Product Description

Why is it so hard to talk about sex and sexuality? In this crisp and compelling book, Amin Ghaziani provides a pithy introduction to the field of sexuality studies through a distinctively cultural lens. Rather than focusing on sex acts, which make us feel flustered and blind us to a bigger picture, Ghaziani crafts a conversation about sex cultures that zooms in on the diverse contexts that give meaning to our sexual pursuits and practices. Unlike sex, which is a biological expression, the word 'sexuality' highlights how the materiality of the body acquires cultural meaning as it encounters other bodies, institutions, regulations, symbols, societal norms, values, and worldviews. Think of it this way: sex + culture = sexuality. Sex Cultures offers an introduction to sexuality unlike any other. Its case-study and debate-driven approach, animated by examples from across the globe and across disciplines, upends stubborn assumptions that pit sex against society. The elegance of the arguments makes this book a pleasurable read for beginners and experts alike.

Review

Sex Cultures is a wonderful introduction to how to think about sexuality today. Unlike so many sexuality textbooks, here's a teaching resource that elegantly weaves its way through cultural codes, political programs, and moral debates. Steven Epstein, Professor of Sociology and John C. Shaffer Professor in the Humanities, Northwestern University This is the book we have been waiting for - a comprehensive and engaging overview of the field of sexuality accessible to beginning students that also provides a concise and updated review of the field for graduate students. Beautifully written and insightful, Ghaziani's text cleverly couches major theoretical perspectives and empirical questions in case studies that will be invaluable to both instructors and students. Verta Taylor, Professor of Sociology and Feminist Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara
