Sexuality in Pornography Consumption

by linwanwan

This has been in my mind since I was a teenager.  Now I may have the resources to do an analysis with subjects, albeit it’s a slightly different purpose than the one I would have intended.

The analysis of the local pornography in correspondence to gender relations, the vision of fantasy and sexuality, the repression, within each different culture and local.

The creation of footage, although it now may seem more of an art project because this is split into three possible prototypes, the one of which others would be most interested is mainstream in number 1.

 

(1) The first would be to please others, the actual mass stream sale.  This would be in relation to what the viewer deems as sexually arousing and maximize those efforts throughout the film.  Analysis of sexuality and arousal.  Arousal expected.

(2) The second would be applying this juxtaposition into a footage that is alluring, wrong, yet arousing.  A guilt but there is nothing truly amiss on the screen.  There are no generic taboos explored in the film itself but something that truly perturbs human nature looms.  Arousal is seeked.

(3) The third would be a marriage between the literal text and application on screen.  “Eating” “Blowing” with the setup in a cold skimpy room.  Pure art, arousal is secondary.

 

Further questions :

Would what be seen as sexually arousing simply be what society has deemed to be so? For example there are standards for a goodlooking woman, but are there so of a goodlooking man as much?    Further analysis and by far more interesting would be taken the further step of how this then interrelates to the viewer’s reality and ask the question why. Leaves the open question of why and how this relates to the cultural realities of sexual genders, advertisements, attractive identities that surrounds them. For example, why would heterosexual women find gay male sex films ‘disgusting’ while lesbian pornography arousing? Is this due to a patriarchal society’s acceptance and the male ideal telling women that “this is sexy” and therefore women have someone internalized this arousal into reality?

Looking foward.
