This research aims to analyze, through the comparative method, the process of insertion of Brazilian transvestites and transsexuals into audiovisual pornographic production. It was decided to work with two distinct moments: the beginning of this type of production in Brazil during the 1980s in the context of the explicit cinematographic production of boca do lixo paulistana, and in its more contemporary phase guided by a context of production, distribution and consumption mediated by digital technologies. So, in the second moment, we chose to work with some specific sites: I) the websites that make up pornographic distribution conglomerate Pornhub Network (specifically, the most accessed platforms such as pornhub.com and redtube.com) and II) the site specialized in pornography with transsexuals Shemale Tube (ashemaletube.com). All of these platforms have as characteristics the distribution of their contents for free, which favors the increase in their access and search flows. Based on a bibliographical and documentary research on aspects of pornographic production in modernity, we intend to investigate how the body of Brazilian transvestites and transsexuals appears within the audiovisual pornographic tradition.
