Barker, Meg-John : Sexuality

A Graphic Guide

Sexuality delivers the goods, making the history and theory of sexuality downright sexy ... I learned more in one session with this book than I've figured out in a lifetime.' Christine Burns MBE, author of Trans Britain

They're back! Writer Meg-John Barker and artist Jules Scheele once again team up in this cheeky and informative comic-book follow-up to Queer and Gender

Sex is everywhere. It's in the stories we love - and the stories we fear. It defines who we are and our place in society ? at least we're told it ought to.

Sex and sexuality can seem like a house of horrors, full of monsters and potential pitfalls. We often live with fear, shame and frustration when it comes to our own sexuality, and with judgement when it comes to others'. Sex advice manuals, debates over sex work and stories of sexual "dysfunction" only add to our anxiety.

With compassion, humour, erudition and a touch of the erotic, Meg-John Barker and Jules Scheele shine a light through the darkness and unmask the monsters.

'A whistle-stop tour of our understanding of human sexuality through history, from the power dynamics of sodomy in the ancient world via the centuries-old stereotype of feminine passivity to scientific studies by the likes of Freud and Kinsey, indicates sexuality's shifting nature ... an erudite, eye-opening primer on our "fluid and ever unfolding" identities.'
