Sex and the sexual have for far too long been consigned to the dark corners by social scientists in general and tourism and leisure scholars in particular. Sex and the sexual during people's leisure and tourism experiences seeks to begin to rectify this situation by bringing the position and nature of sex and the sexual into the light of academic debate. As such, this book is designed to highlight cross-disciplinary emerging work on sex and the sexual in leisure and tourism and provide the readers with insights into this social realm. It encompasses a broad array of sex-related issues and tourism and leisure environments from across a variety of countries. The book should appeal to researchers and students across the humanities and social sciences both for the value of the research in its own right and the ability of it to be used as a lens through which to view the position of sex and the sexual as well as tourism and leisure in today's world. Overall, it is argued that sex and the sexual should play a part in the academic discourse, especially if we wish to describe what is actually happening out there as far as tourism and leisure are concerned.

Review:

"Sex and the Sexual during People's Leisure and Tourism Experiences, edited by Neil Carr and Poria Yaniv, is groundbreaking in its subject matter and scope. Leisure, tourism, sex and the sexual play a significant role in our daily lives and it is imperative to move the literature from the mundane in order to fully understand the place and nature of sex in leisure and tourism worldwide. Sex and the Sexual is a refreshingly liberal, risky and sometimes surprising read, with each chapter explicitly seeking to contribute to the breakdown of colonial norms and taboos surrounding sex and the sexual. The diversity of viewpoints, geographic locations and cultures presented in the book provide a foundation for the development of understandings of sex and the sexual in the leisure and tourism experience uninhibited by artificial disciplinary boundaries, colonial style moralizing and cultural blindness." - Kimberly J. Lyons, Annals of Leisure Research (2014)
