All About Pleasure: The Politics of Arousal

Pornography.  You know it when you see it, right?  It's the stuff that's created to arouse you.  But is that the only entertainment that targets our natural instincts and vulnerabilities?  Today at Erotica Readers and Writers Association blog, in All About Pleasure: The Politics of Arousal, I discuss how literary and mainstream fiction also manipulate our emotions and our sexual desire, for often less than noble purposes, and why they get away with it.

It's a provocative topic, and I'd be curious what you think!
