About the Author

Anastasia Powell is Lecturer in Sociology in the School of Social Sciences at La Trobe University, Victoria.


'... this is a terrific book: really well written and very engaging, full of useful, cogently expressed ideas about what is going on with young people and sex right now and how things might be improved. It has the capacity to make an important intervention and a strong impact, in part because it moves so well across fields and therefore has a wide readership, and in part because it addresses so many pressing current issues ... The strongest aspects of the book are its topic and the freshness, openness and interdisciplinarity in its approach, its fantastic readability, and its careful attention to the discursive regimes within which young people operate as sexual actors.' Anita Harris, University of Queensland
'This book is extremely relevant, up to date and presented in a well-written accessible style that is non-judgemental and seeks to explore all aspects of sexuality and sex behaviour using information gleaned from the words of the young people, Generation Y.' Rachel Gillibrand, Sex Education: Sexuality, Society and Learning
