This chapter presents a rethinking of the social construction of sexual identities and the sexual construction of society. It centers on the erotic body and its sexual practices, and introduces the concept of the “relationality” of gay sex. The chapter also argues for a more complex and subtle understanding of sociality as produced through the enactment of desire.

Keywords:   social construction, sexual identities, sexual construction, erotic body, sexual practices, relationality, gay sex, sociality, desire
