Abstract [en]

The aim of the study has been to examine women's participation in the reproduction of the system of heteronormative expectations of femininity and masculinity through narrative method, analyze books within the erotic women’s literature, as well as interviews with females. The study's focus was on the presentation and representations of the femininity(s) and masculinity(s). Through the questions

, How represents heteronormative femininity(s) and masculinity(s) in the erotic women´s litterateur? How portray women, their views on femininity(s) and masculinity(s)? The study were linked with the radical feminist theory regarding the male patriarchate's role as a hegemony in society, as well as one of queer theory's definitions of the gender and heteronormativity. The study also included elements of feminist research on popular culture. On the basis of my purpose and the research question I have come to the conclusion that women are involved in the reproduction of the system of heteronormative expectations of femininity and masculinity. But the study also shows a shifting duality of " ideal woman" and "ideal man".

Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte har varit att undersöka kvinnors delaktighet i reproduktion av heteronormativa förväntningar på kvinnlighet och manlighet genom narrativmetod, analysera böcker inom erotisk kvinnolitteratur samt intervjuer med kvinnor. Studiens fokus handlade om samtidens framställande samt representationer av femininitet(er) och maskulinitet(er). Genom frågeställningarna,

Hur framställs heteronormativ femininitet(er) och maskulinitet(er) i erotisk kvinnolitteratur? Hur framställer kvinnor sin syn på femininitet(er) och maskulinitet(er)? Studien kopplades samman med radikal feministisk teori rörande det manliga patriarkatets roll som hegemoni i samhället samt queerteorins definitioner av genus och heteronormativitet. Studien innefattade också inslag av feministisk forskning rörande populärkulturen. Utifrån mitt syfte samt frågeställning har jag kommit fram till att kvinnor är delaktiga i reproduktionen av heteronormativa förväntningar på kvinnlighet och manlighet. Men studien visar också på en skiftande dubbelhet rörande "idealkvinnan" och "idealmannen".
