Summary: Finalist for 2010 LGBT Anthology Award from the Lambda Literary Awards. Unwed teen mothers, abortion, masturbation, pornography, gay marriage, sex trafficking, homosexuality, and HIV are just a few in a long line of issues that have erupted into panics. These sexual panics spark moral crusades and campaigns, defining and shaping how we think about sexual and reproductive rights. The essays in Moral Panics, Sex Panics focus on case studies ranging from sex education to AIDS to race and the ""down low,"" to illustrate how sexuality is at the heart of many political controversies.
