Having just read The History of Sexuality: Volume 1 I was struck by the way in which Foucault talks about the way that people in the nineteenth century were compelled to talk about sexuality as a way to contribute to discourse on the body. It’s interesting that, it seems to me, with social media there is no longer a need to compel people to talk, they seem desperate to contribute and define themselves through their discourse.
