This raises more issues than it can possibly consider in depth, but the filmmakers' ambition is admirable, as is their refusal to draw simple conclusions about any of the subjects.

An inquisitive and engaging documentary that attempts to sift through shifting mores and the sexual saturation of mass media, to determine the toll this seeming increase in titillation is taking on America.

Hopefully those who see the film will find it one that stimulates serious discussion about women and the pressures they face regarding sexuality, and that it doesn't wind up as yet another source of titillation for voyeuristic viewers.

Unevenly structured, the segments differ greatly in length and relevance.

Disorganized, poorly conceptualized documentary says porn and sexual imagery have become mainstream, but then forgets to say, "Oh, and here's what it might mean." Or maybe it just says it vaguely and badly.

The reality-cable-style approach tends to overstay its welcome and lessen the impact of each portrait, especially when it comes to New Yorker Winnifred's teen dramatics.

This scattershot investigation of the effects of Internet pornography on female behavior only ruffles the surface of a complex issue, one that demands a much larger sample than three white, educated women.

There might be something new to say about sex after all, and it's said in Sexy Baby, a snazzily edited documentary by Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus.

What Sexy Baby lacks in the way of sophisticated filmmaking it compensates for with an earnest insistence on open dialogue.
