The purpose of this paper is to examine some aspects of the commodification of sex from a transgender perspective. By using references in trans*-related literature (especially that produced by transgender authors, such as Susan Stryker and Julia Serano) and drawing from my own personal experiences, I intend to analyze how the commodification of sex is associated with exotified perceptions of human bodies, which in turn are influenced by cis-, male-, and straight-centered ideologies.
