The implications of pornification: pornography, the mainstream, and false equivalences

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter is concerned with how contemporary understandings of pornography and pornification limit the possibility and legitimacy of feminist critique. This comes from a long-standing frustration that some feminist disagreement about pornography derives from scholars working with different objects as pornography (Boyle 2000), and a newer frustration with the implications of ‘pornification’ discourse, in particular the way in which it renders pornography synonymous with ‘sex’ (Boyle 2014a, Tyler and Quek 2016).
