ABSTRACT
In the early 1970s, three films establish a way for determining therepresentation of sex in movie screens: Deep Throat (1972), The Devil in Miss Jones (1973), and Behind the Green Door (1972). In these films, dissatisfaction, innocence, curiosity, and incompleteness, understood as abstract thematic routes, gain concreteness by the procedure of female bodies figurativization installed on filmic enunciate, immersed in a search, voluntary or otherwise, completeness carnal. For the French Semiotics, the figurativization is an important process in the grounds of a discourse whatsoever: it is a procedure in which semantic content perceived as more “concrete” overlying theme paths more “abstract”. Our purpose is to verify, by means of semioticdiscoursive, such as abstract thematic routes are materialized, that receiving one figurative coating to convey a sense of purpose intended by the enunciator, and to investigate the representation of the body projected onto the film text. From these three films of eroticism in excess, hardcore erotic cinema, we intend to lay the groundwork for the foundation of a semiotics of sexual representation on film porn, whose figurativization body in ecstasy, in the utterance, it becomes crucial for the establishment this genre of film.
