About the Authors
  • Men and Sex provides a comprehensive yet accessible account of male sexuality by using the theoretical concept of the 'sexual script' to illuminate different aspects of men's sexual behaviour. Graham begins by discussing different theories of sexuality, before providing a more detailed description of sexual script theory. This proposes how male sexual behaviour can be explained as a result of cultural influences modified by individual experience and personality as well as by interaction with others. Individual chapters detail the development of sexual scripts in childhood and adolescence, masturbation, cultural influences on sexuality, heterosexual behaviour, variations and problems in sexual functioning, homosexual behaviour, transsexualism, procreative sex, coercive sexual behaviour, the impact of physical and mental health problems on sexuality, and sexuality and pornography. The concluding chapter looks at the future of male sexuality. The book makes a valuable contribution to the burgeoning literature on masculinity studies.

    • Provides a comprehensive account of male sexuality, contained within a single volume
    • Applies a modified form of sexual script theory to all aspects of the subject
    • Written in a highly readable style with minimum use of technical language
    • Takes a strongly evidence-based approach

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Most writers on sexuality adopt one of three possible approaches: the biological, the psychological, and the social and historical. Rarely do they meet. The genius of Philip Graham's book is that it consciously and conscientiously uses all three approaches to illuminate in new ways the question of men and their sexualities. The result is an encyclopaedic overview of the debates, and a lively and stimulating contribution to our knowledge.' Jeffrey Weeks, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, South Bank University, London, and author of Sexuality, 4th edition

    'Philip Graham provides an interesting perspective of male sexuality. By using a 'sexual scripting' approach, he has been able to describe a wide range of sexual experiences in men and boys. This is backed up by a very substantial review of the relevant literature.' John Bancroft, The Kinsey Institute, Indiana University, Bloomington
