Abstract

The objective of this study is to address the status of the issue regarding treatment given to a topic such as pornography in contemporary Spanish essays, taking into account that this is about a type of speech which has more often to do with the relationship of power than with sex (Braidotti). The gradual and increasing pornification of the society, the new formats and voices (in particular, the feminine ones) which have been influencing the configuration of a different vision, normalized and more complex about pornography, are included here as elements of an interesting debate about the relationship between pornography, sexuality, identity, gender and power.
