Book for Rockport Press

“Sex sells,” the cliché goes. But there’s much more to graphic design and sexuality. XXX explores visual communication systems with intelligent essays and lavish production. Gender issues, humor, romance, and the sex act itself—each subject is discussed by Plazm’s Sarah Dougher and fleshed out with images
from leading designers.

Written, designed, and curated by Plazm, the book features a silkscreened rubber cover and has been translated into multiple languages.It also inspired exhibitions at the Museum of Sex in New York and Western Oregon University.

Steven Heller wrote the introduction to the exhibits. Dan Savage wrote the foreword to the book.


We have a few signed first edition copies of the US edition with the silkscreened rubber cover available in the shop at $20 each.
