About this book

This book investigates what women enjoy about consuming, and in some cases producing, gay male erotic media–from slashfic, to pornographic texts, to visual pornography–and how this sits within their consumption of erotica and pornography more generally. In addition, it will examine how women’s use of gay male erotic media fits in with their perceptions of gender and sexuality. By drawing on a piece of wide-scale mixed methods research that examines these motivations, an original and important volume is presented that serves to explore and contribute to this under-researched area.

Reviews

“Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys … is a sort of 50 shades of gay for the modern woman.” (The Sunday Times Style magazine, January 20, 2019)
“This exploration of women’s interests in sexual representations of men takes aim at a number of sacred theoretical frameworks while its fascinating empirical detail allows women's voices the space they need to articulate the richness and variety of their pleasures and their politics. Lucy Neville has written a very engaging and readable analysis of women’s practices as viewers, readers, writers and makers.” (Clarissa Smith, University of Sunderland, UK)

“Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys is essential reading for anyone interested in the on-going debates around porn reception, not least because it shatters a set of preconceptions about who the audience is, and what the pleasures are to be gained …  Neville’s particular strength (and the reason that she is surely already emerging as an important figure in the field) is that her concrete and lucid research aims are realized with the deftest of touches and good humour. This book crackles with wit and insight and is beautifully written in an engaging and accessible manner that it will be of equal interest to scholars of gender and sexuality as it will be to a non-specialist readership ...  [Neville shows a] commitment to the production of feminist research that genuinely aspires to speak to a constituency above and beyond the narrow confines of field specialisms.” (John Mercer, Birmingham City University, UK)

“This is a beautiful book. Lucy Neville draws together porn studies, academic work on representations of romance and sex, fan and slash scholarship, in a groundbreaking and engaging study of women who watch m/m pornography.” (Feona Attwood, Middlesex University, UK)
