This book of critical rural geography breaks new ground by drawing attention to sex and sexualities outside the metropolis. It explores sexualities and sexual experiences in a variety of rural and marginal spaces with international contributions from a wide range of disciplines. These include: literary and cultural studies, lesbian and gay studies, geography, history and law. Among the topics uncovered are:

* a lesbian in rural England

* sexual life in rural Wales

* sexuality in rural South Africa

* scandal in the American South: sex, race and politics

* nature and homosexuality in literature

* Derry/Londonderry as a sexual space

* how 'country folk' are sexualised in popular culture.
