Eroticism is the subjective, indirect and mediate evocation of sexual pleasure and love in all its manifestations, as well as the desire linked to the promise they constitute, embodying itself in an emotion or a feeling. How and from which angles cinema eroticism, through the emotions it produces and the bodies’ figurations it suggests, can help to think and reform political bodies? Based on Spinoza and Frederic Lordon’s structural approach of collective bodies, and proposing a conceptual shift toward physical body’s sensitive deconstruction experiments explored for example by surrealists, and especially by Hans Bellmer, we have analysed what dialectical exchanges eroticism and politic can develop in contemporary cinema. We have seen in what ways and within what limits desire subversion can today interrogate politic, then we have studied examples of bodies’ deconstruction by violence, poetics and imagination fed eroticism, before suggesting three political bodies apprehension trails throughout cinema eroticism, experimentally, artistically and technically translated: collective pleasure, world’s eroticization/poetization, and body notion’s sensory widening.
