Abstract

In this Foreword, I lay out the case for intimate privacy—what it is, why it is in jeopardy, and how we can fight to get it back, if we try. Individuals want, expect, and deserve privacy in their bodies, health, sexual activities, and love lives, yet too often they do not enjoy it. At stake is human flourishing. Everyone needs intimate privacy to develop authentic identities, enjoy human dignity, and fall in love. Equality is illusory without intimate privacy. We need law, industry, and personal education and persuasion to protect intimate privacy. It is ours and we need to take it back.
