Sex in transition: anti-sexuality and the church in post-communist Poland

Author

Abstract
This paper offers a critical evaluation of several aspects (of legal and social kind) of sexuality in postcommunist Poland. Special emphasis will be put on the role of the church in the spread of antisexual opinions and attitudes in Poland and the threats and challenges this poses to a striving for sexual literacy and positive liberty. Contemporary attempts, like those of theologian and priest Ksawery Knotz, to refute these antisexual attitudes, will be dismissed as neither renewing nor really liberalising.
