Cite item


The article focuses on the complex and rather contradictory problem of sexual desire and its orientation. It also concerns contemporary institutional transformations and their effect upon our understanding of frames and criteria of sexual “normality”. Methodologically we base on two major approaches proposed by researchers that are essentialism and constructivism primarily distinguished in our study accordingly to their concept of desire and its substantiality.
