This chapter presents a summary of the preceding discussions. This book began with the speculative question of how to address the history of the condom. How to make sense of safer-sex discourse? In addressing this question it has been argued that what is at stake is not whether it makes sense to refer to the condom in the context of AIDS as making visible or indeed invisible certain sexualities. Rather, the book has shown how the condom concerns the production and regulation of heterosexuality.

Keywords:   safer sex, condom, AIDS, heterosexuality
