How do women experience desire? How do they describe the differences between their male and their female lovers? Why do some women feel that they were 'born' either gay or straight and while others feel they made a conscious choice?
Professor Tamsin Wilton interviewed close to a hundred women to explore female sexuality from an entirely new angle. Breaking free from the polarisation of standard essentialist versus constructionist perspectives, Sexual (Dis)Orientation offers a new way of approaching desire, tracing the threads of pleasure, morality, sex and love as they are woven into women's sense of themselves as sexual beings.
Rich in interview material, timely and startlingly original, this important contribution to debates on gender, sexuality and intimacy should be on the shelves of anyone with an interest in the everyday erotic.
