Reviews

""Overexposed" is a most remarkable work . . . A brilliant piece of undercover reporting, from the strangest of strange lands."--J.G. Ballard
" "Overexposed" is a most remarkable work ... A brilliant piece of undercover reporting, from the strangest of strange lands." --J.G. Ballard
" The sexualization of postwar American culture has produced results that would astonish Freud, Reich, or even Kinsey. Modern techniques of behavior modification now cast doubt on the sources of individual eroticism. "Overexposed" is an engrossing description of sexual conditioning condoned by the state. A fascinating book." --William Burroughs
" "Overexposed" is a voyage through hell. A gleaming, air-conditioned, sanitary, and polite hell where a triumphant psychotechnology replaces the old-fashioned shackles of the Law and 'cures' the sex-offender by boring to death his desire. Sylvรจ re Lotringer's account of this charnel house of behaviorisim is deft, witty, and precise." --Joel Kovel
