Editorial Reviews

Review

A World Made Sexy is a clear and Lucid account of how sex came to permeate popular culture in the late twentieth century. Rutherford demonstrates considerable expertise in advertising history; nonetheless, the book is written for an interdisciplinary audience and should appeal to anyone interested in the question of why sexuality plays such a prominent role in commercial culture.’ (Kristen Hatch: Journal of the History of Sexuality, vol 20:02:2011)
