Professor Fisher is currently working on two different book-length projects: the first is a book about sexual practices in early modern English culture (with chapters on kissing, chinchucking, intercrural sex, cunnilingus, the use of dildos, and flogging), and the second is a book about "bisexuality" and notions of sexual orientation.
