This book describes the constructionist analysis of sexual cartographies. It offers a personal mapping of other people's mappings and investigates the construction of erotic desires and practices between males which is referred to as “male-male sexuality.” For the Japanese as in Western cultures, male-male relationships have been a key site over which sexual meanings have been challenged, although in historically distinct ways. The strikingness of male-male behavior within Japanese cultural ontology is illustrated by the fact that literally hundreds of categories and signifiers have emerged around it in the native languages over the centuries.
