Desire, Love, and Identity: Philosophy of Sex and Love combines classical readings with contemporary articles exploring love and sex as defining features of our identity. This volume includes readings from a wide variety of perspectives, addressing topics such as sexual objectification, sexual identity, the ethics of sex work, love and sex online, friendship, polyamory, and BDSM. Alongside ancient, modern, and contemporary selections are sixteen original contributions written by emerging voices in the field. A wide-ranging, engaging, accessible introduction to the subject, the text includes further readings and discussion questions to promote thought, discussion, and composition on subjects deeply intertwined with students' identities.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The up-to-date and original content, as well as the increase in critical/ feminist perspectives, makes this text unique from-and preferable to-other texts available. The fact that it covers both love and sex makes it stand out, as most courses cover both topics, but many texts focus on just one or the other." --Susan Dieleman, University of Saskatchewan "Desire, Love, & Identity: Philosophy of Sex and Love offers an engaging, accessible introduction to the exciting field of philosophy of love and it successfully stimulates further investigation in a very challenging, eternally problematic area -- not simply the sexual or the amorous encounter, but the encounter between self and the Other." --Dr. Rossitsa Terzieva-Artemis, Metapsychology Online
