  • "An Open and Public Scandal" in the Transvaal: The 1906 Bucknill Inquiry
           in a Global Context
    • Abstract: In 1906 an international scandal erupted over allegations of sodomy among Chinese mine workers in the British-ruled Transvaal Colony in southern Africa. In a letter to Lord Elgin, the British colonial secretary, the British parliamentarian Frederick Mackarness wrote that the rampancy of sodomy among the Chinese was "undisputed by all those white men" on the Rand. Mackarness further asserted that the sleeping accommodations of the Chinese workers were "calculated to produce this result"; that sodomy took place on the open veld, as well as in the dormitories; that venereal diseases of the rectum were prevalent among the Chinese; and that the Chinese were encouraging the practice of sodomy among the ...

  • Trouble at the "Crossroads": Divisions over the Use of Religious Symbols
           as AIDS Memorials in Houston, 1991
    • Abstract: By 1991 the city of Houston, Texas, was the location of both several major organized gay and lesbian groups and a serious AIDS epidemic that showed no signs of stopping. Over the preceding decade, the city's gays and lesbians and their allies had thrown themselves into fundraising and activism while at the same time doing their best to mitigate the heavy communal emotional toll of so many tragic and terrifying losses.1 One particular attempt to memorialize those lost to AIDS was Crossroads '91, a public display and fundraising effort by AIDS Foundation Houston intended to represent some of the many Houstonians who had died in the epidemic. However, this display turned into a fight that set factions of Houston's gay ... Read More

  • Before Onanism: Women's Masturbation in Seventeenth-Century England
    • Abstract: In 1689 the following passage was published in London in an English translation of Dutch physician Isbrand van Diemerbroeck's Anatomy of Human Bodies: "I my self formerly knew a woman, of no mean quality, that made her Complaints to me, that when she was young, and feeling the Itch of Lechery, she was wont often to rub her Clitoris with her Finger, and so was wont to provoke her self to spend her Seed with great delight."1 Van Diemerbroeck describes his acquaintance, apparently a gentlewoman, as being both afflicted and pleasured by this ejaculation of seed. Before the late seventeenth-century discovery of female ovaries, early modern medical theory proposed that women produced seed and that this seed contributed ... Read More

  • For the Duration Only: Interracial Relationships in World War II Britain
    • Abstract: August 25, 1945, Bristol: A mob of British girls besieged the army barracks housing black GIs about to return to America, singing Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters' version of "Don't Fence Me In" in protest against the soldiers' imminent departure. As the young women broke through the barrier and attempted to rush the departing train, they shouted, "To hell with the US Army colour bars! We want our coloured sweethearts!"1September 29, 1945, Baltimore: "The British Want Us to Go Home," read one headline from the Afro-American. "The whole thing seems to hinge on the fact that colored troops are too well liked by the girls wherever they are stationed," wrote journalist Ollie Stewart. One black GI in his report ... Read More

  • The Letters of Ethel Smyth to Edith Somerville, 1918–1921: A

    • Abstract: Now I find myself building on the hope, or rather the fact, that you will write about your friend as long as you can hold a pen, though I know much water must flow under the bridge till many things can be said.We both gave ourselves away in our letters to a rather deplorable extent.Dame Ethel Smyth (1858–1944), the English composer and suffragette, wrote 470 letters comprising over 2,000 pages to Edith Œ. Somerville (1858–1949), the Irish writer and half of the celebrated late Victorian literary collaboration known as Somerville and Ross, over the twenty-six years of their correspondence. Somerville almost certainly matched Smyth's output, although her letters from the relationship's intense and decisive first ... Read More

  • The Kinsey Institute: The First Seventy Years by Judith A. Allen et al.

    • Abstract: The Kinsey Institute, based at Indiana University and named after its founder, Alfred Kinsey, is one of the world's most famous organizations for the study of human sexuality. Judith Allen and five other authors bring together parts of the institute's story in this reasonably concise history, which covers the period from its founding in 1947 to its seventieth anniversary in 2017.Alfred Kinsey himself comes to the fore in the book's early chapters, and the authors explore the impact of his most well-known publications: Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, which was published in 1948 and reached second place on the New York Times best-seller list, and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female, which was published in 1953. ...

