Domestic Porn, the movie

[2009]
At first sight, pornography and domesticity belong to separate domains. While pornography is related to the frenzy of visibility, or more accurate, hyper-visibility, domesticity remains in the shadow. Domesticity seems to be maintained by a constant but silent battle against entropy, the tendency of things to go into disorder, and it is only visible when it fails. Sex, the main topic in pornography (or at least its star) is divorced from reproduction, but becomes a family issue into domestic space. However, these areas interact more than they would like to admit. Most of the time, pornography is consumed into domestic space; reversely, pornography is often about domesticity. A fictional one, or maybe an hyper-domesticity, but constantly alluded in settings and thematics. Pornography, then, comes in a way from domesticity and returns to it, as an asteroid. But what happens there? As Michel de Certeau asked about television: what do they make of what they “absorb,” receive, and pay for? What do they do with it?1This work tries to investigate that question by exploring the common area between pornography and domestic space. Domestic Porn is a real fiction and a performative research. It is an attempt to show the physical presence of pornography and its incorporation into domestic space.
