This chapter begins with discussions of Linda Singer's observations regarding the nature of power, control and regulation in relation to sexuality; and Joshua Gamson's claims about the contemporary meaning of the condom, which are later called into question by Scott Bravmann. It then considers Simon Watney's analysis of the British media and Leo Bersani's account of the US press in the 1980s, which critically address the construction of sexuality in AIDS representations. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   condom, sexuality, Linda Singer, Joshua Gamson, Scott Bravmann, Simon Watney, Leo Bersani, AIDS
