  • Introduction
  • Essentialism and constructivism in law
  • Legal conceptions of sexual nature and natural sex
  • Natural categories and non-categorical approaches to law and sexuality
  • Socially constructed conceptions of sexual violence
  • A moral shift
  • Some subjective truths about the objective truth of sex
  • Trouble ahead : an iconoclastic approach to sexual integrity in the law.
When legal scholars or judges approach the subject of sexuality, they are often constrained by existing theoretical frameworks. Queer theorists typically focus on sexual liberty but tend not to consider issues such as sexual violence; feminist theories focus on violence but often ignore the joy of sexuality. Craig examines the Supreme Court of Canada's approach to sexuality to assess the possibility of devising a legal theory of sexuality that can embrace both the good and the bad, ensuring equality without assimilation, diversity without exclusion, and liberty without suffering. Blending feminist theory with queer theory, she advances an iconoclastic approach to law and sexuality that has the power to transform both theory and practice.

Despite the advent of new sexual knowledges, new perspectives, new experiences even, we do not routinely or habitually reflect on the interface of social and legal dimensions of sexuality. Rather, the law is periodically reviewed in response to some crisis or campaign. The idea for the book thus came from awareness that it is important to explore some of the social and moral censures, contours and controversies that shape and mark the boundaries of sexuality. The production of the book has coincided with a major review and new legislation concerning sexual offences, fuelling the authors' concerns and making their explorations timely. Interdisciplinary in scope, drawing in biological, psychological, sociological and historical perspectives to set out the new battlegrounds of sexuality, for instance, but with particular emphasis on socio-legal issues, the book examines the following areas: the development of sexuality and the right to define one's sexuality; genetic maps and sexual politics; sexuality and same sex relationships in law; the law in relation to intersecting oppressions concerning lesbians, gay men and trans people; the sexual abuse of children and the limitations of the law; the contours of regulation concerning young people, 'sexual health', and prostitution; sexual freedoms versus protectionist debates; sexuality, desire and embodied performances in the workplace; sexuality, film and the law, and the law on sexuality in the everyday practice of the Care Standards Tribunal. The book also reviews the recent reform of sexual offences and examines the current vogue for psychological treatment interventions for sexual offenders. This book offers a highly original and exciting new exploration of contemporary socio-legal issues in relation to different sexual positions.

Sex, although considered by many in our culture the quintessential private activity, is blanketed by a large number and variety of laws. This text presents a concise compendium of the America's sex laws and brings together in one place, and summarizes, the laws regulating personal sexual activity. In doing so, the book reveals gaps, anachronisms, anomalies, inequalities , and irrationalities, and provides an empirical basis for studies of sexual regulation. In some states, for example, sexual relations between consenting adults of the same sex is a crime, in some states the age of consent to marriage is lower for females than for males, and in some states marital rape is not a crime. Such a mixed quilt of state laws means that a sexual practice that is perfectly legitimate in one state is illegal in another.

A rape victim charges that pornography caused her attacker to become a sex offender. A lesbian mother fights for custody of her child. A transsexual pilot is fired by a commercial airline after undergoing sex change and sues for sexual discrimination. A homosexual is denied employment because of sexual orientation. The law has much to say about sexual behaviour, but what it says is rarely influenced by the findings of social science research. This book focuses on the dynamic interplay between sexual science and legal decision-making. Reflecting the author's wide experience as a respected sex researcher, expert witness, and lawyer, "Sexual Science and the Law" provides insights into some of the most controversial social and sexual topics. Drawing on his knowledge of the relevant research and citing from case law and court transcripts, Richard Green demonstrates how the work of sexual science could bring about a transformation in jurisprudence, informing the courts in their deliberations on issues such as sexual privacy, homosexuality, prostitution, abortion, pornography, and sexual abuse. In each case he considers, Green shows how the law has been shaped by social science or impoverished by reliance on conjecture and received wisdom. He examines the role of sexual science in legal controversy, its analysis of human motivation and behaviour, and its use by the courts in determining the relative weight to be given the desires of the individual, the standards of society, and the power of the state in limiting sexual autonomy. This book should interest and educate professional and layperson alike - those lawyers, judges, sex educators, therapists, patients, and citizens who find themselves standing nonplussed at the meeting place of morality and behaviour.

Regulating Sex discusses the various ways that sex and sexuality are regulated by government and society. From the "clean-up" of Times Square to "the closet" to the sodomy statutes still on the books in many states, there are numerous methods for government to intervene and otherwise seek to influence sexuality and sexual behavior. Topics include: sexual abuse in families, sex tourism in the Caribbean, U.S. sodomy statutes, the politics of the closet, child prostitution, trans-gender rights and migration. This collection has an impressive array of contributors writing on compelling topics.

We live at an age when sex, gender and sexualities can no longer be presumed to be non-political, pre-political or even marginal. Political activity and activism around sexual politics have pervaded and transformed the political agenda. As a consequence, these developments gave rise to significant changes in all areas of political life, from electoral politics and local government to public policy and international relations. This book recognises sexuality as a mainstream concept in political analysis and explores issues in the politics of sexuality that are highly salient and controversial today. These include conceptions of citizenship and nationality linked to gender and sexuality, the legislation about the age of concent, prostitution and traffiking in women, the international politics of population control, abortion and sexual harassment, and sexuality in the military. The international team of contributors provide a wide range of perspectives in a variety of contexts. On a national level they offer illustrative case studies from the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Spain and Israel among others, and on an international plane they cover the European Union, the UN Conference on Population and Development and the role of the Vatican as an international arbiter. Moreover, the volume addresses the interaction between political discourse and the work of major theorists such as Weber, Freud, Foucault, Irigaray and Butler. Politics of Sexuality proposes new methodological enquiries on the definition of sexuality and its role in politics, and furthers the debate on how sexual politics determine and construct the identities of citizens. A rich and challenging addition to the literature of political science this volume will interest all those who seek to explore all the political and intellectual changes associated with the emergence of sexuality as a political issue.
