"Erotics and Politics" examines the intersection of the study of sexuality (particularly gay male studies) and gender (spceifically those concerned with feminist issues). In doing so, it covers a wide range of subjects important to gay and feminist movements of the past 25 years. These issues include gay liberational sexuality, sado-masochism, pornography, promiscuity, personal relationships, AIDS and postmodernity. The central focus of attention throughout is the nature and development of gay male sexuality and masculinity. This book is unique in its coverage of a wide range of topics and its analytical connection of these topics which are usually examined in isolation. Drawing upon both academic material as well as personal accounts, "Erotics and Politics" discusses such issues as how feminism and gay male sexuality enjoy a simultaneously collaborative and antagonistic relationship; how society has conflated issues of gay liberation, child abuse and sadomasochism.
