Erotic literature comprises fictional and factual stories and accounts of human sexual relationships which have the power to or are intended to arouse the reader sexually. A common feature of the genre is sexual fantasies on such themes as prostitutionorgieshomosexualitysadomasochismand many other taboo subjects and fetisheswhich may or may not be expressed in explicit language. Despite cultural taboos on such material, circulation of erotic literature was not seen as a major problem before the invention of printing, as the costs of producing individual manuscripts limited distribution to a very small group of readers.
These cross-border accounts refused to see globalization as a new formation, but rather argued that it continued and exacerbated colonial inequalities, offering new and recycled vistas for understanding sexuality, love and intimacy. The nation-state, however, has not waned, but merely shifted its role to support capital restructuring and profit motives across borders, while monitoring more severely how bodies move across borders.

Man, always satisfying his external passions, has no compassion regarding the sovereignty of our land, devastating, polluting, annihilating. His only urge is to satisfy the emptiness of his soul, feeding it with all sorts of possessions and pleasures, little by little forgetting the search in his spirit for answers. The fauna and flora die at his feet, dedicating their horns, nails, and bones to unending sexual gluttony.
Given Christianity's valuation of celibacy and its persistent association of sexuality with the Fall and of women with sin, Western medieval attitudes toward the erotic could not help but be vexed. In contrast, eroticism is explicitly celebrated in a large number of theological, scientific, and literary texts of the medieval Arab Islamicate tradition, where sexuality was positioned at the very heart of religious piety. In Crossing BordersSahar Amer turns to the rich body of Arabic sexological writings to focus, in particular, on their open attitude toward erotic love between women.

April Sexuality and Borders: Beyond Innocence This presentation consists of a chapter in my upcoming manuscript The Geopolitics of Race and Sexuality: Euro-Atlantic Integration and the Post-Socialist Politics of Whiteness in the Balkans which explores the ways in which racialized and sexualized subjects are produced as objects of threat to the geopolitics of whiteness particularly at its borderlands where the making of white post-socialist secular hetero and homonormative Europeans has relied on the disarticulation of migrant, Roma, Muslim and queer Others. Focusing on Bulgaria specifically, I examine the ways in which border securitization and demographic debates that have targeted Roma Muslim men as sexually deviant, repressed and susceptible to radicalism have come to coincide with new methods of racialization and repressions that mirror the production of Muslim populations in Bulgaria as co-conspirators with Middle Eastern migrants in Arabizing Bulgaria in the face of refugee arrivals and an ostensible demographic crisis.
