A radical new view of sexuality. The book explores the nooks and crannies of the modern erotic mind and discovers that below our seeming enthusiasm for sex lurks a bundle of fears. This erotic malaise powerfully affects our lives. It stunts sexual passion, inhibits frank and honest talk about sex, and generates shame about sexual organs. It even influences our political orientation. This sex-negativity is the product of a fascinating but toxic social system that the book is the first to identify. Understanding this system can powerfully enhance your sex life.
