Sexual Cultures in East Asia: The Social Construction of Sexuality and Sexual Risk in a Time of AIDS
Routledge, Jun 1, 2004 - Health & Fitness - 312 pages
Using case-studies from East and Southeast Asia, this book examines sexuality and AIDS-related sexual risk in the context of Asian cultures. It offers a complementary perspective, documented with sociological and anthropological data, to historical studies and looks at commercial sex work, kinship systems, matrimonial strategies, gender, power relations, and the relevance of cultural constructs such as Confucianism and Taoism for the analysis of sexual cultures in Asia.
