Phile is a biannual journal exploring sexual subcultures, trends, and communities both obscure and well known from an overarching, sociological point of view. The biannual journal hones in on a wide range of questions surrounding sexuality and desire through a critical, sociological lens. Phile contains articles, interviews, photo essays and creative writing which explore how communities reject societal structures and create space to explore sexuality. The publication combines elements of an academic journal, an art book and an erotic magazine. Phile dissects forms and practices of sexuality with the aim to encourage a more empathetic understanding towards people and communities who live outside of normative or binary structures.
