Abstract [en]

Previous research shows that sexual violence is a central part when the study focus on pornography. The purpose of this study is to gain knowledge of how sexual violence that pornography mediates affect women in general. What consequences the pornography has for women's sexuality and the extent to which women feel objectified in today's society. The study also aims to investigate whether pornography has consequences or limited the woman's sexual relations and experiences and whether there is an experience of being exposed to sexualized violence or whether it’s considered normalized acts. To gain this knowledge we conducted a qualitative study which included interviews with eight women. The central theoretical points are de los Reyes & Mulinari's theory about intersectionality, Simone de Beauvoir's theory about women as the “Other” and Thomas J. Scheff's theory about social bonds and shame. The main result that emerged is that pornography contributes to an invisible power that works throughout society. It mediates sexualised violence that restricts the woman in choices over her own sexuality, since sexualized violence is what women “should” enjoy. It is norms of aggressiveness and sexualized violence that have become normalized to relate to, the woman's sexuality is limited to humiliation and abuse.
