Love & Eroticism

Edited by:


March 1999 | 440 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This major collection explores the contested nature of love and eroticism, examining the ways in which erotic bodily pleasures have become central to contemporary consumer culture. It investigates the spatial dimension of erotic life through considerations of Bohemian love, the gay city and the ways in which the urban landscape and everyday life have become sexualized - issues which have become central to the emergence of `queer' as a new form of gender politics and more general questions of sexual citizenship.

Drawing on the work of feminists, sociologists and cultural theorists, this book contains a wide-ranging and accessible set of contributions to contemporary debates on sexuality, love and eroticism.

Love & Eroticism is simultaneously published as volume 15, issue 3-4 of Theory, Culture & Society.
