Essential lessons on the world we live in, from one of our greatest young thinkers – a guide to what everybody is talking about today

'Rigorously researched, but written with such spark and verve. The best non-fiction book I have read this year' Pandora Sykes

How should we talk about sex?


It is a thing we have and also a thing we do; a supposedly private act laden with public meaning; a personal preference shaped by outside forces; a place where pleasure and ethics can pull wildly apart.

To grasp sex in all its complexity – its deep ambivalences, its relationship to gender, class, race and power – we need to move beyond 'yes and no', wanted and unwanted. We need to rethink sex as a political phenomenon.

Searching, trenchant and extraordinarily original, The Right to Sex is a landmark examination of the politics and ethics of sex in this world, animated by the hope of a different one.
