Still 'Fashionably Laid'? Costume and Contemporary Pornography

Kirkham, Neil and Dirix, Emmanuelle (2017) Still 'Fashionably Laid'? Costume and Contemporary Pornography. Film, Fashion and Consumption. ISSN 20442823

Type of Research: Article
Creators: Kirkham, Neil and Dirix, Emmanuelle

This article analyses the role of costume in contemporary heterosexual hard-core moving-image pornography. Building upon a previous study (Church Gibson and Kirkham 2012), it focuses on the representation of youth in a sub-site of the American website Reality Kings (2000–present). By drawing on an emergent yet fragmented body of work in this field, it situates the importance of costume and dress in communicating aspects of gendered identity and debates pornography’s use of ‘authentic’ visual strategies. In addition, it problematizes the much-discussed concept of ‘pornification’, arguing for the recognition of an inverse effect in pornographic texts.
