"Her Body, Himself: Gender in the Slasher Film" (1987) is an essay by Carol J. Clover published in Representations, Vol. 20 Autumn, 1987; (pp. 187-228).

In this essay, she coined the term "body genres":

"On the civilized side of the continuum lie the legitimate genres; at the other end, hard on the unconscious, lie the sensation or "body" genres, horror and pornography, in that order."
"horror and pornography are the only two genres specifically devoted to the arousal of bodily sensation".
