Sex, The Illustrated History, Volume I, begins a daring exploration of human sexuality from the ancient to the modern world. Revealed are sexual practices and beliefs previously omitted or obscured from all historical telling. In a scathing condemnation of religion and its control of sex, the book explores complex relationships between spirituality and sexuality. The supremacy of the mother goddess throughout most of human existence, and her relatively recent fall, is detailed in both word and image. These pages share graphic erotic art works and explicit literary excerpts, painstakingly culled from the hidden treasure trove of cultures throughout history. Sex, The Illustrated History, traces sexual attitudes from the transcendent to the bizarre throughout the worlds' cultures. The often explicit illustrations are linked by historical and anthropological content, inviting the reader to experience sexuality through varied and often shocking cultural lenses. Over 300 images have been gathered by the author, in his travels and studies of world cultures. An encyclopedic tour of the sexuality of humankind!

The fight was a long and hard fought one; prejudice and prudery, and claimsof morality and law, standing rigidly against a new rationalism beginning in the reformation.The book explores in depth; historical and contemporary worldwide slavery, forced marriage, child brides, abusesof the Catholic Church and sexual trafficking.

Revealed are sexual practices and beliefs previously omitted or obscured from all historical telling. This work explores complex relationships between Eastern spirituality and sexuality. The author continues the exploration of religion's control over sexuality and the projection of women as both goddess and chattel. Sex, the Illustrated History traces sexual attitudes from the transcendent to the bizarre throughout the world's cultures. These pages share graphic erotic artworks as well as explicit literary excerpts painstakingly culled from the hidden treasure troves of cultures throughout history. The often-explicit illustrations are linked by historical and anthropological content, inviting the reader to experience sexuality through varied and often-shocking cultural lenses. Each volume contains over 250 erotically themed images that have been gathered by the author in his travels and studies of world cultures. This is an encyclopedic tour of the sexuality of humankind! Reviews "A startling achievement! Nothing like this has ever been published. A prodigious and iconoclastic odyssey into human sexuality through ages and cultures. A new light is cast upon lesser-explored topics in the history of sexuality, bisexuality, the subjugation of women, and the exploitation of women and boys. Hundreds of images of sexual and erotic life in various cultures help to tell this impeccably documented tale of human sensuality. Challenging and confronting, this book is sure to disrupt cherished beliefs about religion and sex" (Dr. T. W. Vickers). "Personally, I was enriched by this book and learned a vast amount of new sexual material. This book is both unsafe and pernicious if you share this most common superstition in our culture, the idea that words can be dangerous. I know John from the Berkeley days, and he worked with Timothy Leary and myself on the Exo-series of Human Evolution. I applaud his life's work" (Robert Anton Wilson).

Sex has no history, but sexual science does. Starting in the late nineteenth century, scholars and activists all over the world suddenly began to insist that understandings of sex be based on science. As Japanese and Indian sexologists influenced their German, British and American counterparts, and vice versa, sexuality, modernity, and imaginings of exotified “Others” became intimately linked. The first anthology to provide a worldwide perspective on the birth and development of the field, A Global History of Sexual Science contends that actors outside of Europe—in Asia, Latin America, and Africa—became important interlocutors in debates on prostitution, birth control or transvestitism. Ideas circulated through intellectual exchange, travel, and internationally produced and disseminated publications. Twenty scholars tackle specific issues, including the female orgasm and the criminalization of male homosexuality, to demonstrate how concepts and ideas introduced by sexual scientists gained currency throughout the modern world.

In the early 1900s, a sexual revolution took place that was to define social relations between the sexes in America for generations. As Victorian values gradually faded, and a commercialized consumer culture emerged, the female figure of the flapper came to embody early-twentieth century femininity. Simultaneously, masculine ideals were also undergoing radical change. Who then was this New Man to accompany the New Woman? Who was the flapper's boyfriend? In this remarkable book, Kevin White draws on a vast array of sources to examine the ideology—spread through movies, advertisements, sex confession magazines, social hygienists, sex manuals, and Freudian popularizers —that has defined modern American manhood. Examining attitudes toward masturbation, homosexuality, violence against women, feminism, free love, and the emerging dating system, The First Sexual Revolution shows how American men in the Jazz Age were subjected to a barrage of information and advice about their sexuality that stressed not character but personality and sex appeal. Repression was out; sexual expression—performance—was in. This New Man was more egalitarian and more sexual than the Victorian patriarch. But the diffusion to the middle class of the Victorian underworld ethos of primitivism and violence against women, and the flight from commitment to relationships, heralded instability and tensions that continues to define American sexual relations. To illustrate this point, Dr. White takes a close look—through letters and diaries—at the successes and failures of nine marriages involving actively feminist women, demonstrating the pressures that this revolution in values caused. Dr. White concludes that the return to primitivism characterized by the men's movement marks the most recent aftershock of the revolution that has shaped us all.
