[ecrea] cfp: Forum on Porn Tourism for Porn Studies journal

Tue Oct 30 07:59:48 GMT 2018

This forum seeks to create scholarly momentum around the concept of “porn tourism.” Expanding and building on established analyses of sex tourism, “porn tourism” provides unique opportunities to study intersections of pornography and relaxation, enjoyment, fandom, and escapism, beyond viewing adult material. Widening sex tourism research topics to include other forms of sexually spurred tourism, in addition to turning analysis toward domestic intra-country travel and touristic experiences, can provide novel and useful insights into the racial, gender, class, and sexual dynamics that tourism engenders.

Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  * Workers’ experiences in porn tourism industries; demands for
    intimate access to porn performers IRL or via social media
  * Rhetoricof danger and violence around porn, as it intersects with
    tourism and touristic consumption
  * Analyses of growth and/or content of “porn tourism” videos
  * Situating live sex stage performances (“live porn”) in a specific
    city’s or country’s tourism economy
  * Raced, classed, and gendered dynamics of porn tourism;
    heteronormativity or homonormativity of porn tourism
  * The socio-techno-politics of porn tourism
  * Empirically based critiques of the concept “porn tourism”

Porn fandom, such as:

  * Travelling/attending a porn expo or porn film festival
  * Visiting strip clubs when a porn performer headlines,or arranging
    dates with a porn performer
  * touring Nevada’s legal brothels
