25 Years Later, Madonna's 'Sex' Book Is Still Pop's Most Radical Moment
Sex by Madonna, First Edition - AbeBooks
There seems to be a problem serving the request at this time. This sex book shocked many people in various areas around the world because of its very sexual nature. While some people may say that it is artistic, images show a partially or mostly nude Madonna in various sexual positions. For example, one image shows her masturbating, and another image suggestively indicates that a man is performing oral sex on her. While this fictional work may not be educational, it may help some people to learn more about sex and eroticism.
Published with the principal aims of publicity and to shock, this was Madonna in her prime, at her most provocative, her most mischievous. Here she actively confronts convention and sexual mores using mostly images of herself and photos of her with various celebrities including Isabella Rosselini, Vanilla Ice, Naomi Campbell, and Big Daddy Cane. Original spiral bound aluminum boards, with title stamped into upper cover, and cut-out symbol of an "X" at center of lower cover.
Twenty-five years ago, Madonna put the world in a trance with the release of Sex. Of course, because it was mainstream art promoting libidinous pleasure, a puritanical outcry followed. Many critics, cultural theorists and fans alike found the BDSM-themed photo collection scandalizing, even repulsive. In their eyes, Madonna, who already faced accessions of overexposure following a decade of chart-topping provocations, had crossed the line. Michael Jackson had been grabbing his crotch for years, and Prince wore an assless pantsuit to the MTV Video Music Awards, but women were only allowed to push so many buttons.
