Les usages sociaux de la pornographie en ligne et les constructions de la masculinité

Abstract : From 19th century erotic postcards to 21th century online browsing, sexually explicit viewing practices have become everyday life practices. Based on an audience reception study conducted in Paris, this PhD dissertation investigates the material and cultural contexts through which gay and heterosexual male uses of digital pornography operate. The study consists in in-depth interviews with 34 viewers, combined with the replication of their online sexual meanderings. It examines the cultural practices of browsing and clicking, watching and listening, saving and archiving, sharing and expressing, reimagining and reflecting upon. These practices shape homosocial sociability, domestic space-time and, most importantly, sexual subjectivity. Affective intensities and cultural representations at work in domestic autosexual practices are situated within larger patterns of masculinity and gender relations. Comparison between expressions of sexual manliness in gay and heterosexual contexts is a way of getting hold of current reconfigurations within hegemonic masculinity.
