Promotional Information

"Intimate Economies offers a rich analysis of the embodied experiences of affective, emotional and reproductive labor. Insightful and provocative, this compelling collection shuns polarized thinking and takes an unflinching look at the marketization of bodies and relationships in an unequal world. An important book for a much-needed debate about the politics, economics and complexities of intimacy today." (Emma Dowling, Senior Lecturer in Sociology, Middlesex University, London) "Intimate Economies radically re-orients the analysis of commercial intimacy by re-focusing attention on the experiences of those engaged in a variety of markets in intimate practices and forms of embodied trade. Bringing together meticulously researched, empirically grounded and theoretically innovative analyses of the complex affective modalities inherent in retail, service and sex work, as well as surrogacy, this is a bold, ground-breaking, and timely collection." (Silvia Posocco, Lecturer in Psychosocial Studies, Birkbeck, University of London)
