Sexual Rights: limits and possibilities to the use of the concept

The paper argues that since its origins, the very notion of sexual rights presents itself with contradictions and paradoxes that reflect unresolved conflicts between freedom and equality. Despite the specific contributions that each one of these principles brings to the debate around sexual rights, there are also tensions between them that lead to opposite solutions for concrete cases concerning sexual rights. Based on this premise, the paper aims to explore this point by calling attention to the absence of a legal framework to deal with complex cases involving sexual rights and proposing the adoption of an integrated approach between freedom and equality to cope with them.
