Many books about sexual purity speak to men, but few-if any-speak to young women. Lindsey Nicole Isham boldly fills that gap with No Sex in the City, the brutally honest and often hilarious story of Lindsey's quest for sexual purity in the face of an impure culture, baffled peers, and sexual desire. Speaking from her own experience and from years as an abstinence advocate, Lindsey treats young women like the sexual beings they are, exploring their desires and curiosities about sex while relating candid experiences and truths about sexual purity. A great tool for Bible studies, youth groups, and abstinence organizations, No Sex in the City will help young, single, Christian women discuss their thoughts and keep their purity commitments.

English summary: A comprehensive overview of gender-historical trends in Expressionism is still a desideratum; the number and heterogeneity of such trends call for a diverse range of specialized studies. This volume makes an important contribution to cultural-historical research on the links between Expressionism and gender; it deals with literature (especially prose), film, plays by Ernst Toller, and paintings by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. The contributions explore topics such as fantasies of male birth, sexuality in contexts of money and traffic flows, aspects of maternal practice, crises of masculinities, gender symbolism, prostitute figures, and women as means for the increase of male social power. The findings suggest that future research should focus more strongly on three ways in which expressionists problematize gender positions: on symbolically meaningful transgressions of gender roles, on contradictory specifications of gender-coded identities, and on de-essentialized modes of sexual expression in the force fields of technology and social power. German and English text. German description: Eine umfassende Bestandsaufnahme genderhistorisch bedeutsamer Tendenzen des Expressionismus steht nach wie vor aus; angesichts der epochalen Vielfalt dieser Tendenzen lasst sich das Bild der expressionistischen Moderne nur mit Hilfe einer Vielzahl kleinerer Schritte in unterschiedliche Richtungen aktualisieren. Der Band leistet einen wichtigen Beitrag zu jener Bestandsaufnahme; neben der Literatur, insbesondere der Prosa, werden u.a. Strassenszenen von Ernst Ludwig Kirchner und Filme der Weimarer Republik berucksichtigt. Die Beitrage behandeln maskuline Geburtsphantasien, Sexualitat in Kontexten des Strassen- und Geldverkehrs, Aspekte mutterlichen Handelns, krisenhafte Maskulinitaten, Geschlechtersymbolik, Prostituiertenmotive sowie Frauenfiguren, die als Mittel zur Steigerung mannlicher Macht fungieren. Die Befunde legen nahe, drei Varianten der Problematisierung von Geschlechterpositionen im Expressionismus kunftig starker zu berucksichtigen: die symbolisch bedeutsame Uberschreitung von Spielraumen der Geschlechter, die widerspruchliche Codierung geschlechtermarkierten Sinns sowie die Darstellung von Substanzverlusten sexueller Beziehungen im Wirkungsfeld instrumentellen Handelns.
