Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Regulating Sex discusses the various ways that sex and sexuality are regulated by government and society. From the "clean-up" of Times Square to "the closet" to the sodomy statutes still on the books in many states, there are numerous methods for government to intervene and otherwise seek to influence sexuality and sexual behavior. Topics include: sexual abuse in families, sex tourism in the Caribbean, U.S. sodomy statutes, the politics of the closet, child prostitution, trans-gender rights and migration. This collection has an impressive array of contributors writing on compelling topics.

Synopsis:

Regulating Sex is an anthology that presents debates over the role of the state in constructing and controlling erotic practice, intimacy, and identity. The purpose of this edited volume is to address sexual dilemmas in law and the state in substantive areas such as same-sex domestic partnerships, sexual economies, and childhood sexuality via a series of spirited dialogues between socio-legal scholars from diverse disciplinary, national, and political perspectives.
