LEITE JR, Jorge. Scientific categories, native conceptions and marketable classifications: pornography and conceptual labyrinths. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2012, n.38, pp.99-128. ISSN 1809-4449.

This paper aims to discuss how pornography, especially that which involves people who move between sexes/ genders, deal with one of the most characteristic issues of social science: the tension among scientific categories, native conceptions and marketable classifications. In the (even more) saturated and competitive worldwide pornography market, these diffuse boundaries are presented as a vast territory to be colonized by the porn industry logic.

Keywords : Pornography; Travesties; Transsexuals; Exoticism; Categories.
