E Pornô, tem pornô? represents a panorama of the Brazilian porn industry as well as of the burgeoning field of Brazilian porn studies. The anthology covers the historical developments of Brazilian pornography, from the early pornochanchada productions – softcore films that mirrored the highly sexualized Brazilian culture of the 1960s and 1970s with comic and sometimes sarcastic overtones – to the latest strands of contemporary netporn, with a specific focus on women in explicit media. The articles included in this book also represent an overview of a specific area of research that has been growing in Brazilian academia in the last decade and of its theoretical and political implications.

Mariana Baltar is Professor of Film and TV at Universidade Federal Fluminense (Rio de Janeiro) where she also did her PhD on the dialogue between documentary and melodrama in Brazilian contemporary documentaries. She directs the research group NEX – Studies in Excess at Audiovisual Narratives and, under a fellowship of CNPQ (Pq-2), she has developed a line of research on the role of excess in the contemporary culture, focalizing specifically on body genres and their politics. She is also member of the Editorial Board of the journal Porn Studies (Routledge) and the author of a chapter in Latin American Melodrama. Passion, Pathos, and Entertainment (2009).
