Table of Contents

      a long, yet incomplete, list of folk who have influenced, inspired, and supported me and enabled this piece of work to be born

      opening the thesis by giving a bit of background on the idea of sexual orientation and why I wanted to think about it more
      big questions in sexual politics including feminist debates about SM, queer politics, and citizenship
      anarchism, as theory in practice, offers a good tradition for rethinking sexual politics
      what/how/why I did what I did, what I think it means and how it felt
      two stories that particularly inspired my analysis
      how people are controlled, contained and policed through shame and violence
      how policing can be resisted - stories of sex, labels, negotiating boundaries and more
      ideas about what makes resistance feel possible
      five pages long, doesn't use much jargon, and explains the key ideas of the thesis. it's quite punchy, too
