  • “A Fabric of Infamy”: The Sodomitical Life of Jean
           François de Rougemont
    • Abstract: Men who sought sex with men, unlike women who sought sex with women, often did so in public places in eighteenth-century Paris. As a result the archives contain hundreds of reports about men the police called infâmes, “infamous types,” in the 1720s.1 Michel Rey, who explored sexual relations between Parisian men in a number of articles published in the 1980s and 1990s, used the separate morals series but not the regular prisoners series in the Archives de la Bastille in his research.2 The former series includes thirty-six, and the latter series includes sixty-seven dossiers from 1723 alone, with minimal overlap between them.3 I have used complementary documents from both series, especially the ...

  • Anxiety and Desire in France’s Gay Pornographic Film Boom,
           1974–1983
    • Abstract: In September 1975 the cover of the French society weekly Paris Match featured three bemused-looking nuns standing before an advertisement for the pornographic film Julia et les hommes (Julia), the image accompanied by the headline “La France Porno.” Inside, a (fully illustrated) special report agonized over the “wind that has come to sweep away old taboos.” According to the magazine, this wind originated in America, with Hugh Hefner and his photogenic entourage the prime culprits: “Eroticism and pornography are spreading, aided with the complicity of businessmen who intend to stimulate weak sectors of industry and with the blessing of intellectuals anxious to hasten the liberation of humanity.”1 To the ...

  • The Invention of Bad Gay Sex: Texas and the Creation of a Criminal
           Underclass of Gay People
    • Abstract: The recent progress in the area of lesbian and gay rights in the United States has occasioned a good deal of triumphalism.1 Many accounts, both scholarly and popular, have not only celebrated the rise of lesbian and gay rights under the Obama administration but also described what appears—at least in retrospect—to have been their steady, surprising, and inexorable expansion since the 1970s. According to that conventional narrative, lesbians and gay men have slowly but surely gained ever-greater access to full citizenship in many spheres of life.2 The received story of homosexual emancipation is not wrong, exactly. Indeed, it is hard to think of another group whose social and legal status has ... Read More

  • Sex in the Seventies: Gay Porn Cinema as an Archive for the History of
           American Sexuality
    • Abstract: Pornography . . . is profoundly and paradoxically social. But even more than that, it’s acutely historical. It’s an archive of data about our history as a culture and our own individual histories—our formations as selves. . . . Pornography is a space in the social imagination as well as a media form. The forty years between 1960 and 2000 were among the most tumultuous decades in the history of gay male sexuality. For many gay men who came out in the period after the Stonewall riots in New York in 1969, the seventies were a golden age of sexual freedom.1 It was an era during which it became possible for American men to openly acknowledge their homosexuality and foster a sense of identity and community ...

  • Remaking the Maternal Body in England, 1680–1730
    • Abstract: Aristotle’s Masterpiece WAS the most popular medical book about sex and babies from its first publication in London in 1684 through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; it quickly became a steady seller on both sides of the Atlantic, going into hundreds of editions. The book’s anonymous author advised readers about how frequently a married couple should have sex: “The Bridegroom should remember, that it is a Market that lasts all the Year, and to be careful that he does not spend his Stock too lavishly.”1 Sexual relations were thus imagined as market relations, with men as active purchasers and women as the passive objects of consumption. Since in early modern England most actual markets were not open ... Read More

  • Urban Reform and Sexual Vice in Progressive-Era Philadelphia by James H.
           Adams (review)
    • Abstract: In 1913 Walter Lippmann called Progressive Era moral reformers “well meaning, but unmeaning,” arguing that they tried to solve the human problem of prostitution by neglecting the realities of human nature and the problems of the day. James H. Adams takes the same view in this book about reform and public policy in Philadelphia. Adams explores the intersections of prostitution, moral reform, and municipal government in an attempt to understand why so much concerted activity produced so few fundamental changes. He concludes that the forces for reform created archetypes that bore little relation to reality and that complicated movements for change because the public believed the archetypes and because the ...

  • Entanglements of Empire: Missionaries, Māori, and the Question of the
           Body by Tony Ballantyne (review)
    • Abstract: In this lucid and nuanced rereading of the missionary archive in early New Zealand, Tony Ballantyne makes impressively wide-ranging arguments about the centrality of the body to the thickening “entanglements” between indigenous peoples and British evangelists between 1814 and 1840. In this period, the first Protestant missions were established in the far north of what was known to Europeans as New Zealand, which in 1840 was annexed as a British colony. Retracing well-trodden ground in this nation’s history writing, Ballantyne presents a fresh argument that the “reform of the indigenous body” was in fact central to the missionary enterprise in New Zealand and a key indicator to missionaries and others of its ...

