This chapter discusses male sexualities and sexual cultures in Indonesia. It studies the complex ways the construction of masculinity takes place, not only in relation to women and femininity, but also in relation to the waria gender category. It also expands on the significant attention given to “third gender” categories in recent anthropological and cross-cultural research. Finally, the chapter shows the extent to which gender power and sexual domination are not a function of gender differences in “the mainstream sense,” but are actually functions of class distinctions, age differences, and unequal power relations in society.

Keywords:   male sexualities, sexual cultures, Indonesia, construction of masculinity, waria, third gender category, gender power, sexual domination, gender differences
