Sex Magazine is an independent online-culture publication based in New York. Designed for the web, and completely free, Sex has acted as a real-time archive for a spectrum of creative ideas. The list of artists, designers, musicians, writers, and photographers featured in these digital editions reads like a yearbook of some of the most influential forces of the post-internet era. Published by powerHouse Books.

Inspired by the independent magazine renaissance at the turn of the millennium, (Index, Butt, Made in USA) Sex sought to cultivate its own culture, channeling the digital-native, lo-fi aesthetic of an unregulated internet. Almost entirely interview based, the stories collected in Sex are honest, accessible, and non-academic, giving a direct voice to alternative attitudes and approaches towards both art and life.
Sex Magazine: #1-10 2012–2015 collects the first ten issues of Sex in print for the first time—a physical testament to the influential power of the web and an unrivaled account of art and culture at the coming of age of the new millennium.
Sex Magazine is available for pre-order here, and will ship after the event date.
