SEX IN HISTORY
by Reay Tannahill (Food in History). B&W illustrations.
Condition: UNREAD, BUT NOT PERFECT, 1992 Scarborough large soft cover (490 pages), revised & updated edition. Problem: shelfwear diagonal crease bottom front cover corner - you know when some idiot shoves a book back on the shelf where there is no room for it - that's what caused this crease.
Content: Sanity on the subject of sex is all too rare; wit is in even shorter supply; and an engaging style is about as commonplace as eyebrows on an egg. Reviewer: "Tanahill's writing is witty,interesting, and unbiased. She addresses the history of sexuality in almost every country and culture (not just Europe, which is what usually happens) and gives a history of humankind, from the Neolithic Revolution to the 1980s. It's well-researched and incredibly informative, filled with facts about gender roles and sexuality (and how this affects everything else in a society) throughout time." Questions welcome.
