"Shame has shifted from sexuality to self-realization," writes sociologist Per Solvang in Meningen with sex. Some artistic, popular cultural and scientific studies. The editors, gender and media scientist Wencke Mühleisen and visual artist Christel Sverre, in this Nordic anthology take on the stage of sexualization and look at the sexuality's connections to art and research. The theme is illuminated from many points of view: gender, ethnicity, class, aesthetics and politics. With very different contributors and different genres, the focus is on important societal and cultural issues related to body, gender and sexuality. Why, for example, is female masturbation a feminist form of liberation, while male masturbation is often associated with loneliness and sexual desperation?

The seminar comments and discusses the contributions. Sociologist Jan Wickman, Åbo Akademi University and Anne Karin Jortveit, visual artist and writer, are among the main contributors.
