Section on Sociology of Sexualities Paper Session. The Joys of Sex: Pleasure and Desire in Sexuality Studies

Mon, August 22, 4:30 to 6:10pm, TBA

Session Submission Type: Paper Session 100min


While pleasure and desire are frequently central to people’s experiences of sexuality, they are too often ignored by sexuality scholars. This session will focus on questions of joy, including empirical research on sexual pleasure and desire, methodological questions such as how to study joy and how to balance issues of pleasure and danger in studies of sexuality, and examinations of why scholars tend to overlook the joys of sex.
