Loose Women, Lecherous Men: A Feminist Philosophy of Sex

Synopsis

Linda LeMoncheck introduces a new way of thinking and talking about women's sexual pleasures, preferences, and desires. Using the tools of contemporary analytic philosophy, she discusses methods for mediating the tensions among apparently irreconcilable feminist perspectives on women's sexuality and shows how a feminist epistemology and ethic can advance the dialogue in women's sexuality across a broad political spectrum. Such a dialogue encourages both women and men to take up a feminist perspective in exploring the meaning and value of sexuality in their lives.
