Written by Madonna, photographed by Steven Meisel, designed by Fabien Baron, and edited by Glenn O'Brien, SEX was influenced by punk rock and fashion figures including Guy Bourdin, Helmut Newton and Robert Mapplethorpe. Shot in early 1992 in New York City and Miami, in locations including hotels, burlesque theaters, and city streets, the book includes cameos by actress Isabella Rossellini, rappers Big Daddy Kane and Vanilla Ice, model Naomi Campbell, gay porn star Joey Stefano, actor Udo Kier, and socialite Princess Tatiana von Fürstenberg. SEX was released on October 21, 1992, the day after Madonna's fifth studio album Erotica and includes a CD single of “Erotic.”
