NETO, Alberto Ribeiro  and  CECCARELLI, Paulo Roberto. Internet and pornography: psychoanalytic notes about erotic daydreams on the digital data worldwide web. Reverso [online]. 2015, vol.37, n.70, pp. 15-22. ISSN 0102-7395.

The text focuses on the relation between pornography and the Internet. Taking into acount the landmarks of psychoanalytic theory, how can we place ourselves concerning the vast pornographic material currently available? In order to answer this question, the authors have investigated the cultural sexual morality and its requirements of a standardized sexuality, considering pornography as a possible response to such requirements and as form of discharge of the sexuality. We interrogate the influences of a worldwide net in which 35% of all downloads are pornographic, provided that cuostomers have private access to pornography. We claim that the net allows a kind of interactivity which allows new forms of creation, in such a way that each costumer becomes a potential pornographic producer. Such possibility enables the observation fantasies that compose the pornographic objects.
