In the late 1960s, John Gagnon and William Simon, developed the concept of sexual scripts as part of a larger project of treating sexuality like any other social phenomenon. This title includes reflections on the careers of Gagnon and Simon, and examines the construction of both sexual identity and sexual behaviors in a variety of settings.
