PORNOGRAPHY
This work has drawn inspiration from two sources:
 
1.  A following quotation from A. Tereškinas’ ‘An Essay on Different Bodies’:
‘Masculinity is not necessarily associated with men as there appears no automatic relationship between masculinity and biological males. Just like male individuals can claim femininity, so masculinity can belong to women. Masculinity and femininity alike are defined through culturally recognizable actions that can be performed by individuals in defiance of their biological body. In separation from a biological body masculinity emerges as a social construct.’

2. Women’s magazines, a veritable cornucopia of advertising messages focused entirely on the external female image: physical beauty, sexual appeal, etc. Perceived as an exclusively outward and physical thing, such an ideal of beauty subjects women to immense social pressure urging to beautify their physical body and makes them feel not beautiful or insufficiently beautiful. In other words quoting A. Tereškinas again, ‘media makes us encounter pornography in everyday life’ – pornography that gratifies the male eye.
In this work I offer a woman’s perspective on the male body.
