It provides original research and innovative analysis of Latin American sexual culture and the gendering of Latino sexualities and, based on the views of lower-class Hondurans, challenges the heralding of globalization as liberation. The collaboration between a Latin American anthropologist and an American comparativist sociologist is particularly novel and noteworthy for including the perspectives on homosexuality of the young men (hombres) who penetrate those classified as “homosexuals” and makes important contributions to Latin American studies, gender studies, cultural studies, and to understanding sexual cultures.
