Deconstructing
Sexuality:
discipling
practices, power,
and Pornography

Janelle McLeod
University of Manitoba
Department of Sociology
The Confession
\ue000 modern compulsion to speak and confess incessantly about
sex (Foucault, 1977:69).
\ue000 we demand that sex tells us the truth and in turn tells us our
own truth
\ue000 free the body and soul of an enforced silence.

\u201cThe obligation to confess is now relayed through so many
different points, is so deeply ingrained in us, that we no
longer perceive it as the effects of a power that constrains
us; on the contrary, it seems to us
that truth, lodged in our most
secret nature, \u2018demands\u2019 only to
surface; that if it fails to do so, this
is because a constraint holds it in
place, the violence of a power
weighs it down, and it can finally
be articulated only at the price of a
kind of liberation\u201d (Foucault,
1978;60).
