From the Publisher:

A fascinating, hard look at the history of American attitudes toward sex. "A grown-up book about a subject about which we can be astonishingly childish."--Washington Post Book World

From Library Journal:

An irony of historical writing is that sexualityone of the most important factors in everyone's livesis perhaps the least discussed. Gender relations, the purpose of sexual intercourse, and the meaning of marriage shape the daily lives of most adults, yet historians often ignore such matters. Now this oversight is rectified by an excellent survey of sexuality in America from colonial days to the 1980s. The commercialization of sex, its use as a means of social control, and the search for its place in our lives are presented here clearly and readably. Highly recommended for most academic and public libraries. Pat Ensor, Indiana State Univ. Lib., Terre Haute