  • Entangled: A History of American Methodism, Politics, and Sexuality by
           Ashley Boogan Dreff (review)
    • Abstract: If you have followed the turmoil that has rocked Mainline Protestants in the United States over the last few decades, then you have observed that questions of human sexuality have been at the forefront. Such debates have caused fractures within the Mainline denominations, and the United Methodist Church is now poised for its own division over debates regarding the inclusion (or exclusion) of LGBTQ persons in membership, the clergy, and the episcopacy. From outside, this appears as a recent flashpoint. But those Methodists who have weathered the storms of doctrinal and ethical questions for nearly half a century find this looming rupture to be part of a long arc of Methodist history.Ashley Dreff has provided a ...

    • Abstract: The year was 2010; the course was a graduate seminar titled the History of Sexuality. The problem of the absence of religion in historical monographs about sex confronted the students early in the semester. Thanks to Richard Godbeer's Sexual Revolution in Early America, the participants in our seminar learned to understand the Puritans' occasionally less than puritanical sexual behaviors.1 Few other readings on the syllabus concerned themselves with the role of religion in the history of sex. In the last decade, this field has grown substantially. New histories have interrogated the coconstitutive relationship between religion and sexuality, complicating what we thought we knew about religion and sex in the United ... Read More

  • Itch, Clap, Pox: Venereal Disease in the Eighteenth-Century Imagination by
           Noelle Gallagher (review)
    • Abstract: Noelle Gallagher's Itch, Clap, Pox provides a delightful and important study of the ways in which the eighteenth-century British imagination grappled with venereal disease. Well researched, thoughtfully argued, and nicely illustrated, this book makes a significant contribution to a branch of sexuality studies that has flourished in recent years: the study of venereal disease and its cultural implications. By the eighteenth century, pox, or syphilis ("the French disease"), had long been endemic rather than epidemic, but it remained potentially fatal. Clap, or gonorrhea, was taken more lightly, even though it was believed to be an early stage of pox, while the "itch" lumped together scabies and other genital ... Read More

  • Exile within Exiles: Herbert Daniel, Gay Brazilian Revolutionary by James
           N. Green (review)
    • Abstract: Written by Brazilianist James N. Green, Exile within Exiles is a political biography of an important, albeit forgotten, figure in the struggle for democracy in Brazil: the writer, human rights activist, and former guerrilla fighter Herbert Daniel. The aim of the book is to rethink existing narratives about contemporary Brazilian history from the trajectory of someone who occupied the margins of political and social life. In a clear and accessible narrative, the book revisits Daniel's life, with a special emphasis on his activism in the Left. The book establishes a fruitful dialogue with historiography and social science studies, notably with the history of the armed struggle against the military regime, the process ... Read More

  • The Book of Minor Perverts: Sexology, Etiology, and the Emergences of
           Sexuality by Benjamin Kahan (review)
    • Abstract: In this book Benjamin Kahan reviews the classic sexological literature to identify the historical etiologies of the "minor perverts" that he claims were foreclosed by "the biological simplification and division of bodies into homo and hetero" (4). He hopes to recapture the complexity and ambiguity of nosologies of sexual aberration in the era before the "great paradigm shift" of the late nineteenth century, which created two categories of beings based on sexual object choice that have dominated our understandings of sexuality to this day. Kahan is equally interested in the "vernacular" sexology he finds in literary texts contemporary to the classic medical texts of Ellis, Freud, Krafft-Ebing, Moll, Forel, Bloch ... Read More

  • Medicine, the Penal System, and Sexual Crimes in England, 1919–1960s:
           Diagnosing Deviance by Janet Weston (review)
    • Abstract: Janet Weston's Medicine, the Penal System, and Sexual Crimes in England, 1919–1960s: Diagnosing Deviance examines medical approaches toward people accused and convicted of sexual offenses in England. Through its five substantive chapters the book builds a coherent and convincing image of these approaches. It begins with an overview of the intersecting medical, legal, and penal practices in England during the early and mid-twentieth century. Chapter 2 then explores how sexual offenders came to be seen as a separate type of criminal and discusses which sexual offenders were thought to be appropriate subjects of medical research. Chapter 3 argues that there was an "ontological anarchy" at the heart of the English ... Read More

  • My Body, My Business: New Zealand Sex Workers in an Era of Change by Caren
           Wilton (review)
    • Abstract: The last time I was in Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, I was intrigued by the "walk" symbol on pedestrian traffic lights. It was the silhouette of a drag queen, strutting proudly in miniskirt and high heels. I thought this was cool but did not understand the significance until I read this book. At the turn of the twentieth century, New Zealand was known for its pioneering social legislation. A century on, New Zealand continues to engage in bold social experimentation, including legislative reforms that have had an important impact on attitudes toward the sex industry and other controversial aspects of sexuality. This collection of interviews with sex workers looks at the impact of these reforms on the ... Read More
