Mark S. Bonham Centre Sexual Representation Collection
University of Toronto
The Sexual Representation Collection (SRC) is Canada’s largest university-based collection of pornography. In addition, it includes a significant collection of materials related to the social and legal regulation of sexual representations in Canada. The collection contains roughly 2,000 VHS videocassettes and DVDs, 1,000 magazines, 500 pulp novels, hundreds of 35mm slides, floppy discs, 8mm film, 8mm cassette tapes, and 267 linear feet of personal papers, legal documents, reports, art, kink objects, and unique ephemera dating from the 1950s to the present. SRC is administered by the Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto. The SRC aids in the recovery and preservation of pornography, and materials related to their social and legal regulation, production, circulation, and consumption. Its mission is to acquire, preserve, organize, and give public access to information and materials in any medium about sexual representation, with particular attention paid to feminist, queer, and kink material.
