Drawing on interviews with Chinas foremost sex experts, this book provides a detailed examination of the political, social and moral ramifications of gender, sex and sexuality in China today. The author focuses on sexual normality, technical and medical interventions to alleviate dysfunction and on norms for sexual behavior and activity, and questions the claim that China is becoming more liberalized in relation to sexual matters. Including groundbreaking material on transsexuals, fetishism, sex aids and pornography, this book shows that the sexual knowledge being produced is neither innocent nor inconsequential and that amid catalogues of prescriptions linking self-management to the collective good, people are making decisions about how to live their sexual lives. The book presents the most up-to-date empirical research in the field and as such will be of great interest to scholars of Chinese studies, cultural studies and gender studies.
