Pornography is increasingly infiltrating various aspects of our lives. Most often in discussing this 'pornification' (Paul, 2005), we raise examples that we can easily see and recognise: fasion, art, advertising, television shows, movies. But pornography is also infiltrating areas which are not so obvious in everyday, public life, from the business practices of global corporations (Davies and Wonke 2000; Lane, 2000; Rich, 2001) to the sex practices of our intimate relationships (Dines, 2010; Haggstrom-Nordin et al., 2005; Paul 2005; Tyden and Rogala, 2003, 2004).
