69 Questions about Sex

Original title: 69 questions sur le sexe


Sex is an important subject for the human and social sciences. It raises questions about the body, intimacy, norms, taboos, human relations, education, the media, freedom, desire, consent, the law, etc.

On the one hand, we are more liberal and more curious: our practices are diversifying, our imaginations are becoming richer; homo, bi, trans or asexuals are gaining in visibility. On the other hand, new prohibitions and injunctions are emerging, driven by a morality that is more health and psychological than religious. Standards are shifting.

Sex is like a mirror ball: central, multiple and reflective. It animates and agitates us. Knowledge and images about it are as fragmented as a puzzle. But it deserves to be examined, and in examining it, to examine ourselves.
