Summary
Sex dolls, AI, designer wombs, pregnancy in your 50s, cryonics, men's cosmetics, labiaplasty, and hedge fund investing in eating disorder clinics: the territory of the body is changing. The future seems to promise designer bodies and morphological 'freedom'. But the body is still where we live, and it is in trouble. Girls as young as six play with cosmetic surgery apps. Men take steroids and compromise their fertility. Compulsive exercise, unproven wellness trends, and growing epidemics of cutting, anorexia, bulimia and troubled eating tell us that the body is under extreme assault. In this updated edition, Susie Orbach applies her thesis to the developments in the the war on our bodies. We can no longer accept ourselves as we are, but must work to manufacture a body. And body distress is causing mental distress. Now, more than ever, we need a new approach to this devastating problem
