Bjorn Floréal & Laurens Aneca

Porn is not just porn. It produces our desires. It controls the sexual reactions of
viewers. Bjorn Floréal and Laurens Aneca look into the popular teen or twink porn
that exists within digital spaces: a genre in which (adult) porn stars do their utmost to sell their viewers an underage experience. To what extent is a youthful body orgasmic capital?

In their search for points of reference, they came across Voltaire's Candide: a
satirical adventure novel in which the young Candide goes on a quest in the world and is subjected to horrific deeds at lightning speed. Importantly, Candide embodies total innocence and faces the world with an endearingly naive optimism. 'For we do live in the best possible of all worlds.'
