The aim of the proposed project is to critically analyze from a sociological perspective European and American feminist texts on pornography as representations of sexuality. The proposed research will include secondary analysis of the
empirical sociological research of pornography´s impact on consumers, and a content analysis of a representative sample of porn video materials available in the Czech Republic. The project deals with possible linkages connecting porn and violence against women, reproduction of gender inequalities, and the contingent character of gender, sex, sexuality, and representations of sexuality.
