Abstract

本文試圖重新思考過去色情研究中的性慾與性行為之間的關係。在坊間、媒體,甚至學術界的論述中,色情品之使用不但直接歸因到性慾上,而色情品之使用更能誘發潛藏於物質人類軀殼內的原始慾望,例如對女性的物化或暴力相向。在這一建構下,性慾與性行為之間即存在著一對一的相應關係;這一慾望一旦被啟動,相應的行為便會自然產生,也因此,色情品被視為社會性態度愈見開放和各種性罪行的「罪魁禍首」。本文打破這種思考邏輯,指出台灣人使用A片很多時侯可以因為「非性」的需要。通過一個詳細的民族誌分析,可以得知,台灣A片使用者往往因為個人獨有的家庭背景和遭遇,因而對日本A片產生「非性」的需要。本文旨在揭示,台灣A片使用者跟日本A片之間的關係之所以能夠是「非性」,是因為這些關係是台灣社會結構與個人成長、背景、遭遇相互作用、「調停」下之結果。因此,色情品之使用並不單純地因為性慾而起,而是個體在台灣普同的文化背景下活出自我獨特性的結果。

This paper rethinks some issues between sexual desire and sexual behaviour in past work on pornography studies. Pornography use is often thought to be linked with, or more precisely, solely motivated by sexual desire, and prolonged pornography use can in turn activate our primitive desires, such as aggression toward women. Inherent in this is that there is a one-to-one correspondence between innate sexual desire and sexual behaviour, since once such a desire is stimulated, corresponding behaviour will follow. For that reason, pornography is blamed as the arch-criminal for most sex crimes in society. This article breaks with this logic in that it shows how the use of Japanese AVs by Taiwanese people can have more to do with nonsexual needs. By examining an ethnographic case, it shows how Taiwanese men might develop nonsexual interests in Japanese AVs in a particular way, pertaining to their own biographical experiences, including their family background and personal encounters. I argue that the reason their specific relations with Japanese AVs can be "nonsexual" is that these relations are the mediated results between Taiwanese social structures and their biographical experiences. In other words, pornography use is not just about sexual desire but also about how individuals live the Taiwanese culture as particular.
