‘Embodied Online to Offline Interactions: New Media and Body Practices in Urban Space’

Sexuality was traditionally connected with the private, an element questioned outside the heteronormative boundaries, with groups being excluded both from public and private spaces. Men seeking sex with men practices historically blurred this binary distinction. Once the digital media of communication offered new means of communication, and people took advantage of them changing the perception of geographical space. The paper presents a series of observations about the interrelation of public and private based Grinder users’ profiles and geographical distribution within the city of Portsmouth – looking on how those avatars are embodied somewhere in the city and its interconnection of digital grids and city maps
