This introductory chapter offers a comprehensive introduction to Deleuze's writings on sexuality. At the same time it provides an overview of where and how the notion of sexuality is addressed in Deleuze's writing, both alone and with Guattari. In this sense, the introduction serves as a guide, not only to the specific articles in the present volume but also to those readers interested in what Deleuze has to say on the topic more generally. Furthermore, the chapter begins to problematise aspects of Deleuze's writings on sexuality by asking specific questions to which the book as a whole attempts to respond.
