This introductory chapter discusses human sexuality, a topic that has been previously ignored as a focus for social research and reflection. It first identifies the main reasons why human sexuality has suddenly become a topic of major interest, and then studies the changing paradigms within sexuality research. Next, it discusses the politics of gender, sexuality, and power, and outlines the succeeding chapters in detail.

Keywords:   human sexuality, social research, changing paradigms, sexuality research, gender, power
