Implicit conceptions of women's sexuality rest on long historical traditions, and their formation show both stability and change. Women have gained a number of citizen rights in society, but where women's rights to bodily integrity are concerned these have been harder to attain. For more than a hundred years feminists have questioned a constitutive norm which states that men's sexuality is women's responsibility, and demanded changed state laws on prostitution and sexual violence. Sweden has a radical law which criminalizes the purchase of sexual services. Still, however, men's sexuality is by some seen as women's responsibility.
