McKittrick Essay in New Collection

Casey McKittrick’s essay, “Brothers’ Milk: The Erotic and the Lethal in Bareback Pornography,” appears as part of the thought-provoking and generally provocative new collection, Porn—Philosophy for Everyone: How to Think with Kink (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010), edited by Dave Monroe and with a foreword by Gram Ponante. The editor’s introduction singles out Casey’s piece for special consideration: in his words, “I am excited to include his essay, as precious little philosophical literature addresses male homosexual pornography.” The essay examines the subculture of “barebacking” and positions the relatively recent proliferation of filmic representations of its practice within a theoretical framework that attends to its broader cultural and political ramifications.
