About the Book

Marking the tenth anniversary of Tim Dean’s Unlimited Intimacy, "Raw" returns to the question of barebacking, a timely topic in the age of PrEP, a drug that virtually eliminates the transmission of HIV. The authors in Raw push Dean’s conclusions and explore questions related to sex and sexual practices, shedding light on some of the most prescient questions regarding sexuality in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.
