This book explores changes in the representations and depictions of masculinity and masculine sexualities in contemporary France. It looks at the manifestation of post-modern masculinity and male sexuality in the French context by analysing the works of Marc-Édouard Nabe, Michel Houellebecq, Maurice Dantec, and Fabrice Neaud. In addition, the book considers Nicolas Jones-Gorlin's novel, Rose Bonbon, which deals with the forbidden sexuality of pedophilia, as well as works by Guillaume Dustan and Erik Rémès to see how notions of HIV infection and the practices associated with the choices of bareback or unsafe sex contribute to subject-formation in some contemporary queer literature.

Keywords:   France, masculinity, Marc-Édouard Nabe, Michel Houellebecq, Maurice Dantec, Fabrice Neaud, HIV infection, male sexuality, Nicolas Jones-Gorlin, unsafe sex
