Negotiating anal intercourse in interracial gay relationships in Hong Kong

Negotiating anal intercourse in interracial gay relationships in Hong Kong

(p.228) (p.229) Chapter 11 Negotiating anal intercourse in interracial gay relationships in Hong Kong
Sex and Desire in Hong Kong
Hong Kong University Press

This article is about the experience of Chinese gay men in colonial Hong Kong, their relationship with Western partners and their sexual practices. The body of the colonized is a critical space where resistance against the subjection by the colonial intrusion is put up. As their agency and instruments of desire are actively claiming personal and interpersonal space, the forces of colonial domination are met with subversive resistance. It is in the paradoxical site of inter-racial gay anal intercourse that the equation between the colonizer and the powerful is simultaneously realized and questioned, and that both the enemy and the lover present themselves to a desire that is always characterized by ambivalence.
