Sex for real: Constructions of Sexual Identities on the Internet
The growth in visual communication technologies
has significantly changed the possibilities for authorship within
various visual regimes, including that of visual pornography.
How has the availability of means of self expression affected
the images being produced within visual pornography? What sexual
identities are being performed on the Internet? My presentation
will discuss constructions of gender and sexual identity through
focusing on the problematic notion of ‘amateurism’
within historical as well as contemporary visual pornography.
