About the book: Sexualities: Personal Lives and Social Policy explores the choices that we make about our sexuality and how these can transform our personal lives. It analyses how social policy informs and responds to such choices through an examination of normative assumptions about sexuality and its role in forming, regulating and constituting welfare subjects, discourses, theories, provisions and practices. It is one in an innovative series - Personal Lives and Social Policy - published by The Open University and The Policy Press.
