CORDOVA PLAZA, Rosío. Theoretico-Methodological Reflections on the Study of Sexuality. Rev. Mex. Sociol [online]. 2003, vol.65, n.2, pp.339-360. ISSN 2594-0651.

This article explores two key aspects in the study of sexuality: a) reflecting on the theoretical nature of the concept and b) proposing that sexuality -as a point of confluence between social standards and individuals' ethical action- can be regarded as an essential methodological tool for the analysis of oscillations in the balance of power between the genders.

Keywords : sexuality; gender; power.
