Démocratie sexuelle, sexualité et rapports sociaux : les représentations de la sexualité dans la presse

Abstract : The analysis of the representations of sexuality in French printed press since 1968 shows they are an issue of social relations of sex, class, generation and race. They legitimize these categorizations or are on the contrary means of subversion. These discourses are products of social and historical specific contexts, they are charged with different issues according to the intended readership. These representations participate in a strategy of differentiated naturalization of categories. Printed press regularly talks about pornography. This media coverage serves different goals according to the readership. Academic and media handling of pornography exacerbates the discourses and sexual representation strategies. The hypothesis of a social relation of sexuality is questioned, establishing a hierarchy between “straights” and sexual pariahs. Representations of sexuality in printed press confirm the hypothesis of sexuality as a privileged sphere of classification and ranking. It is also an emancipation bearer.
