    Gender Games - From Spain, Japan, and the Downtown Hinterlands

    The way some people talk about flamenco, you'd think it was all about sex; the dancers seem to size one another up for conquest, to taunt the musicians and audience with their prowess. The typical flamenco duet is a hot item, rendered hotter by the f...
