Finding space in the sex wars

The positions of 'sex positive' and its unnamed counterpart 'sex negative' exist as unhelpful abstractions. Distractions, when what we need to do is work in the space between to open out the feminist 'sex wars'.

Survey closed. Analysis open.

The survey has closed after 3 months with a total of 2,042 respondents showing a huge range in personal characteristics, positions on pornography, and individual experiences.

Porn as a lived relation

We are used to thinking about pornography as a product, text, or speech. Sometimes as a practice. But definitely as a distinct objective 'thing' that we, the living breathing subject, act on. We do not think of pornography as a lived relation, but this might be a useful way to start conceptualising it.

What do we know?

We don't know very much about women and pornography. We know even less from research conducted outside of laboratory studies. This is a little taster of what we know already.

Why women on porn?

There is a lack of attention paid to the range of women's views and experiences of pornography and their myriad relationships - as  users, refusers, and their myriad combinations over a woman's sexual biography - together. This project seeks to change that.
