Abstract

With reference to the use of financial technologies (fintech) in the emergent sex public of financial domination (findom), this report attempts to challenge and extend previous theorizations of desire in anthropology, queer studies, and the social sciences at large. By providing a close analysis of two financial technologies, GoogleWallet and the Amazon Wish List, and one form of live sociality, the real time, this article offers a general view on practices central to financial domination.
