Abstract: The present work explores the relationships between body, gender and sexuality and analyzes how the discourses on particular bodies are constructed in everyday life. We do so through the analysis of advertising images, of photographs from our own fieldwork, through the narratives evoked by them and also through data obtained during in-depth interviews. Through the analysis of the discursive codes and the conventions of masculinity, we examine the close association between body, gender and sexuality. The masculine body is constructed through marking elements of the sexual otherness and gender that are strongly linked to the body (like gender-crossing and hypergenderization) and that expose the limits of genders and bodies, showing how the latter are constructed and acquire meaning in particular contexts. These processes give rise to the formation of dominant models and counter-models with a strong gender component which maintain and/or resist the male model of beauty.
