This anthology collects fifteen years of sexuality research by Ho Petula Sik Ying and Tsang Ka Tat, showing how the authors’ viewpoints and constructs in sexuality have changed in re­cent decades, thereby opening more discussion space on sexuality. Ho and Tsang provide an exemplary model of community-based research on sexual and erotic attitudes and practices of gay men and middle-aged women in Hong Kong over a span of over fifteen years. The anthology is divided into five parts and covers elite discourse and everyday language used in sexuality studies, the body and its sexual or­gans, identity and its relation to sexuality, re­lationships in marriages, multiple sexual part­ners and inter-racial partnerships as well as desire and how it relates to money, happiness and the self.
