The patriarchal society is based on the belief that men must control resources and power, and that women are an inferior subset of society that must be kept apart from power and be limited to reproduction (maternity) and home activities. Patriarchal societies typically oppose nudity in art and media, condemn extramarital sex and birth control, and attack sex workers yet force some people (mainly women) to be sex workers when no other option is left to them.
This website presents information on censorship in a specific case in Latin America and will include studies on how female sexuality and eroticism are affected by the patriarchal view in the media within that regional context.
