In this chapter, Jones examines the moral and philosophical implications of representations that place the body in extreme states of sexualised deconstruction-both real and faked-and how these apply to images and communities in cyberspace. The attention is primarily focused on shock sites, the collectives that use them, and their potentially problematic negotiations of viewer consent. However, we must begin with a dissection of what constitutes the "extreme" imagery of shock sites and the socio-political implications of its definition.
