BARRETO, Victor Hugo de Souza. Limits, fissures, pleasure and risk at orgy parties for men. Mana [online]. 2019, vol.25, n.1, pp.9-37.  Epub 30-Maio-2019. ISSN 0104-9313.

This article results from ethnographic research on collective sexual practices among men, organized in commercial spaces in the city of Rio de Janeiro. It analyzes the desire involved in the search for practices in which intensity is a prominent element. Such practices, where boundary management, self-control and immersion in ecstasies emerge as "libidinal tensors" (Perlongher, 1987) and ways of thinking the so-called "limits of sexuality" (Gregori, 2010). I discuss how these practices are permeated by issues such as violence, consent, so-called social markers of difference, attention to disease and the risks inherent to these events, with, in these contexts, can be eroticized.

Palavras-chave : Pleasure; Risk; Fissures; Consent; Sexuality; Intensity.
