Sexual Life in Ancient China: (Sinica Leidensia, Volume LVII)

The ancient Chinese believed that human sexuality was analogous to 'cosmic' procreation. They saw absolutely no difference between rain wetting a field and semen fertilizing the womb of a woman, or between a damp soil ready for sowing seed and a moist vagina ready for penetration.

Radical Sex Between Men: Assembling Desiring-Machines

'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 prov...

The Catholic Church on Marital Intercourse

The subtitle of this 2010 work is: "From Confessing Sins to Liberating Consciences." Keenan describes the history of the changes in Catholic moral theology from mid twentieth century to the present.

The moral theologians considered are shown to have moved beyond the "'all too often one-sidedly...
