Money Shot: a journey into porn and censorship focuses on the ‘hot button’ issues in the censorship debate today, from the implications of the internet revolution to arguments about ‘raunch culture’ and its effects. In the best traditions of literary non-fiction, Sparrow immerses himself in the topic, undertaking a course in how to censor, visiting imprisoned pornographers, or attending church services for born-again virgins. He also interviews key players in the debate (representatives of the Classification Board, the Eros Foundation, Electronic Frontiers Australia, the Australian Christian Lobby) and interacts with those at the coal-face of the debates, from morals crusaders to sex workers, from vice cops to terrorists. This book also significantly broadens the scope of the current discussion. It suggests that both pornography and censorship need to be understood alongside thirty years of neoliberalism, a doctrine that has transformed how we see both the state and ourselves. Importantly, Money Shot also argues that many of the issues raised by censorship and pornography manifest themselves in other contemporary political controversies, from the war on terror to the Northern Territory Intervention.
