A sex-positive reader that presents sex as a social issue.

This popular reader has a strong sociological focus, highlighting the ways that social institutions—and the individuals within them—shape our understanding of sexuality and influence our behaviours, attitudes and identities. The readings, 50 percent of which are new to the Fifth Edition, cover a diverse range of sexual experiences, including new pieces on asexuality, online porn and PrEP for HIV prevention. The editors mix qualitative and quantitative empirical pieces, sexual narratives and articles from the popular press.
