Ursula Biemann, Writing Desire (2000)
Electronic communication technologies challenge the boundaries between private fantasy and the public sphere. In this compressed electronic space, the notion of the self undergoes transformations that also affect questions of boundaries, gender, and sexual
relations. Writing Desire links the creation of romantic desire through writing to the production of desire in consumer culture.
The bride market in general, and the virgin market in particular, are evidence of the
capitalisation on sexual relation on the Internet. russian.bride.com, tigerlilies.com, and blossoms.com are among the many sites which advertise large numbers of women from the former Soviet Union and the Philippines to the global male community.
