'Contemporary art is sex... it's all about sex', Waters tells us in the introduction. And in the book he and Hainley have selected and carefully arranged a wide range of work, from startling graphic depictions of the body and sexual acts, to abstract images suggesting the erotic. Paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography and video - all find their place here. In a frank and often hilarious conversation, the authors talk about their selection and placing of the works. Along the way, they consider many of the issues raised by the art and discuss - with humour and seriousness alike - how it reflects attitudes towards sex and the body in today's world.
