and innovative writers on the topic of sexuality and technology working today. Most research on pornography and the Internet has focused on the West, so "People's Pornography" is a very welcome addition to our understanding of both these areas. Jacobs's book is a fascinating examination of sex, citizenship, and politics."--Feona Attwood, Sheffield Hallam University
