Long before Lady Gaga crafted her book of 350 black-and-white photos with Terry Richardson, Madonna unleashed her scandalous watercooler tome Sex. And even though it was released nearly 19 years ago (and coincided with Madge’s aptly-titled 1992 album Erotica), it turns out the Material Girl’s naughty coffee table offering has topped Bookfinder.com‘s annual fall list of the 100 most sought-after out-of-print titles in the United States.
“The list differs from year to year as trends change and books get republished,” Bookfinder.com notes in the ninth annual installment of its Fall Report. The site also refers to Sex as “Madonna’s nearly perennial number one” on the list.
However, before you go rushing to snatch up a copy of Madge’s sexy collection of pics, keep in mind that sealed copies are currently going for as much as $329.99 on eBay.
Below is the video for the first single/title track off Madonna’s Erotica album, which reached #3 on the Hot 100 in fall 1992. The clip contains many images found in the singer’s Sex book (i.e. much cheaper to watch than buy the book itself).
Oh, and needless to say, the vid is pretty much NSFW.
