Communicative Sexualities: A Communicology of Sexual Experience, by Jacqueline M. Martinez, provides an argument for and illustration of how to pursue the direct study of students' lived-experiences of sexuality in a classroom or academic setting. It illustrates how communicology, and its methodological practice of semiotic phenomenology, allows for a sustained and rigorous study of the meaningfulness of sexual experience as it manifests in the immediate, concrete, and embodied realities in the lives of those taking up such a study. Examples from actual classroom experience allows for a detailed consideration of the applied research methodology, as well as the ethical issues involved in making students' experience of sexuality the main subject of the course.
Martinez's text features detailed discussions of how to study the lived-experience of sexuality as the subject matter of research. It considers the steps necessary in suspending presuppositions regarding sexuality and gender, particularly those associated with the heterosexual-homosexual binary. Sexuality is understood as inherently good, yet also capable of becoming a means of perpetuating human isolation and degradation as much as an experience of tremendously shared human intimacy and mutual recognition.
As an introductory text, Jacqueline M. Martinez's Communicative Sexualities: A Communicology of Sexual Experience is an excellent primer for the advanced study of communicology and semiotic phenomenology as related to the lived-experiences of sexuality and gender.

Jacqueline M. Martinez is associate professor of communicology at Arizona State University, Phoenix.Review:
Theoretically sophisticated and grounded in the lived realities of sexual experience, Communicative Sexualities provides readers with important tools to examine and understand their own embodied sexualities within larger social, cultural, and political contexts. The volume is a significant contribution to the study of sexualities in the communication discipline. (Gust A. Yep, San Francisco State University)
It is rare to come across a genuinely daring book. Communicative Sexualities is just that. Martinez, one of the most creative theorists of communication, addresses problems across the communicative life of sexuality, its practices and orientation of the sexual self, with breathtaking honesty, insight, and care. Her treatment, intrepid and erudite, makes bare what many of us paradoxically see yet fail to see. Born out of pedagogical communication, this book is a major contribution to communicology, phenomenology, queer theory, and the continued quest for human understanding―a must read for anyone interested in these areas of study. (Lewis R. Gordon, Professor of Philosophy and Africana Studies, University of Connecticut)
It is exciting to see this valuable new textbook on sexuality and communication from Jacqueline Martinez. The central role of communication in the interrelationships of the personal and cultural is highlighted throughout and the concluding chapter guides the reader to a deeper recognition of the individual, interpersonal, and societal implications of ethical communication of and in sexual experience vs. the violence of communication that is unethical. It is a message we should not ignore. (Karen E. Lovaas, San Francisco State University)
