RAW addresses the question of sex without condoms, or barebacking, in the age of PrEP, a drug that virtually eliminates the transmission of HIV. Writing out of the history of the AIDS crisis, the authors in RAW expand the study of barebacking into new areas, such as its appearance within lesbian, heterosexual, and BDSM communities and its implications for teaching critical sexology.
Marking the tenth anniversary of Tim Dean's Unlimited Intimacy, Raw returns to the question of sex without condoms, or barebacking, a timely topic in the age of PrEP, a drug that virtually eliminates the transmission of HIV. "Essential reading for anyone interested in the politics of sex, sexuality and sexual representation in the 21st century." -John Mercer, author of Gay Pornography "Finally, queer theory returns to a topic it has had surprisingly little to say about: sex! Underpinning these essays is a thrilling wager: that desire demands discourse but resists rationalization." -Damon R. Young, author of Making Sex Public and Other Cinematic Fantasies "A major contribution to research. It opens up the discourse on barebacking to a varity of perspectives and theoretical arguments, and makes clear that the topic remains relevant." -John Paul Ricco, author of The Decision Between Us "Raw provides an account of the state of queer-theoretical scholarship on bareback today, and makes a pluralising and distinctive contribution to that body of work, significantly broadening this field of scholarship." -Oliver Davis, editor of Bareback Sex and Queer Theory across Three National Contexts (France, UK, US) Contributors: Jonathan A.

Conversations about ethics and politics are of paramount importance to the present conjuncture. In this work, Ricky Varghese attempts a close reading of certain key literary texts by Franco- Czech novelist Milan Kundera wherein one might see the ways in which the novelist has attempted a discussion about how the subjects of self and other are founded on the possibility of/for ethics within an intimate cosmopolitical space. The work gestures toward a move from and beyond universal conversations about cosmopolitanism to a more nuanced reading of the cosmopolitical space as one being founded on ethics and intimate encounters between self and other. Bringing together psychoanalytic theory as it pertains to embodiment, literary criticism in his readings of Kundera's texts, and the ethical philosophy of Jacques Derrida and Emmanuel Levinas, Ricky Varghese attempts to think about cosmopolitanism differently, as the locus point where intimacy, ethics, and justice can be initiated into the conversation between self and other, as subjects that are mutually constituted.
