Marking the tenth anniversary of Tim Dean’s seminal work, Raw returns to the question of sex without condoms, or barebacking, a timely topic in the age of PrEP, a drug that virtually eliminates the transmission of HIV. The authors in Raw push Dean’s conclusions and show the urgent need to consider condomless sex, as it is still illegal for HIV-positive people in many jurisdictions.  “Significantly broadens the field of scholarship on bareback, notably by including pieces on bareback in heterosexual pornography, by making connections with lesbian and BDSM identities and practices, and by discussing the experience of Black bareback bottoms and treating sex education considerations.” —Oliver Davis, author of Jacques Rancière Contributors: Jonathan A.
