Clinical Sexology in contemporary Brazil: the professional dispute among divergent medical views on gender and sexuality

We intend to show how the original profession of the sexologist is related not only to the way sexuality and gender are conceived, but also to the way sexology itself is defined and practiced. We believe that the divergences and tensions between professional views and practices point to the complexity of contemporary medicalization of sexuality and gender.
