NICK ASKS: Voyeurism

From: Nick Bantock


It strikes me that since Griffin and Sabine first came out, the nature of voyeurism has changed slightly thanks to the popularity of real life TV. Are letters and diaries still considered sacred or are the barriers of privacy coming down? In G & S the reader is given tacit permission to view someone else's correspondence, hence the thrill of taboo braking. But have the rules of voyeurism changed? I'd like to know what you think.
