"Wide-ranging research suggests that partners in gay male and bisexual relationships do not necessarily expect monogamy, or see it as an important issue. Although the frequency of gay male and bisexual non-monogamous partnerships tends to be widely acknowledged in social science literature, these relationships hove rarely been explored in more detail. By providing empirical data, analysis and theoretical debate, this book makes a contribution to the sociological literature on sexual and intimate relationships. More specifically it explores the diversity of gay male and bisexual relationship practices in the context of heteronormative citizenship and intra-social movement conflict, and highlights the complexity of power relations that circumscribe queer people's relationships and sexual lives. The Spectre of Promiscuity provides insights for further studies on sexual culture, discourse, citizenship, politics and ethics."--BOOK JACKET.
