Sex came

Sex was released alongside her fifth studio album Erotica, which went on sale a day earlier.The book was an instant commercial success, managing to sell over 150,000 copies on its first day of release and topping the New York Times Best Seller list.Madonna, however, was forced to sign a contract that forbade her from showing child pornography, bestiality and religious imagery.Not long after signing this agreement Madonna founded Maverick, a multi-media entertainment company.According to Baron, during the photo shoots "[Madonna]'d do something crazy and then we'd come up with something even crazier".

One morning during the four-day Florida shoot Madonna was prancing around her 14-bedroom house in Miami completely naked, when someone jokingly suggested she go out on the street, then, according to Baron "the next thing we're in the street" where allegedly "cars screeched to a halt, motorists whistled, and one entranced cyclist fell off his bike." This was just one of the many crazy episodes that took place during the shooting of the book.Madonna changed her mind about the title being X, when Spike Lee's film Malcolm X began to be promoted (the film was released three weeks after the book).She would go on to tell Vogue magazine: "We were gonna call it X [...] but then the whole thing with the Malcolm X movie started.Sex has photographs that feature adult content and softcore pornographic as well as simulations of sexual acts, including sadomasochism.Madonna wrote the book as a character named "Mistress Dita", inspired by 1930s film actress Dita Parlo.
