This book will make absolutely enthralling reading…in another ten years. I feel like we’re riding a whole wave of new research in sexuality, history and psychology; and this book was just written 10 years too early. There’s tonnes of information, but it can be read in so many different ways and interpreted in so many different ways that it’s extremely difficult to draw conclusions. And which, for the most part, title nonwithstanding, the authors don’t do. They offer suggestions, make connections, point out flaws and issues, but there’s nothing solid anywhere. And if solid is what you’re looking for, you’re about 10 years too early.
