This chapter assesses some key challenges that have recently emerged in sex research. It argues that in the wake of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and with the consolidation of agenda linked to the promotion of sexual health and reproductive rights, sexuality has come to constitute a broad and contested field of play. This chapter also suggests that hermeneutic and epistemological concerns are increasingly becoming ethical and political questions.

Keywords: key challenges; sex research; HIV/AIDS pandemic; sexual health; reproductive rights; sexuality
