Geographical work on the study of sexuality has a long and, at times, complicated relationship to the study of health. Sometimes tangentially and at other times directly, studies with a focus on sexuality within geography have engaged with a variety of health concerns including: mental health (Lewis, 2009); disability (Butler, 1999; Sothern, 2007a; Del Casino, 2007a); migration and its relationships to masculinity and heterosexuality (Elder, 2003; Hunter, 2010a, 2010b); public-health practices and policy (Craddock, 2000; Kesby and Sothern, 2014; MacDonnell and Andrews, 2006), sex work, both contemporary (Hubbard and Prior, 2013; Katsulis, 2009) and in historical settings (Legg, 2014; Howell, 2009); and drug use (Del Casino, 2007b, 2012).
