C’Lick Me: A Netporn Studies Reader is an anthology that
collects the best materials of two years debate: from The Art and
Politics of Netporn conference held in 2005 in Amsterdam to the
2007 C’Lick Me festival. C’Lick Me opens the field of ‘Internet
pornology’. Based on non-conventional approaches, mixing
academics, artists and activists, the C’Lick Me Reader reclaims
a critical post-enthusiastic, post-censorship perspective on
netporn, a dark field that has been dominated thus far by dodgy
commerce and filtering. The C’Lick Me reader covers the rise of
the netporn society from Usenet underground to the blogosphere, analyses economic data and search engines traffic,
compares sex work with the work of fantasy, disability and
accessibility. The C’Lick Me reader also expands the notion of
digital desire, and smashes the predicatable boundaries of porn
debates, depicting a broader libidinal spectrum from fetish
subcultures to digital alienation, from code pornography to war
pornography. The reader concludes by re-contextualising the
queer discourse into a post-porn scenario.
