Pornography is a complex system that meets specific production, distribution, and market logics. In order to analyze it from a systemic point of view we need to observe its multidimensionality and the various ecological functions that it can fulfil starting from the social to the individual level. In its homeostatic function it embodies the role of the designated patient that channels that tension between drives and repression, obsession and moralization of a cultural system incapable of bringing back sexuality into a fluid state which encompasses all areas of life and knowledge. At the same time, the designated patient of a family consumes pornogra phy to legitimize their social isolation and to remain eternally bound to the myth of inseparability.
