This study of pornographic magazine photographs—softcore, hardcore, transsexual/transvestite—analyzes the visual code of these images. It engages questions about masculinity and masculine sexuality such as "Is there a necessary relation between difference and phallic desire?" "Can the masculine subject imagine otherness?" "Is there a will-to-asceticism in this (masculine) sexual surrender to indifferentiation?"
