Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Sociology of Sexualities, Second Edition!

Sociology of Sexualities takes a sociological approach to the study of sexualities and is unique in that it explores the ways sexuality operates in and through institutions. Drawing on the most up-to-date scientific research on sexuality, as well as the latest political developments on the issues, this core text helps students connect knowledge about sexuality with their broader understanding of society. The thoroughly revised Second Edition includes updated and expanded discussions of the latest sociological research and social justice movements regarding gender and sexuality, as well as a new chapter exploring sexuality and social class, space, and place.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.
