This book of critical rural geography breaks new ground by drawing attention to sex and sexualities outside the metropolis. It explores sexualities and sexual experiences in a variety of rural and marginal spaces with international contributions from a wide range of disciplines. These include: literary and cultural studies, lesbian and gay studies, geography, history and law. Among the topics uncovered are:
* a lesbian in rural England
* sexual life in rural Wales
* sexuality in rural South Africa
* scandal in the American South: sex, race and politics
* nature and homosexuality in literature
* Derry/Londonderry as a sexual space
* how 'country folk' are sexualised in popular culture.

The Professional Geographer 2001 ." "The very existence of this highly provocative collection of essays assures more debate and discussion in this fruitful and developing field of study" The Professional Geographer 2001 ."
