Social construction of sexuality

Kinsman argues that “the formation of…our capacities for eroticism and sexual practices are made as a very embodied social and historical practice. They are social and relational and not simply individual or physiological.” (265) Drawing on all of the academic readings in the “Key Concepts” weeks (Weeks 2&3), explain the significance of the social construction of sexuality. You may want to use examples from the readings. Hint: both Kinsman and Fausto-Sterling discuss the importance of the “material.” Your essay should include: • An introduction with a thesis statement • A 1-2 paragraph (1 page) definition of social constructionism • A discussion of importance of a social constructionist approach to sexuality • A conclusion xdsv
