Postfeminist sexpertise on the “porn and men issue”: A transnational perspective

By L. Favaro

Abstract

Focusing on women’s online magazines produced between 2012 and 2014 in the UK and in Spain, this chapter examines peer responses to women feeling distressed about their male partners’ consumption of pornographies, in addition to editorial content around the subject. Moving beyond ‘for and against’ positions, and driven by a social justice agenda, the chapter utilises this commentary about hetero-male- oriented pornographies as a point of analytical entry into the kinds of gendered and sexual pleasures, bodies, subjectivities and intimate relational possibilities contemporary (new) media and public sex and relationship advice bring into being and render (un)intelligible. In doing so, it seeks to contribute to feminist interrogations of the politics of mediated intimacy and pornification under neoliberalism and postfeminism, incorporating a much-needed transnational perspective
