Transportation, mass media, emigration, multinational corporations, advances in modern communications and new information technologies all go towards making a borderless world of interconnected consumer culture. But the rapid process of globalization affects more than just the economy, it reshapes the way we conceive ourselves and our sexuality. This volume tackles the issues of globalization and sexuality. It looks at how pleasures of the body are framed, shaped, commercialized and commodified in the new global economy. The book explores the impact of globalization on gender relations, politics, public health, migration and the ways in which we imagine our own sense of place and self. Ranging from UN debates over abortion to the advent of cybersex, to the outbreak of AIDS in Africa, to the sex scandels that rocked both Malysia and the US, "Global Sex" sheds light on how the personal and the political are now becoming indistinguishable.
