Abstract

This article surveys the discourses produced by the emergence of pornographic programming on cable television during the 1980s, advancing an argument not only that pornography helped establish cable as a consumer medium, as existing analyses have asserted, but also that the cultural and regulatory responses to pornography on cable helped establish a new ontology for television as a sexual technology.
