summary
This anthology collects fifteen years of sexuality research by Petula Sik Ying Ho and A. Ka Tat Tsang, showing how the authors’ viewpoints and constructs in sexuality have changed in recent decades, thereby opening more discussion space on sexuality. Ho and Tsang provide an exemplary model of community-based research on sexual and erotic attitudes and practices of gay men and middle-aged women in Hong Kong over a span of over fifteen years. The anthology is divided into five parts and covers elite discourse and everyday language used in sexuality studies, the body and its sexual organs, identity and its relation to sexuality, relationships in marriages, multiple sexual partners and inter-racial partnerships as well as desire and how it relates to money, happiness and the self. Together with a Chinese edition, this material seeks to create a bridge between Chinese and Western scholarship on sexuality, allowing wider dissemination of academic knowledge in both languages.
