Madonna celebrates the 30th anniversary of her book ‘Sex’ in a sulphurous way

The most controversial book of the 90s and paradoxically, the most coveted by Americans, is still being talked about 30 years after its publication. This book, launched in limited edition, had created a real scandal. Sex includes many erotic photographs of the singer, but also of the model Naomi Campbell, actress Isabella Rossellini, gay porn star Joey Stefano and rappers Big Daddy Kane and Vanilla Ice. Printed in more than 150,000 copies for the release of his album Eroticawe can see sensual photos, but also raw sex scenes, sadomasochistic, bestial and sometimes with religious connotations.

According to Konbini, for the puritan America of the 1990s, critics saw in it merely a display of an awakening female sex and disgusting lesbians. Two decades later, some media will recognize that Sex will have had a significant impact on pop culture and will even be considered, by some researchers, as an important and “honest” from the post-feminist movement.

Later, the pop icon will admit that his intention was to “liberate america” and of challenge sexual taboos. We live in a society of repression (ssexual) and I’m talking about erotic themes. Why should we feel ashamed of our sexuality?” she said.

Just recently, Madonna reflected on the cultural impact of her book in an Instagram post. “I also wrote about my sexual fantasies and shared my views on sexuality in an ironic way. I spent the next few years being interviewed by narrow minded people who tried to shame me for empowering me as a Woman.. I have been called a whore, a witch, a heretic and a devil. Now Cardi B can sing on her WAP. Kim Kardashian can cover any magazine with her bare ass and Miley Cyrus can land like a wrecking ball,” her Madgesty continues. “You’re welcome, bi-es.”, reports Billboard.
