The Transformation of Intimacy Summary


The Transformation of Intimacy: Love, Sexuality and Eroticism in Modern Societies by Anthony Giddens

The sexual revolution - an evocative term, but what meaning can be given to it today? How did "sexuality" come into being and what connections does it have with the changes that have affected personal life on a more general plane? In answering these questions, Giddens disputes many of the dominant interpretations of the role of sexuality in modern culture. The emergence of what the author calls plastic sexuality - sexuality freed from its intrinsic relation to reproduction - is analyzed in terms of the long-term development of the modern social order and social influences for the last few decades. Giddens further argues that the transformation of intimacy, in which women have played the major part, holds out the possibility of a radical democratization of the personal sphere.
