First off, I blurbed this book and have known Audacia for several years, and have been thrilled to see her career advance and grow. That being said, I expected Naked on the Internet to be about, well, getting naked on the internet. And it is...but it's also so much more. Instead of simply going the salacious route, Audacia Ray takes the knowledge she's gained from modeling online, doing sex work, blogging, editing a print mag about sex workers ($pread) and being an activist and used it to write a book that helps illuminate both the everyday (online dating, health information) and the fringes (people who not just get naked, but have, solicit, and sell sex of various kinds on the internet, for money).

She talks to women running their own businesses as well as women who've met lovers, friends, dates, and tricks online. She dishes the good, the bad, the ugly, the sexy, and the so-so, and offers resources where readers can find more information. If you're someone who already has their hands (or other body parts) in the world of online communication, this book will likely offer a sense of camaraderie, advice, questions to ask yourself and warnings. If you're someone who likes to look at and/or interact with naked women on the internet, I think this book will be especially illuminating, because the women she profiles share their real stories about everything from billing issues to safety concerns to staking their claim in what's often known as male territory. This is a behind-the-scenes look at the girl you might be talking to in a chatroom or negotiating with on Craigslist. Ray uses her insight to explore many topics that often go unreported or overlooked, and in the process humanizes women who are naked, literally and figuratively, on the internet.

I was trying to be witty, but opted for a one word title for the review. This book was really interesting. The author did some painstaking research to give a solid, historical background to what essentially was a part memoir and social history of sexploration on the internet from her viewpoint.

The audience for this book is wide: lay audience and university audience. This book would be really useful in a Media Studies/Communication course, Human Sexuality, Women's Studies, Technology and the like.

I read the book in one sitting this late morning/afternoon. One of the better parts of the book was the useful array of urls.

Her writing is clean and well-organized and I found myself engrossed. I was by a computer the entire time, when I read the book. I looked up some of the websites like Old Boys Network and their links, for instance.

If you're interested in sexploration on line, this book is definitely the book to read.

My wife Dawn Marie from Dawn Marie's Dream was interviewed for this book and I just read the section containing information about her. I have to say I was very pleased with what I read. It was well balanced and thoughtful. It's obvious that Ms. Ray did her homework and writes objectively of the Online Internet Adult scene.

If you participate in or are just interested in the Internet Adult community I recommend this book which covers almost every facet the scene.
