Porn for Pussies: Representations of Queer Female Sexuality in Shine Louise Houston’s Pornography

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Shine Louise Houston’s pornography exemplifies the new genre of “woman-made, dyke-made” pornography. Her work provides queer female-bodied individuals with visual images of “lesbian” sexual practices for much-needed practical, social, and erotic purposes. Examining Houston’s films and their accompanying materials, I find that Houston simultaneously produces images of lesbian desire and then explodes the very meaning of lesbian almost to the point of incoherency, as queer theorists such as Butler demand. Houston’s pornography does more than simply fill a gap; her work uses both feminist and queer theories to transform – or “queer” – the pornographic genre, lesbian identity, and representational politics.
