Sexual Cultures and Migration in the Era of AIDS is the first demographic anthropological study of what happens to sexual behaviour and the rules of risk-taking in sexual encounters when people migrate from countryside to city, from one city to another, or from one country to another culture. It represents a milestone in the study of cross-cultural sexuality and sexually transmitted diseases. At the foreground of the study are commercial sex and prostitution, sexual tourism, heterosexual marriage and social pressure, and homosexuality and bisexuality in emerging sexual cultures. The volume brings together quantitative and qualitative case studies by an international panel of anthropologists, demographers, and sociologists aimed at better understanding the impact of human movement and mobility on sexual change and fertility.

The members of IUSSP's Anthropological Demographic Committee have done a masterful job of presenting some of their recent work on sexual research across the regions of the world. While those who would want to engage in the study of 'sexual cultures' must look elsewhere for guidance, they can still learn much by reading essays in this book. - Y. Djamba International Migration Review pp209-210
