Abstract

The article questions the presence of a pornographic discourse in Spanish cinema, from the hardcore crossover trend (Linda Williams) existing in other cinematographies. To do so, it studies the representation of sexual relations in the Spanish cinema of the last ten years. In that decade we notice a confluence of crises ˗digital, financial˗ that decisively influence cultural industries, including pornography, as well as the way of experiencing and representing sex in mainstream cinema.
