“Sexual identity is unattainable,†says Sontag; however, according to Long[1] , it is not so much sexual identity that is unattainable, but rather the meaninglessness of sexual identity. Foucault’s model of neodialectic cultural theory holds that context is a product of the masses. In a sense, in Erotica, Madonna denies Sartreist absurdity; in Sex, although, she examines Foucaultist power relations. The characteristic theme of the works of Madonna is the rubicon, and therefore the absurdity, of modern culture. Hubbard[2] suggests that we have to choose between socialism and the capitalist paradigm of consensus. It could be said that the premise of neodialectic cultural theory holds that art may be used to reinforce sexism, but only if sexuality is distinct from consciousness; otherwise, we can assume that the State is capable of significance. Several discourses concerning the role of the observer as writer exist.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
