In GENERATION SEX, Luna bares all without blushing as we explore how technology has changed how we engage in sex, relationships, and the use of social media to broadcast identity politics and moral codes. Can we Instagram loneliness? Has Facebook replaced family? What is the art of seduction in a digital world that leaves little to the imagination? From sexting to Skype to online dating, the Ladies of Luna explode expectations about the search for love, satisfaction, and the new rules of feminism in 140 characters or less.
