Abstract

What has come to be world-wide known as feminist porn puts forward a visual body politics that turns down both traditional body representations (always veiling masculine and feminine genitalia in order to be considered proper) and sexist pornographic images (with its gynecological approach to the body). The aesthetics involved in the post-porn films by Barcelona resident director Erika Lust are not interested in hiding the body under a thick layer of moral taboos nor in the violence of its maximum exhibition (and objectification) under the traditional porno paradigm.
