Gay men who are marked as “sexual outlaws” have unique and tense relationships with social regulatory forces, and for the porn star, the tensions are exacerbated. Surveillance, attraction, seduction, repulsion, authority, and discipline mark the communicative dynamics between the bodies of subject/object, performer/spectator, image-maker/imagined. This essay, which is a follow-up to “Sextext,” is a fictional account of a porn star who navigates personal and social relationships in the context of a culture that averts overt discussions of carnal desire.
