Summary/Abstract: The stereotypical thinking about the ethnic others starts from us, it defines them and us and, what is more important – it sustains our notions about our own spaces and values. In this way ethnic stereotypes are closely connected with the identity of the communities. Sexual ethnostereotypes function in the field of giving of meaning to the (nationnal or ethnic) community’s everyday life. However, although in the texts, reflecting the stereotypical image of the sexual us or them, the ethnocentrism is really introvert, the ethnic sexual stereotypes do not have any functional connection with the gender in contradistinction from the other sexual stereotypes which are based on the opposition between male and female.
