Haggerty argues that the concepts of love and emotional intimacy offer a more useful perspective for understanding male-male relations of the time.Haggerty considers male identities of many kinds: heroic friends, as found in seventeenth-century French romance and Restoration tragedy, and personal friends, as in the erotic relationships of Gray, Walpole, and West- fops and beaus, as depicted in Restoration and early eighteenth-century comedy and various satirical portraits- effeminate sodomites and mollies depicted in literature and sodomy trial accounts throughout the period- men of feeling and other figures in whom sensibility and sexuality are vividly interconnected.

He also discusses libertines and sexual aggressors, especially as depicted in the pages of Gothic fiction.
