The sanitation of sex—the regulation of reproductive and nonreproductive sexualities, sexual encounters, and venereal diseases along moral, hygienic, gendered, and racial codes—was a core issue of the modern biopolitical management of bodies. Sexuality being a key issue to negotiate authority was also omnipresent in the occupation Japan. The introduction discusses the state of the art in the study of occupied Japan and integrates Sanitized Sex in a larger historiography on sexuality, gender, and race in the history of imperialism and colonialism beyond Japanese history and studies.
