On the Politics of Writing Sex: Response to Commentaries on Disorienting Sexuality Related Papers

Ronnie C. Lesser, Ph.D.

I want to thank the editors of Gender and Psychoanalysis for featuring our book, and Jack Drescher, Donald Moss, Joanna Ryan, and Adria Schwartz for their rich, provocative commentaries. The papers both comment on and extend the work that we began in Disorienting Sexuality: an articulation and critique of homophobia in psychoanalytic theory and practice, and an attempt to rewrite the psychoanalytic theory of sexuality in a new image. As Joanna Ryan points out, the complicated question that arises is: in what new image or new images? The image the editors proposed in the book was largely one that came from a Butlerian/Foucauldian/social-constructivist perspective. Ryan is right to wish for more diversity.
