Portuguese youngsters, new media and sexuality – information, activism and pleasure-seeking experiences

Gender in Focus Conference, 2014

This research, conducted in the context of a PhD thesis, tries to extend the notion of “sexualized usages of (new) media” beyond the tropes of pornography and sexting, by also taking in consideration the search for information on sexual and reproductive health, as well as online forms of activism and networking. Drawing from a snowball sample of about 180 Portuguese youngsters between the ages of 16 and 19 years old that responded to an online survey spread through Facebook and also through several NGOs, we analyze the similarities and differences between genders in how they interact with these technologies, as well as to how they view the importance of both sexuality and sexual usages of new media in their lives. Preliminary results of the quantitative part of this research point to how gender impacts youngsters’ lives by generating different modes of usage of new media, which means that similarities and differences coexist. Results regarding the usage of the internet and mobile phones to exchange sexual messages, and to access fora, sexual content and health/sexual information will be explored. These results will be presented alongside existing international research, and read in the context of Foucault’s work on the sexuality dispositif, and the current debate about sexualization (Smith & Attwood, 2011) and pornographication (Smith, 2010), arguing for a more nuanced view of the interactions between media and its users (McKee, 2005; 2007; 2009; 2010; 2012) and against simplistic models of media effects (McKee, 2009). These results hope to point out the need for a more integrated approach to what sexualized means, beyond the articulation of media panics over sexuality and youngsters.


The voyeuristic fascination of sexual alterity: BDSM and kink representations in Portuguese journalism

Gender in Focus Conference 2014

The past few years have given way to greater visibility of BDSM as a theme in popular culture, and press coverage of BDSM/kink in Portugal has been sporadic but consistent in the past decade. Following Margot Weiss’ analysis of the American coverage of the same topic, we analyze the journalistic methods by which BDSM/kink is represented in a convenience sample gathered in mainstream newsmagazines and newspapers. By constantly interviewing members of the Portuguese BDSM community, these articles give voice to a closeted sexual minority, but by framing their discourse as Other, it manages to uphold the borders between normative and non-normative sexualities, while providing the readers with voyeuristic pleasure. Academic (psychological) discourse is also a constant, with the double role of serving as assurance of non-pathology and yet reinforcing the privileged role of the psy sciences in making sexuality ‘speak’.

O Núcleo LGBT da Amnistia Internacional convida-te a participares na discussão em torno destas temáticas. Os homossexuais são mais promíscuos que os heterossexuais? Fazem mais sexo? São menos atreitos a relações estáveis? Estão mais disponíveis para relações abertas ou poliamorosas? E, afinal, o que é isso do Poliamor? É uma orientação sexual? Todos os poliamorosos são homossexuais? Poliamor significa o
mesmo que poligamia? Estas e outras questões igualmente interessantes serão abordadas neste encontro, no qual contaremos com a presença de um elemento do colectivo Poly Portugal, que nos irá, certamente, esclarecer todas as dúvidas que tenhamos sobre esta forma de encarar as relações sentimentais.
