This work examines the relationship between wounding and sexuality, bringing together issues around gender, power, violence and representation. Drawing on a range of disciplines, it explores social practices such as S&M, cosmetic surgery and extreme sports.
"This is a fascinating, challenging and timely book, drawing together an impressive list of international contributors. Exploring a wide range of issues around the relation between sex, violence and the body, it makes a significant contribution to the literature and will, I have no doubt, appeal to a wide readership across a range of disciplines. What is particularly original is approaching the sex-violence-body nexus through a specific focus on the 'erotics of wounding' and, in each of the subject areas addressed across the 12 chapters, the book clearly sets out the key conceptual issues, debates and challenges in this frequently misunderstood area. This is an important, insightful and challenging book." - Professor Richard Collier, Newcastle Law School, University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK.
