Title Discourses on sexual pleasure after genital modifications: the fallacy of genital determinism (a response to J. Steven Svoboda)
Author(s) Johnsdotter, Sara
Date 2013
English abstract
In this paper I discuss discourses about sexual pleasure after genital modifications, and how medical statements about effects on sexual pleasure are associated with politics, especially regarding male and female circumcision. Further, I argue that current discussions on sexual effects of genital modifications are reductionist due to widespread assumptions about the role of genitalia in sexuality – what might be characterised as ‘genital determinism’.
