The study of human sexuality within the social sciences is not a recent innovation. Why then do many people think of sociology, anthropology and psychology as latecomers to the study of sexuality? Why is queer studies seen as the brainchild of the humanities rather than the social sciences? In this text, Kath Weston traces a long but largely forgotten history of interest in sexuality in the social sciences, from Kinseys pioneering sex research in the 1950s, to the work of sexologists such as Masters and Johnson. What is different now, Weston argues, is that sexuality has been isolated from other contemporary issues. Her book exposes the paradox of studying sexuality as a thing unto itself when sexuality infuses all aspects of social life. Instead, she sexes up conventional subjects, such as kinship, race and labour, proving that once you start paying attention to sexuality, you can never look at social issues in the same way again.
