In the present, pornography is pedagogical and produces the sexuality it represents. Patriarchal and binary biological and neurological narratives of dominant/active males, coy/passive females, and pathologized queer behaviour greet us on the home pages of popular porn websites, together with colonial narratives of the exoticised and fetishised other.
In the future, sexual experience is downloadable, hackable, and uploaded via neurological implants that stimulate your sensory nerves and pleasure centres directly. ‘Speculative Sex’ presents work by Shu Lea Cheang and Eric Pussyboy using science fiction narratives as a medium to re-present bodies and sex.
