Annie Potts has opened up new ways of understanding the open potential of all forms of sexuality - an exciting and crucial project for feminists of the future. - Elizabeth Grosz, Rutgers University

The Science/Fiction of Sex is original, witty, extremely clever ... It has some remarkable chapters, such as the one on masculinity, which I would rate among the best I've ever read. The analysis of the alternative erotic-theoretical systems proposed by Irigaray and Deleuze are first-class pieces of writing ... daring and intelligent. - Rosi Braidotti, Netherlands Research School of Women's Studies, Utrecht University

Annie Potts teaches critical sexuality studies in the Department of Gender Studies at the University of Canterbury, NZ. She also leads a national study, funded by the NZ Health Research Council on the social impact of sexuopharmaceuticals.
