Sexual subjectification and Bitchy Jones's Diary

Barker, Meg and Gill, Rosalind (2012). Sexual subjectification and Bitchy Jones's Diary. Psychology and Sexuality, 3(1) pp. 26–40.




This paper presents the reflections of two academics on the blog Bitchy Jones's Diary (2006-2010), particularly its considerations of dominant femininity within the UK kink communities. Weaving together excerpts from the blog with our own dialogues, we consider the potentials of such a voice from within the communities in relation to more academic explorations. Specifically we focus on the relationship between Bitchy Jones's arguments and our own understandings of limited sexualised femininities available within wider culture, the place of agency within these, and the potentials for mutual recognition within both kinky, and non-kinky, relationships.
