A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER BLACKWELL’S BOOK OF THE YEAR 2021 Essential lessons on the world we live in, from one of our greatest young thinkers - a guide to what everybody is talking about today Unparalleled and extraordinary … A bracing revivification of a crucial lineage in feminist writing’ JIA TOLENTINO ‘I believe Amia Srinivasan’s work will change the world’ KATHERINE RUNDELL ‘Rigorously researched, but written with such spark and verve. The best non-fiction book I have read this year ‘ PANDORA SYKES ————————————- How should we talk about sex? It is a thing we have and also a thing we do; a supposedly private act laden with public meaning; a personal preference shaped by outside forces; a place where pleasure and ethics can pull wildly apart. To grasp sex in all its complexity - its deep ambivalences, its relationship to gender, class, race and power - we need to move beyond ‘yes and no’, wanted and unwanted. We need to rethink sex as a political phenomenon. Searching, trenchant and extraordinarily original, The Right to Sex is a landmark examination of the politics and ethics of sex in this world, animated by the hope of a different one.
