Great text on the historical relationship between capitalism and the formation and emergence of sexual identities. Although it is a scholarly piece of work, it often felt somewhat dense and unclear in terms of the prose. Overall, a wonderful feminist Marxian analysis of sexuality and why political economy is important to the future of cultural studies in relation to race, gender, and sexuality.
