WGSS 26600 - Our Bodies, Our Politics


Sex and sexuality are commonly understood as an innate drive, but as science has recently begun to show, the way we experience sexuality is better understood as a series of connected cultural practices. It is the constructed meaning attached to the act of sex that make up the foundation of our sexuality. This meaning changes across cultures and communities and has historically been a subject of political and legal struggle. From the battle for reproductive rights to laws limiting dildo ownership in Texas, our own bodies and the way we experience them are legislated and controlled.
