YANEZ-URBINA, Cristopher; CALQUIN DONOSO, Claudia  and  GUERRA-ARRAU, Rodrigo. Media confessions and cultural pornification: Interpretive repertories of “ El Chacotero Sentimental ” (1996-2000) in the written press. Psicoperspectivas [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.2, pp.103-113. ISSN 0718-6924.

This work investigates the versions of the notion of "sexuality of chileans" and their relationship with what we call the ‘media confession’ as they are constructed in the news and articles of the written press in Chile and that allude to the program radio “El Chacotero Sentimental” (1996-2000). A discourse analysis was performed with the analytical tool of Interpretive Repertoires to a corpus conformed by 10 articles. The results give account of five repertoires: Psi Discourse, Collective Anonymous, Divorce of Reality, Euphemistic, and Chacotero. From the list of these repertories some discursive practices are outlined that organize the relationship between sexuality and confession, among which the exclusion of individual agencies and the intensification of the anonymous mass, the function of silencing discomfort, the construction of a national identity and the sexuality regulation; topics and objects of enunciation through which the journalistic media discuss freedom of expression and sexuality during post-dictatorship.

Keywords : pornification; post-dictatorship; public/private; sexual freedom.
