The major purpose of this research is to document, through content analysis, the nature of pornographic themes found in a collection of pornographic comics usually called »eight-pagers«. Pornographic categories developed by Kronhausen and Kronhausen (1961) were used in the analysis. Females are depicted as similar to males in carnal appetite and sexual aggression. Male chauvinism is apparent in many of the comics, and male fantasies are equally displayed and fulfilled. The comics visually portray numerous behaviors considered legally or morally deviant, but project “normative” sexuality by concentrating upon adult monogamous heterosexual behavior. Finally, a discussion of taxonomical, linguistic, and methodological problems in studying pornographic comics is offered.
