"Sexuality in Greek and Roman Culture" is the first comprehensive survey of ancient Greek and Roman sexuality. It covers a wide range of subjects, including Greek pederasty and the symposium, ancient prostitution, representations of women in Greece and Rome, and the public regulation of sexual behavior. It introduces readers to the bitter theoretical debates that have been fought about gender and sexuality in the classical world. The material is ordered chronologically. It draws parallels between ancient sexual ideology and contemporary culture. It draws on literary, artistic and archaeological sources, as well as secondary scholarly sources. It is theoretically sophisticated and skillfully argued, yet accessible.
