The Spectre of Promiscuity 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. By providing rich empirical data, thoughtful analysis and theoretical debate, the book makes a significant contribution to the literature on sexual and intimate relationships.
