The book has since become one of the most sought-after out-of-print books ever released and still remains the fastest-selling coffee table book of all time.
According to Giselle Benatar of Entertainment Weekly, there are two versions of how Madonna came up with the idea for the book.
Due to the scandalous nature of the photographs and the media mayhem surrounding it from the initial preview of the book, Madonna did not have to promote Sex, except for a pre-release party and some television specials.
Her publishers were extremely apprehensive about the release as well as its commercial potential.
The photographs were stolen before publishing, but were quickly recovered.
The book had a range of influences, from punk rock to earlier fashion iconoclasts such as Guy Bourdin, Helmut Newton and Robert Mapplethorpe.
The packaging for the book is made of aluminium, which was Madonna's idea, and is spiral bound and enclosed in a Mylar sheet.Since by contract she had total artistic control over any of the work released by Maverick, the agreement she signed with Time Warner concerning what not to do in Sex became obsolete.The book was also influenced by Robert Mapplethorpe's infamous three-part XYZ portfolio, particularly the X portfolio, with Madonna even having considered the latter as a title during the formative stages of Sex.AUSTRALIA ABC News May 1, 2018 By court reporter Emma Younger Australia's most senior Catholic, Cardinal George Pell has pleaded not guilty to multiple historical sexual offence charges after being committed to stand trial.Magistrate Belinda Wallington committed Cardinal Pell to stand trial on some counts, but she has discharged more than half the original charges, including the most serious allegations.
