Sexual (Dis)Orientation : Gender, Sex, Desire and Self-Fashioning, Paperback / softback Book

Sexual (Dis)Orientation : Gender, Sex, Desire and Self-Fashioning Paperback / softback

Description

Tamsin Wilton interviewed close to a hundred women in order to understand how we go about constructing a sexual identity as 'lesbian' or 'heterosexual'.

How do women experience desire? What are the differences between men and women as sexual partners?

How do desire, pleasure, intimacy, gender and morality become part of women's sense of self?

Asking these, and other questions, this study breaks through the stand-off between essentialists and constructionists to propose a fresh re-thinking of the desiring self.
