Televisual practice and its economic determination. Nineteenth century bourgeois theatrical conventions and their effects. Sexuality and the limits of televisual representation. So what do we talk about? Just a few topics are available and you know them as well as I do. Theres sex of course, always theres sex. We imagine, falsely, that we talk about it in hushed voiced, confessing our sexuality. In fact, weve been on about it for centuries, shouting it from the rooftops, screaming ourselves hoarse.
