Gay Pornography : Representations of Sexuality and Masculinity, Hardback Book

Gay Pornography : Representations of Sexuality and Masculinity Hardback

Part of the Library of Gender and Popular Culture series

Description

Gay pornography, online and onscreen, is a controversial and significantly under-researched area of cultural production.

In the first book of its kind, Gay Pornography: Representations of Sexuality and Masculinity explores the iconography, themes and ideals that the genre presents.

Indeed, John Mercer argues that gay pornography cannot be regarded as one-dimensional, but that it offers its audience a vision of plural masculinities that are more nuanced and ambiguous than they might seem.

Mercer examines how the internet has generated an exponential growth in the sheer volume and variety of this material, and facilitated far greater access to it.

He uses both professional and amateur examples to explore how gay pornography has become part of a wider cultural context in which modern masculinities have become 'saturated' by their constantly evolving status and function in popular culture.
