Registration opens November 1.
November's presentation is Saturday, October 13, 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. PDT featuring Dr. Lynnette Coto: "An Explorative Study on Pegging through Qualitative Analysis"
Her talk will discuss her pegging study that consisted of semi-structured interviews with 22 individuals who regularly participate in pegging -- acts of anally penetrating heterosexual men, usually by a woman using dildos or various objects, for sexual pleasure. Symbolic interactionism, gender, and queer theories guided research questions focused on how pegging interests developed, how pegging is associated with gender identity and expression, and how participants experience and manage stigma. Findings suggest that gender norms are simultaneously destabilized and reinforced, traditional sexual behavior norms are disrupted, and participants face stigma similar to those who engage in other marginalized sexual practices.
Dr. Lynnette Coto is an Assistant Professor in the Department of History and Social Sciences at Louisiana State University Shreveport.
