In this masterful study, Herbert Richardson uncovers the psychological and historical forces behind today's sexual upheaval. He explores the varieties of human sexuality and interprets sexual behavior as bodily expression of inner spiritual states. Sexual evolution is seen to be a visible emblem of transformations in the human spirit.

This valuable discussion of how we are in and experience our sexual selves touches on:
* why sex and love are traditionally thought to be unreconcilable
* how war created patriarchy and agrressive sex
* whether witches cause impotence
* why only Americans engaged in petting
* what's wrong with seeking orgasm as the goal in sex
* how romantic marriage creates social revolution
* why heterosexuality is always bisexuality
* what is the function of virginity
