Through this theoretical lens, Huffer examines daily stories of moral connection and failure attached to intercourse, together with queer sexual practices, sodomy legislation, interracial love, pornography, and work-life stability. Her process complicates sexual identities whereas hard the epistemological foundations of subjectivity. She rethinks ethics "beyond strong and evil" with out underestimating, as a few queer theorists have performed, the patience of what Foucault calls the "catastrophe" of morality. Elaborating a thinking-feeling ethics of the opposite, Huffer encourages modern intellectuals to reshape sexual morality from inside of, defining a moral house that's either poetically suggestive and politically proper, either conceptually bold and down to earth in universal sexual experience.
