Controlling access to sex is an important element of patriarchy. Somebody on Twitter just turned me on to “Gayle Rubin, Surveiller et jouir,” by Bernard Roland, which is supposed to examine this issue in some detail.

I’m vaguely familiar with Rubin as a feminist and anthropologist, but I don’t know Roland at all, and a quick search didn’t reveal anything in English translation.

Might be interesting, though!
