Sex is one of the great joys of life - satisfying to the body, sublime to the soul. But when we examine our sexual psychology with a careful eye, we will find a reservoir of fear toward sexual expression. From nudity to public sex, masturbation to homosexuality, monogamy to group sex, pornography to prostitution, eroticism secretly disturbs us. Yet the existence of this pervasive sexual anxiety is not widely recognized.

The Politics of Lust exposes our hidden sexual anxiety and the disturbing social system that breeds it in the minds of millions of people. The challenging ideas set out in this book will give you a radical new perspective on your sexuality and your society.
