The Erotics of Invisibility

The Erotics of Invisibility | Women: Relationships, alcohol, porn, lesbians, masturbation, swinging, fantasy, female sex predators and orgasm | Scoop.it

This is paper I wrote on lesbian visibility and eroticism for a class on Renaissance literature and history in 2011. It is very dense– but perhaps still enjoyable.

 

...What I argue is that this invisibility of female homosexuality is not merely a result of the historical distance from the period, but rather a consciously acknowledged component of the understanding of female same-sex erotic desire at the time. In “Sappho to Philaenis,” the secrecy and immaculateness of the title characters’ sexual activity operates as one of Donne’s central arguments for the superiority of a female-female sexual relationship.

A History of Homoerotica

A History of Homoerotica | Women: Relationships, alcohol, porn, lesbians, masturbation, swinging, fantasy, female sex predators and orgasm | Scoop.it

What sorts of things did gay men get up to in the past, and how much did these differ from what we get up to today? Does gay sex have a history, or do the forms of pleasure remain the same across centuries? Have some tastes declined, and new tastes arisen?

Erotic and Pornographic Art: Gay Male

Erotic and Pornographic Art: Gay Male | Women: Relationships, alcohol, porn, lesbians, masturbation, swinging, fantasy, female sex predators and orgasm | Scoop.it

Given the historic stigma around making, circulating, and possessing overtly homoerotic images, the visual arts have been especially important for providing a socially sanctioned arena for the depiction of the naked male body. They have even allowed the suggestion of homoerotic desire and physical affection within acceptable cultural and moral boundaries. Even so, much of the history of homoerotic image-making may be characterized by calculated ambiguity, coding, denial, and underground circulation.

A nicely-written article which made me think of the concept of equal rights in art.

Gender, Sex Work And Going Beyond Diversity: A Review of Storm Dogs #5 - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies an

Gender, Sex Work And Going Beyond Diversity: A Review of Storm Dogs #5 - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies an | Women: Relationships, alcohol, porn, lesbians, masturbation, swinging, fantasy, female sex predators and orgasm | Scoop.it

Doll is a “wire”, a futuristic sort of sex-worker in which an implant in her brain allows clients to, effectively, “be” her for a period of time (think Being John Malkovich). The service is explicitly described and treated as being sexual in nature, and the various “wires” have generally been modified in ways to make this experience more satisfying for the various kinks of differing clients (the reader is, for instance, also briefly introduced to a male wire named Cutter who has been augmented with technology to make him experience more pain, and heal faster, to appeal to masochists who wish to enjoy such activities without doing harm to their own bodies).

 

...I am completely on board with what Hine and Brathwaite are exploring here, and deeply appreciative to see someone going into some of the substance that lies beyond the threshold of the achievement of diversity. Diversity in comics is an incredibly important thing, and I wouldn’t for a moment belittle or dismiss it, nor would I downplay just how much hard work it takes to even achieve getting a minority presence into a medium or genre that’s historically been hostile to it. But once we break those barriers, once we get to the point of a certain kind of character being “allowed” in comics, we have to start looking at what more we can say about those things. There is, after all, a great deal more to being transgender than just… being transgender, and coming out or disclosing every now and then. It’s a whole world of complex human experiences, questions, identities, nuance and politics. And there’s much much more to sex work than simply being people who offer the service of sex in exchange for a predetermined sum of money. Again, that’s a whole type of human life.
