However, the field needs a volume that does not restrict its purview to a single variant of sexuality, such as “homosexuality” or “marriage,” since the whole question of modern categories and their relevance to the ancient world is itself deeply fraught and contentious. The various practices and discursive contexts of sexuality must be viewed systematically and holistically. Moreover, it is this volume's aim not to treat Greece and Rome separately, but with sensitivity to both the continuities and differences between the two classical civilizations.

For the first decade of widespread scholarly attention to ancient sexuality, then, the course of development is comparatively linear. Prompted by second-wave feminism, some classicists entering the field during the 1970s began to investigate conditions of life for ancient women, including restrictions upon their own control of their bodies and the notion of woman's nature that authorized such curbs. Others began to trace relationships among sex, language, and power, particularly when manifested in offensive or threatening speech.
