Sexuality and Socialism: Book Review
Sexuality and Socialism by Sherry Wolf was candy. I devoured the book in less than 24 hours. I didn’t expect the book to be as good as it was. Judging by the title, I thought that it would be a little dry. Instead, it was engaging, accessible, and humorous. The book was good in that it was a fast read that approached sexuality from a Marxist perspective. Grounding sexuality with materialism is something that I don’t often encounter as the dominant discourses around sexuality tend towards matters of biology and identity. The book offers a fascinating history with a critique of popular paradigms of sexuality.
