An Index of atypical sexual attractions and their representation in cinema.
This index contains information about known Paraphilias through the use of dictionary definitions. The textual and visual images taken from motion pictures are used as a study case for the presence of Paraphilias in popular culture. Referring to images from popular cinema is the antithesis of porn where one often encounters a different type of sexuality and with the help of cinematic parallelism, this lexicon strives to simplify and make it accessible.
Dealing with the issue of kinkiness goes beyond the question of sexual behavior.
It reflects on issues of identity, exclusion and normality in a large society
and it’s flouid codes.
