Part 2 of chapter 4 contributes to the dialogue of part 1 by combining an industry-based textual analysis with the findings of the authors’ social audience study of Blue Is the Warmest Colour. This part puts into interdisciplinary dialogue the mutually constructed meanings of “risk,” “desire,” and “intimacy” presented by this real sex film, as read by the macro discourses of film reviewing, risk sociology, and feminist-psychoanalytical film studies outlined in the first three chapters. In doing this it also introduces analytical themes that are explored extensively in later chapters of the book: real sex versus simulated sex, multiple and performed authorship, and the pleasures of the gazes of scopophilia and ego-identity in one disciplinary paradigm, and of voluntary risk-taking and addiction in another.

Keywords:   textual analysis, Blue Is the Warmest Colour, risk, desire, intimacy, addiction, the gaze, authorship, real sex, simulated sex
