This project is about theorizing black queer women’s sexualities and experiences with sexual pleasure outside the lens of traditional identitarian frameworks. Drawing on queer pornography and pleasure-based sex education, I analyze how these various forms of sex education conceptualize and deploy sexual pedagogy. Further, my project maps the ways in which black queer women’s sexual pleasure can be read through the lens of sensational affinity, which can serve as a form of queer world making.
