Rachel Spronk has written a well composed, highly interesting and maybe even path-breaking book...It is innovative in its focus on sexuality as bodily experience and implications for 'the gendered sense of self' of these young men and women [and] is also innovative in terms of methodology; first and foremost by its focus on a group of young professional men and women. * Signe Arnfred, Roskilde University Spronk's theoretical take on this theme is seminal and challenging. She convincingly shows that a constructivist approach - emphasizing the social and historical construction of people's practices and views on sex and sexuality - is highly relevant to understanding how people navigate their lives. But she emphasizes also its limitations because her informants' insistence that the natural, bodily power of sexual feelings has to be brought in as well. * Peter Geschiere, University of Amsterdam Among both male and female young urban professionals in Nairobi, sexuality is a key to achieving a 'modern' identity.
