Global Sex

Dennis Altman


This book takes on the globalization of sexuality, examining the ways in which desire and pleasure—as well as ideas about gender, political power, and public health—are framed, shaped, or commodified by a global economy in which more and more cultures move into ever-closer contact.

Keywords: sexuality, globalization, desire, pleasure, gender, political power, public health, global economy
