    Benefits of the in-between: Swedish men’s magazines and sex films 1965–19752014In: Sexuality & Culture, ISSN 1095-5143, E-ISSN 1936-4822, Vol. 18, no 2, p. 310-330Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes a content-based market position that developed during the mid-1960s, situated in-between the pornographic and the accepted. By studying Swedish men’s magazines and sex films from the time period, the argument is made that these media products profited from both the advantages of pornography, i.e., more or less sexual explicit images, and the advantages of the accepted, i.e., common distribution channels, the possibility of having regular advertising and placards and being sold in ordinary kiosks (for magazines) and shown at ordinary cinemas (for films). For some years, this balancing act between the accepted and the pornographic was maintained, and the genre became enormously popular. From the mid-1970s onward, however, the division between pornography and accepted media became more clear-cut. The critique against pornography and the in-between media products intensified, and the uncertainty about pornography’s future role after the legalization in 1971 was followed by new ways of separating the pornographic from the accepted. While there were some differences between the two media formats, such as their degree of internationalization and the importance of advertising, they shared much in terms of content formulas and used the same female actors and models. It is argued that both formal regulations and the informal norms of gender and sexuality at the time and their change throughout the 1970s are key for understanding the development and the disappearance of the in-between genre.

    Sexual violence, good taste and the education of the cinema audience: Gender and censorship in 1920s Sweden2018In: Journal of Scandinavian Cinema, ISSN 2042-7891, E-ISSN 2042-7905, Vol. 8, no 3, p. 215-232Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article makes use of records in the archive of Sweden’s National Board of Film Censorship for a discussion of the censorship of visual representations of sex and violence in films by women directors during the 1920s. From the perspective that Swedish film censorship was utilized to educate and control Swedish cinema audiences, not least concerning taste, the question is posed: how did gender and nationality play a role in the assessment of taste? Focusing on three case studies, namely Karin Swanström’s Kalle Utter (1925), Dorothy Arzner’s Manhattan Cocktail (1928) and Olga Preobrazhenskaya’s The Women of Ryazan (1927) and comparing censorship records with reviews in the daily press, the article demonstrates how nation played a role in the assessment of taste and the decisions to cut these films. The analyses also reveal that the censoring of sexual violence had a tendency to diminish acts such as rape and forced kissing in a narrative as well as on a moral level.

    Abstract [en]

    Six essays + an editorial about the phenomenon of sex in the cinema, television and on the internet since the historical breakthrough of sex research by Alfred C. Kinsey in the late 1940s. The essays span a wide array of topics including, to name a few, the developments within obscenity law in the US, sex in the work of European art cinema auteurs such as Ingmar Bergman and Michelangelo Antonioni, the reception of an actress making the crossover move from porn to 'regular' film. The issue also includes a standard section of book, festival and DVD reviews not connected to the main theme of the issue.

    Ingmar Bergman, Swedish sexploitation and early Swedish porn2015In: Journal of Scandinavian Cinema, ISSN 2042-7891, E-ISSN 2042-7905, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 49-61Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses intertextual relations between Ingmar Bergman films and four films from the Swedish history of late 1960s and 1970s sexploitation and pornography. Although Bergman played a significant role in the liberalization of film censorship in Sweden in the 1960s and was known for the beautiful actresses of his films, that he demonstrably inspired film-makers operating in what is usually regarded as the complete opposite of art cinema is not so widely known. In the films Jag – en oskuld/Inga (1968), Thriller – en grym film/Thriller – A Cruel Picture (1974), Justine och Juliette/Justine and Juliette (1975) and Fäbodjäntan/Come Blow the Horn (1978) there are several intertextual relations, both deliberate allusions and more implicit and unintended connections. These relations may have an impact on how we regard both the role of Bergman and the directors of sexually explicit films in the particular context of Sweden in the 1960s and 1970s

    Lasse Braun, rape scenarios, and Swedish censorship: a case study of two 8-mm porn films featuring rape2017In: Porn Studies, ISSN 2326-8751, E-ISSN 2326-8743, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 23-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines rape scenarios in two pornographic 8-mm films by Lasse Braun: White Fantasies/Black Power (1969) and Cerimony (1971). Furthermore, it begins an exploration of Lasse Braun, an important figure in late-1960s and early-1970s pornography. Finally, because both films were censored by the Swedish National Board of Film Censors, the article considers their specific national-historical contexts including the legal situation for pornography in Sweden and the shifting discourses on rape in the 1970s, to open up a discussion of whether the elimination of violence in pornographic representations actually makes them less misogynist. The censorship decisions clearly echoed anxieties about race and gender provoked by these two films. A closer look at the films reveals a knowing approach, not only to sexual fantasies, but also to contemporary political and aesthetic movements.

    Abstract [en]

    Although body language in the moving image may to a large extent be transparent, some aspects of body language are regulated by generic conventions, rating systems, and, historically, by the law. This article discusses the limitations and possibilities of the body language of the penis, using examples from both non-pornographic films and pornographic films.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter discusses current changes in how pornography is perceived, consumed, and produced in Scandinavia, with a particular focus on Sweden. Brian McNair argues that the development in liberal democracies that has legalized and facilitated pornography in the past four decades has also enabled various sorts of progress that have been made in the areas of women's and gays' rights as well as the rights to sexual citizenship. The chapter focuses on the producers' perspective, the consumption angle and the changing context for consumption of pornographic images are also taken into account. Two producers of different pornographies are juxtaposed and compared: Mia Engberg, who produced Dirty Diaries; and Mike Beck, who has been producing mainstream porn films. The chapter is partly based on earlier research into the pornographic film in Sweden in the 1970s, but although the chapter provides historical background, the main emphasis is on the contemporary scene.

    Abstract [en]

    The Face of AIDS Film Archive consists of documentation of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, shot all over the world beginning in 1988 by Swedish filmmaker and journalist Staffan Hildebrand. In this article, the archive’s particular characteristic of process is discussed and examined through four different perspectives: first, as an ongoing documentation of HIV/AIDS in the contemporaneous moments when it was filmed; second, as a commission of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm; third, as the product of a director with a strong personal vision and authorial presence; and finally, as an expression of Hildebrand’s self-defined AIDS activism.

    Documentary filmmaking as colonialist propaganda and cinefeminist intervention: Mai Zetterling's Of Seals and Men (1979)2015In: Film History. An International Journal, ISSN 0892-2160, E-ISSN 1553-3905, Vol. 27, no 4, p. 106-129Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay focuses on UK-based Swedish filmmaker Mai Zetterling’s made-for-television documentary Of Seals and Men (1979). Zetterling is known internationally as an art film auteur, and this examination seeks to broaden her stature in the context of UK and Europe-based cinefeminsim movements of the 1970s. The authors argue that Of Seals and Men constitutes a significant and overlooked artefact also in the history of colonial Greenlandic-Danish relations, as it focuses on the controversy of the Greenlandic seal hunt, and was financed as a propaganda vehicle by the Danish government and the Greenland Trade Department. The article draws on extensive archival research and references Zetterling’s production notebooks and correspondence, as well as official communication by the Royal Greenland Trade Department.
