Abstract

The paper deals with ways of representing sexual relations in movies about the post-apocalypse. Different forms of sexual relations which occur in a postapocalyptic setting are considered with regard to two types of communities/ societies which emerge after the end of the world. These movies indicate how much the idea of an instinctual, natural, biological sexuality is widespread in popular imagination – in the post-apocaypse sex is represented as a motivational force on par with hunger.
