Whether uncovering their faces or hiding them, Asian American men use the power of intimate internet industries, the online production and consumption of the body, in order to achieve a kind of visual proximity that crosses the distance of their usual otherness. In their use of porn and explicit imagery, Keni Styles and Nguyen Tan Hoang combine pleasure and politics so as to critique the limits placed on their sexual choices and opportunities.
