Le Sexe, d'hier à aujourd'hui

Un landscape de l. a. sexualité à travers les âges.
La pulsion sexuelle obéit à bien d’autres appels qu’à celui de l. a. survie de l’espèce, et témoigne, par les actes qu’elle induit, d’une grande diversité d’objets, de formes et de sens. Quelques repères dans l’histoire des moeurs humaines, allant de l’Antiquité à nos jours, permettent de le constater : en dépit de l’universalité des pratiques, ni leur forme, ni leur signification, ni les limites qu’on leur donne ne sont restées les mêmes, à travers l’histoire et les cultures, comme le montre los angeles première partie de cet ouvrage. Aujourd’hui, beaucoup de pratiques sexuelles qui, avant les années 1970, restaient problématiques voire réprouvées, sont ouvertement revendiquées et font l’objet de nombreuses études. On s’interroge sur l. a. libido du mâle nouveau et sur les formes de l. a. sexualité féminine. On scrute les pratiques des youngsters comme celles des personnes âgées. On inventorie les comportements pornomaniaques, les paraphilies… Ces nouveaux comportements sont tantôt qualifiés comme les éléments nécessaires d’une libéralisation des moeurs, tantôt, au contraire, comme un threat menaçant l’intégrité de chacun, et même de l. a. société. Cet ouvrage croise les regards de spécialistes de toutes disciplines – historiens, sociologues, sexologues, psychologues… – pour former un landscape de l. a. sexualité à travers les âges.
