Abstract:

Taking on those who would limit our sexual freedom, New Sexual Agendas challenges the notion that there is a fixed sexual behavior for men and women. The collection is a convening of the minds across disciplines: women's studies, literature, gender studies, cultural studies, history, politics, and education, as well as sociologists, medical doctors, and psychologists. Including well known thinkers such as Jeffrey Weeks, Leonore Tiefer, and Mary McIntosh, New Sexual Agendas explores our sexual legacy, from turn of the century sexologists to the inequalities of sexually invested social structures, from the rise of the Right and its portent for sexual freedoms to the myth of women as the subordinate sex. Along the way it explores the limits of trust in intimate relationships, the escalating AIDS epidemic, and the dangers of prescribed sex roles for both heterosexual and homosexual relationships.
