Porn Rock. Le origini della sessualizzazione del rock: da Elvis Presley ai Beatles

Pornography promotes a constant sexualization of various aspects of contemporary culture. This sexualisation can take place through direct channels, such as explicit pornography, or through the mediation of other cultural forms, such as cinema, fashion and art. Rock music played a decisive role among these channels. This paper takes into consideration the contribution to sexualization brought by the first great exponents of rock, from Elvis Presley to the Beatles, examining the ways in which they sexualized their artistic expressions and the reasons that have favored their success among the public.
