      • Images of Sex and Spirit

        The intersection of Sex and Spirit is a place of deep learning and great power. It really is an anomaly in human history that we do not see and celebrate this intersection. The collection of images here invites us to explore what sex might be, if we didn’t confine it to the dissatisfying realms of romance and appetite. In other cultures sexual energy was and is honored as a dynamic catalyst for transformation. Erotic energy can be used for celebration and healing, planting and hunting. Sex can be seen an aspect of the sacred, a way to dance in union with all that is. Some of the oldest art found in the world venerates the genitals and erotic practice.

              The 2011 Stirling Lecture, entitled 'Problems with borders: changing idioms of freedom and bondage in UK sex work', was presented by Professor Sophie Day from Goldsmiths, University of London. The deregulation of labour has led to changes in the control of borders and bodies. Debates about trafficking since the 1990s illuminate how movement is gendered in ways that evoke earlier panics about white slavery. Activists find that sex work is considered a less legitimate occupation today than it was in the 1980s and early 1990s and they confront representations of sex workers as victims, sold and bought across national borders and reduced to the status of things. I trace recent shifts in the language of consent and compulsion alongside historical parallels in order to demonstrate how gendered idioms express a general ambivalence about labour. The Stirling Lecture is held annually in honour of Professor Paul Stirling, founding Professor of the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology at the University of Kent. He is best known as the author of the classic ethnography, 'Turkish Village'.
