Tamsin Wilton

Academic and health studies writer


Tamsin Wilton has been a Reader in the Sociology of Sex and Sexualities at the School of Health Sciences, University of the West of England, Bristol.

Tamsin Wilton is unusual in that she used to be straight. Tamsin says her friends - straight and lesbian - find it hard to believe that she once enjoyed sex with men and considered herself heterosexual.

She was guest co-editor with Clare Farquhar of the "May 2000 Sexualities journal" special issue which included her article Out/Performing Our Selves: Sex, Gender and Cartesian Dualism. She was the UK's first Professor of Human Sexuality. Tamsin died suddenly, of an aneurism.


Her work include:

  • Lesbian Studies: Setting an Agenda (1995)
  • Immortal, Invisible: Lesbians and the Moving Image (1995)
  • Good For You: A Handbook to Lesbian Health and Wellbeing (1997)
  • Sexualities in Health and Social Care (2000)
