Title: The Language and Sexuality Reader
Edited By: Deborah Cameron
Don Kulick
URL: http://www.routledge.com/shopping_cart/products/product_detail.asp?sku=&isbn=9780415363075&parent_id
Description:

The Language and Sexuality Reader is the first of its kind to bring
together material from the fields of anthropology, communication studies,
linguistics, medicine and psychology in an examination of the role of
sexuality in written and spoken language. Organized into thematic sections,
the Reader addresses:

*early documentation of vocabulary used by male homosexuals and later work
on the existence of a discourse style signifying gay identity

*the use of language by individuals to present themselves as sexual and
gendered subjects

*the way language reflects, reinforces or challenges cultural norms
defining

*what is "natural" and desirable in the sphere of sex

*the verbal communication of sexual desire in different settings, genres
and media.
