From Library Journal:

$24.95. soc sci Critical of those who attempt to deal with isolated sexual problems, Schur looks at sex (homosexual and heterosexual) in contemporary America as a systemthe diverse yet linked parts of which can be understood only as general socio-cultural forces. From a combination of perspectives, Schur (sociology, New York University) analyzes depersonalized, commoditized, and coercive sexuality. He calls for a profound change in women's and men's sexual experience through nonsexist socialization from early childhood and through de-emphasizing sexual objectification in advertising. His arguments, though provocative, are undermined by a pedagogical style and organization.James E. Van Buskirk, Academy of Art Coll. Lib., San Francisco

Review:

"[Schur] calls for a profound change in women's and men's sexual experience through nonsexist socialization...and through deemphasizing sexual objectification in advertising." --Library Journal "A theoretically and rhetorically powerful book... Compelling reading." --Tikkun
