Abstract
In his Embattled Eros (1992) Steven Seidman suggests that the concept of ‘sexual responsibility’ has ‘strategic value’ for formulating a sexual ethics “that preserves what Gayle Rubin calls ‘benign sexual variation,’ yet articulates norms that allow us to make the kind of moral judgements that are routinely made in everyday life.” (199) Recently, the concept of ‘sexual citizenship’ has been proffered as a cornerstone for such a sexual ethics of ‘responsabilisation.’ In this paper I explore and evaluate the emancipatory ethical potential of this emerging ‘ethics of sexual citizenship.’ I argue that an activist interpretation of sexual citizenship has a greater potential for remedying the exclusionary mechanism that are inherent in the very concept of citizenship.
