Janet E. Halley, The Sexual Economist and Legal Regulation of the Sexual Orientations, in Sex, Preference, and Family: Essays on Law and Nature 192 (David M. Estlund & Martha C. Nussbaum eds., 1997).

Abstract: Sex, Preference, and Family brings together seventeen eminent philosophers and legal scholars who offer illuminating and often provocative commentary on sexuality (including sexual behavior, sexual orientation, and the role of pornography in shaping sexuality), on the family (including both same-sex and single-parent families), and on the proper role of law in these areas. The essayists are all fiercely independent thinkers and offer intriguing and controversial proposals.
