Can horses consent?
This chapter discusses the resurgence of older laws on bestiality under the prevention of “sex abuse”, the evacuation of consent when animals are considered property, and the debate around considering every sexual act with animals a priori as abuse. The author draws on philosophers Michel Foucault and Marcela Iacub to explore the state management of sexuality around the paradigm of consent, and the legal void that it produces for sexual subjects, humans or otherwise, who are defined incapable of giving consent
