In short, writing this book has taught me that there is much concerning traditional analytic philosophizing about sex that needs reevaluation and rejuvenation. I believe that contemporary feminist philosophical investigation can bring a unique and valuable perspective to discussions of sex and sexuality. My own recommendations for advancing the dialogue on women's sexuality are admittedly not free of bias toward my own race, class, sexual preference, age, marital status, physical ability, or gender.
Feminists who advocate women's experimentation with such practices believe that a heterosexual and male-dominated society has a vested interest in confining women to sexual attitudes and practices that maintain the status quo of female heterosexual subordination. Therefore, one way to undermine such oppressive politics is to subvert precisely those sexual practices that reinforce male-identified sexual norms. Indeed, many feminists who adopt this perspective believe that the oppression of sexual diversity, not the oppression of women per se, should be feminism's primary enemy since both men's and women's challenges to the sexual status quo help subvert the sexual dominance of women circumscribed by heterosexual monogamy.
Third, such a study will also ask us to pay careful attention to the unique as well as the unifying details of the lives of the individual women whose erotic preferences are under investigation. From this perspective, women are understood both in terms of their sexual specialness and in the ways they may share sexual anxieties, needs, or interests with other women. And finally, because we are adopting the perspective that the philosophy of sex is socially constructed, any philosophizing about the nature and value of women's sexuality will be informed by a dialectic between the philosopher and her subject, which will affect the social locations of each.
