This book chapter is concerned with not-for-profit narrative written by audiences about characters in their favourite serial television and film productions, shared online (fan-fiction). Specifically, it is about fan-fiction of a sado-masochistic nature where a central and graphic part of the story invovles a body, or bodies, deliberately stressed in an erotic context. It argues such fictions are generally ethically framed within shared fan communities of predominantly female authorship and may constitute emergent post-phallocratic pornographic spaces.
