Good sex: perspectives on sexual ethics
"There is no other book quite like GOOD SEX, Raymond Belliotti's lively and engaging study of the ethical dimensions of human sexuality. Drawing upon a wide range of disciplines, from history and philosophy to current social criticism, Belliotti takes up the most explosive aspects of his subject and treats them all with good sense and good humor. A splendid book that sets a new standard for work in this area".--James Rachels, author of CREATED FROM ANIMALS: THE MORAL IMPLICATIONS OF DARWINISM.
