Gender and development tends to engage with sexuality only in relation to violence and ill-health. Important as this is, this negative emphasis dovetails with ideologies that associate women's sexualities with danger. On the other hand, the media, pharma industry and pornography celebrate the pleasures of sex in ways that can be just as oppressive. This pioneering collection challenges these strictures with examples of activism that use pleasure as an entry point for enhancing equality for all.
