Evans as "a fascinating investigation" in the manner of Michel Foucault, of the "question of 'whether it is possible to construct a kind of pornography of the machine ... in which the encounter with the machine on its own terms is eroticized in a manner usually reserved for descriptions of sexual encounters' (163)."
