“Sex Culture” describes the intersection of two fairly loaded words where sex is understood not as simply a physical act but as a set of institutions and practices. Sex culture includes the ways in which people seek out sexual encounters with others and what kinds of things people do when they have sex. It also includes the whole realm of sex work, that “world’s oldest profession” for all forms of sexuality.
