No Touching! The Corona-Crisis and Public Attitudes about Sex

Initiative: Corona Crisis and Beyond – Perspectives for Science, Scholarship and Society (beendet)
Bewilligung: 10.12.2020
Laufzeit: 1 Jahr 6 Monate


Has the corona-crisis served as a catalyst for a new stage in the history of sexual desires and moralities? The planned analyses of public discourses on sexuality during a time of social distancing will both deepen comprehension of the nature of human sexuality and help to make sense of how talk about sex functions as a vehicle for managing broader social conflicts and anxieties. The findings with regard to the dynamics between desire and restriction will be important for understanding other crises and the political decisions made in an effort to manage these, as well as provide knowledge, which is highly relevant for psychotherapeutic processes.
