Availability: Ready to download

This book is the first to examine the social construction of sexual identity and the social stigma attached to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in East Asia. By studying sex work in the context of socio-economic change, the contributors persuasively argue that a discourse of sexuality forms a central point from which examinations of broader social and political relationships can take This book is the first to examine the social construction of sexual identity and the social stigma attached to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in East Asia. By studying sex work in the context of socio-economic change, the contributors persuasively argue that a discourse of sexuality forms a central point from which examinations of broader social and political relationships can take place. In an area where the discussion of sexuality is still largely a taboo subject, Sexual Cultures in East Asia provides a unique collection of case studies which highlight the difference between sexual attitudes within East Asia, and also the relationship between seemingly 'new' behaviour and traditional ideologies.; Specific issues discussed in relation to the AIDS epidemic and the social construction of sexual risk and sexual identity include: *how sexual identity is formed and/or transformed *networks which can channel or condition selection of sexual partners *the complex relationship between traditional filial duty and prostitution *gendered relations of power *the relationship between kinship, sex education, marriage, NGOs and sex By using a multidisciplinary approach, which includes sociological, medical and historical perspectives, Micollier highlights how East Asian sexual identity is most definitely a social construction. Designed specifically for social scientists and those involved in AIDS development programs, this book will appeal to anyone interested in sexuality and Asian cultures.
