No culture is ever completely successful or satisfied with its synthesis of romantic love, companionship, and sexual desire. Whether the setting is a busy metropolis or a quiet farming village, a tension always exists between a community's sexual habits and customs and what it believes to be the proper context for love. Even in Western societies, we prefer sexual passion to romance and companionship, and no study of any culture has shown that individuals regard passion and affection equally. The pursuit of love and sex has generated an infinite number of ambiguities and contradictions, yet every community hopes to find a resolution to this conflict either by joining, dividing, or stressing one act over the other. In this follow-up to Romantic Passion: A Universal Experience?, William R. Jankowiak examines how different cultures rationalize the expression of passionate and comfort love and physical sex. He begins by mapping out the intricacies of the love/sex conundrum and the psychological dilemma of reconciling these competing forces. He then follows with essays on sex, love, and intimacy among Central African foragers and farmers; the love dyad in Lithuania; intimacy among the Lahu of Southwestern China; the interplay of love, sex, and marriage in the High Himalayas; verbalized experiences of love and sexuality in Indonesia; love work as it relates to sex work among prostitutes; intimacies and estrangements in the marital and extramarital relationships of Huli men; infidelity and masculinity in Southwestern Nigeria; and the ritual of sex and the rejuvenation of the love bond among married couples in the United States.

Elizabeth Ferry explores how members of the Santa Fe Cooperative, a silver mine in Mexico, give meaning to their labor in an era of rampant globalization. She analyzes the cooperative's practices and the importance of patrimonio (patrimony) in their understanding of work, tradition, and community. More specifically, she argues that patrimonio, a belief that certain resources are inalienable possessions of a local collective passed down to subsequent generations, has shaped and sustained the cooperative's sense of identity.

Seit der »sexuellen Revolution« der siebziger Jahre ist das Thema Sexualität in aller Munde. Der Feminismus und das Coming-Out der Homosexuellen haben die tradierten Geschlechterrollen ebenso in Frage gestellt wie die sexuelle Moral. Trotzdem gelten Sex, Liebe und Erotik immer noch als ausschließlich private Bereiche. Der Wandel der Intimität, so zeigt Giddens, betrifft aber ebenso wie unsere ganz persönlichen Beziehungskrisen die Demokratie unserer modernen Gesellschaften. Dieser Wandel geht nicht etwa, wie Konservative behaupten, in die Richtung immer größerer Permissivität und ungehemmten Sex mit möglichst vielen Partnern. Vielmehr entwickeln sich unsere Liebesbeziehungen, Freundschaften und Eltern-Kind-Beziehungen hin zu mehr Partnerschaft und Gegenseitigkeit. »Demokratie«, dafür plädiert Giddens’ umfassende Analyse, ist daher nicht nur eine politische Forderung, sondern ein Schlüsselbegriff für die neue Partnerschaftlichkeit im privaten Leben.
