This textbook looks at how we talk about sex and why we talk about it the way we do." "Drawing on a wide range of examples, from personal ads to phone sex, from sadomasochistic scenes to sexual assault trials, the book provides a clear introduction to the relationship between language and sexuality. Using a broad definition of 'sexuality', the book encompasses not only issues surrounding sexual orientation and identity - for instance whether gay men and lesbians use language differently from straight people - but also questions about the discursive construction of sexuality and the verbal expression of erotic desire." "This Textbook will be welcomed by students and researchers in sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology and gender/sexuality studies, as well as anyone interested in the relationship between language and sex."--BOOK JACKET."
