Bringing together theory and public health practice, this interdisciplinary collection analyses three forms of nonconventional or radical sexualities: bareback sex, BDSM practices, and public sex. Drawing together the latest empirical research from Brazil, Canada, Spain, and the USA, it mobilizes queer theory and poststructuralism, engaging the work of theorists such as Bataille, Butler, Deleuze and Guattari, and Foucault, among others. While the collection contributes to current research in gender and sexuality studies, it does so distinctly in the context of empirical investigations and discourses on critical public health. Radical Sex Between Men: Assembling Desiring-Machines will be of interest to advanced undergraduate students, postgraduate students, and researchers in gender and sexuality studies, sexology, social work, anthropology, and sociology, as well as practitioners in nursing, medicine, allied health professions, and psychology.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Mid-century ethnographers mapping the `deviant', exotic, gay subcultures such as cruising, the baths and `tearoom', could not have anticipated the civil liberties discourses that increasingly focused on the person and identities. However, the body and some sexual praxes retain a `radical', transgressive seditious otherness. These sophisticated essays draw on post-structuralism, queer theory and other theoretical perspectives to provide a timely, nuanced interdisciplinary re-imagining of power and resistance of erotic bodily practices in contemporary discursive formations of `rad' sex.' - Professor Anthony Pryce-Curling, University of Greenwich, UK

'Theoretically and empirically rich this fascinating book breaks through limiting discourse to reveal new vistas on sexuality for all. Astonishing.' - Dr Helen Lees, York St John University, UK
