The Politics of Pleasure in Sexuality Education : Pleasure Bound, Hardback Book


Pleasure and desire have been important components of the vision for sexuality education for over 20 years.

This book argues that there has been a lack of scrutiny over the political motivations that underpin research supportive of pleasure and desire within comprehensive sexuality education.

In this volume, key researchers in the field consider how discourses related to pleasure and desire have been taken up internationally.

They argue that sexuality education is clearly shaped by specific cultural and political contexts, and examine how these contexts have shaped the development of pleasure's inclusion in such programs.

Via such discussions, this volume incites a re-configuration of thought regarding sexuality education's approach to pleasure and desire.