  • Cruel Attachments: The Ritual of Child Molesters in Germany by John
           Borneman (review)
    • Abstract: In this intelligent and accessible book, anthropologist John Borneman challenges himself and his readers to understand the inner world of child molesters. At the center of his study is a rigorous ethnography of men convicted of child sex abuse undergoing rehabilitative therapy in contemporary Berlin, Germany. Borneman sat in on weekly therapy groups for convicted offenders, worked with a psychologist in a minimum security prison, and studied the case files of fifty adult men convicted of child sex abuse. As a skilled ethnographer, his primary goal is understanding, and he works to bring his reader into the psychic lives of those he studies. These are men guilty of crimes that threaten to place them outside ... Read More

  • Unnamed Desires: A Sydney Lesbian History by Rebecca Jennings (review)
    • Abstract: In Unnamed Desires, Rebecca Jennings has produced an important study of lesbian lives as they were lived in Sydney, Australia, in the fifties, sixties, and seventies. She describes a variety of life stories: those who lived openly and those who lived secretively; those who identified as lesbians and those who used other terms or none at all; those who set out to transform society and those who were content to live quietly, if they could; those who went out and those who stayed home. It is an important contribution to our understanding of lesbian history, queer history, and Australian history. It is a work that helps us to see the world more clearly. Historians of male homosexual life have long ... Read More

  • Metroimperial Intimacies: Fantasy, Racial-Sexual Governance, and the
           Philippines in U.S. Imperialism, 1899–1913 by Victor Román Mendoza
           (review)
    • Abstract: Making a significant contribution to US empire, Philippine, and gender and sexuality studies, Victor Román Mendoza’s Metroimperial Intimacies incisively examines the ways that US colonialism during and in the wake of the Philippine-American War (1899–1902) gave rise to an array of “social and sexual intimacies” that were shaped by and exceeded the biopolitical management, or “racial-sexual governance,” of the Philippine colonial subject (1). Mendoza tracks inter- and intraracial, homosocial and homoerotic, military and civilian, rural and transpacific intimacies across a variety of public and domestic spaces as they appear in the US colonial archive and in various forms of cultural production. The study ... Read More

  • Abortion after “Roe” by Johanna Schoen (review)
    • Abstract: In Abortion after “Roe,” Johanna Schoen argues that the 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade marked the beginning of a “protracted political, legislative, and legal battle over access to abortion” (11). The issue of access was fundamental, because, as Schoen explains, the decision did not guarantee women’s right to legal abortion. Rather, it overturned existing state regulations and expanded the right to privacy. Unlike previous histories of the abortion rights movement leading up to Roe, histories of the antiabortion activists opposed to Roe, or histories of legal challenges to legal abortion since Roe, Schoen focuses on abortion care, exploring how the battle over abortion affected both women having ...

  • Crescent City Girls: The Lives of Young Black Women in Segregated New
           Orleans by LaKisha Michelle Simmons (review)
    • Abstract: W. E. B. Du Bois’s momentous question “How does it feel to be a problem?” provides the starting point for this fascinating exploration of adolescent black girls’ experiences in the Jim Crow city. Rethinking Du Bois’s concept of double consciousness from their perspective, LaKisha Michelle Simmons describes how African American girls in New Orleans came to understand themselves while caught within a gendered “double bind of white supremacy and respectability” (5). She traces the ways that young women are surveilled, disciplined, and constrained by both racialized violence and the expectations of black middle-class elders, but she also reveals the meanings they make of their experiences and the pleasures they ...

  • The Devil’s Chain: Abolition and Social Control in Partitioned Poland by
           Keely Stauter-Halsted (review)
    • Abstract: In ten thematic chapters, Keely Stauter-Halsted analyzes the unprecedented concern, even panic, about the issue of commercial sex in the Polish lands. Over some forty years, from the 1880s to Polish reunification, an emerging national elite engaged in an ongoing debate over the causes and consequences of prostitution, believing that a resolution of the problem of commercial sex in partitioned Poland was crucial for national renewal. Stauter-Halsted employs the world(s) of prostitution in the Polish lands as a prism through which to analyze the Polish transition to modernity against the background of fitful attempts toward political independence. This highly original study of gendered nationalism addresses ... Read More
