Abstract: Theorizing the relationship between pornography and heterosexual men's investment in and enactment of hegemonic masculine practice—particularly overt sexism, the objectification of women, and violence against women—is longstanding and fraught territory in feminist research and activism. Drawing on interactional and post-structural theories of gender, I attempt to move beyond binary debates about whether or not pornography impacts heterosexual men's gender ideology or sexual practice to argue that pornography has a much more complex relationship to individual men's accomplishment of gender. Drawing on 15 in-depth life history interviews asking subjects to narrate their experiences of sexual learning, this article attempts to link debates about pornography to theories of gender, particularly theories of multiple masculinities. I argue not that pornography use has a direct causal relationship to gender outcomes, but that pornography use can become implicated in gender outcomes where pornography use and preferences are believed by individual men to signify inadequate or failed masculinity. I argue that where subjects did not feel their pornography use had any bearing on adequate or inadequate gender accomplishment, they experienced a greater security in departing from normative masculine forms over the life course, resulting in more egalitarian and pro-feminist gender ideology and sex practice. Where pornography use contributed to anxieties about inadequate or failed masculinity, subjects became more invested in the performance of normative masculinity and exhibited greater reluctance to depart from normative masculine forms over the life course. Implications for the maintenance of unequal gender relations are discussed.

Abstract: With a nine month ethnographic study as its basis, this paper is looking at the role transnational media flows play in the formation of local, class-specific cosmopolitan identities amongst the lower middle class youth of Cairo. By suggesting that cosmopolitanism should be understood as a form of internal heterogeneity; where through personal strategies and performance the global is made a part of our own local repertoires, this paper is arguing that it is lower middle class Egyptian youth who are more deserving of the cosmopolitan label. Through an intricate integration of Islamic discourse and Islamic media into their daily social practices, members of the lower middle class are engaged in the production of more dynamic cosmopolitanisms based on a happy negotiation between both local and global repertoires. Such unpredictable forms of cosmopolitanism are created through exclusion and belonging within different spaces of the city and media practice.

Abstract: This performative autoethnography explores the intersection of gender, sexuality, and class as socially situated constructs that vary from community to community. Performers of roles contrary to the dominant culture find themselves labeled, defined, and sanctioned in different ways within different groups even though their performance of self remains the same. This narrative asks us to consider how someone’s self-image might fluctuate as a result of performative expectations in a culture of intense identity fluidity.
