Lynne Huffer's formidable inquiry redresses the rift among feminist and queer conception, traversing the gap of a brand new, post-moral sexual ethics that incorporates excitement, wish, connection, and betrayal. She starts by means of balancing queer theorists' politics of sexual freedoms with a moralizing feminist politics that perspectives sexuality as damage. Drawing at the most sensible insights from either traditions, she builds an ethics situated on eros, following Michel Foucault's ethics as a tradition of freedom and Luce Irigaray's lyrical articulation of an ethics of sexual difference.
Through this theoretical lens, Huffer examines daily reports of moral connection and failure attached to intercourse, together with queer sexual practices, sodomy legislation, interracial love, pornography, and work-life stability. Her procedure complicates sexual identities whereas demanding the epistemological foundations of subjectivity. She rethinks ethics "beyond strong and evil" with no underestimating, as a few queer theorists have performed, the patience of what Foucault calls the "catastrophe" of morality. Elaborating a thinking-feeling ethics of the opposite, Huffer encourages modern intellectuals to reshape sexual morality from inside, defining a moral area that's either poetically suggestive and politically appropriate, either conceptually bold and level-headed in universal sexual experience.
