Project Description

At present there appears that there is an increasing saturation of the sexual within everyday culture. At the same time, access to such sexualization appears to be widening with a range of social groups now able to access diverse sexual and erotic forms. Although there appears to be some agreement that the sexualisation of culture is taking place, there is much debate about whether this involves the development of new genders and sexual forms, or whether it is a re-inscription of existing structures of sexual and gender inequality. We are looking for students who are interested in exploring how sexual cultures interplay with masculinities.

More specifically, is the emergence of new ways of being sexual having an impact on how men are making themselves. Areas such as BDSM, pornography, hooking-up, mobile dating, sex addiction, dogging, online sex seeking, sexual risk taking, will be considered. However, if there is an area that is not covered, please get in contact to discuss it. All methodological approaches will be considered although priority will be given to those undertaking wishing to undertake qualitative research.

This self-funded PhD is designed for students to propose an area of study that connects with these issues. It is not prescriptive, rather the emphasis is on students identifying what interests them most. A supervisory team will be then assembled to support the student throughout the duration of the PhD
