Durham is working on a book, TechnoSex, which explores how new media technologies impact social understandings of the body as “cultural plastic,” as well as the ways in which technologies intersect with physicality in constituting new sexual subjectivities. While there has been a great deal of popular discourse on practices like ‘sexting,’ and amateur erotic video via YouTube, scholarship to date has not directly theorized the relationship between interactive media, corporealities, and sexual subjectivities.
