Alain Fleischer tackles a subject that has given rise to many clichés and commonplaces. Contrary to the educational tradition that sees sport as a way of channelling the libido, he shows the close links between physical exertion and sexuality. Just think of the athletes of ancient Greece, who competed naked! Just look at the close-ups on TV of the muscular plasticity of champions of both sexes, or the vogue for calendars featuring rugby players posing in the simplest of outfits! Today, the sporting body delivers the most seductive messages and proposes the new canons of physical fitness.
