The Right to Sex

We still do not know how to talk about sex. The current debate about sexual entitlement, objectification, rape culture and pornography fixates on the idea of consent as an objective frame through which to view most sexual encounters. Yet stripped of morality and ethics, consent is a blunt tool, of limited use when contemplating one of the oldest and most important problems: the shape and meaning of sex.

What is the meaning of sex in a culture where online pornography shapes the sexual psyches of almost all young people? How do we address the newly raised questions about sexual entitlement, from incels to the politics of desire (who is desired and who is not)? How do we deny that sex is a commodity to be evenly distributed whilst simultaneously insisting women have the right to sell it?

With her razor-sharp, untrammelled intellect and background in philosophy, Amia Srinivasan looks at some of the most complex problems that shape our intimate lives and our politics. Her fascinating thought process and her preoccupation with ethics offer a new way of thinking about sex. It is an approach that is gaining thousands of readers and supporters.
