Macho versus Macho: an anthropological look at homoerotic practices among men in São Paulo

In this work, I intend to investigate homoerotic practices among men in São Paulo city in sites for casual, group or anonymous sex, involving sometimes fetishisms and/or sadomasochism. Preliminary field data, most of which collected in the Internet, shed light on the existence of discourses that grant great value to masculinity in some of these contexts. My hypothesis is that such valorization must be taken into account so as to fathom out the processes of body materialization and subjectivity construction in each of these men.
