ABSTRACT
One of the features of the transition to democracy in Poland has been a marked liberalization of access to material about sexual relations. Although there had been important delopments in the 1970s and 1980s, these had been limited to certain contexts rather than finding a mass audience. Since 1989, the character of popular literature had changed considerably. The relationship between sex and human relationships is examined through reports of various surveys and media content analyses. The secular media are contrasted with those targetted specifically at a Catholic readership. The growth of erotic interest amoung women is particularly noted. However, there remain tensions between the public discourse of a model based on the imagined world of Western Europe and the actual behaviour of ordinary Polish men and women.
