Identities, Behaviors, and Society

Second Edition

Michael Kimmel and The Stony Brook Sexualities Research Group

Featuring a variety of readings, this interdisciplinary anthology addresses such key questions as: How are sexualities socially constructed? Why are sexualities more than just natural "urges" or "drives"? and How are sexualities personal, social, and political? Sexualities: Identities, Behaviors, and Society, Second Edition, focuses on gender, using multiple disciplines, international populations, and theories to explore sexualities. Edited by Michael Kimmel and the Stony Brook Sexualities Research Group, the readings--including several written specifically for this volume--will grab students' attention. Topics range from the motivations of X-rated movie stars to vibrator use to gendered sexual fantasies. The text considers same-sex orientation, people of color, and global populations throughout.

New to this Edition:

  • Incorporates new pedagogy--including a glossary of key terms--and more insights from editor Michael Kimmel
  • More than thirty new readings
  • New, separate chapters on heterosexuality, LGBT identities, and non-normative sexual identities and practices
  • New chapters on topical subjects such as sexual technologies
  • "Personal Voice" and "By the Numbers" boxes appear throughout to supplement readings
