This month we are covering the topic of sex as it relates to goth culture, scene and club culture, and its link to sexual expectations of the greater mainstream culture. Issues such as goth club environments, bisexuality, polyamory, and romance will be explored in the context of personal meaning, socialization, and the sociological perspective. My hope is that we can come away with a better understanding of ourselves as sexual creatures, the goth subcultures approach to the issue of sex and sexuality, and understand how outside influences can exert unforeseen influence on our sexual identities.
