Sex, the Illustrated History: Through Time, Religion, and Culture

Volume 1:  Sex in the ancient world, Early Europe to the Renaissance, and Islam

 

Sex, The Illustrated History, Volume I, begins a daring  exploration of human sexuality from the ancient to the modern world. Revealed are sexual practices and beliefs previously omitted or obscured from all historical telling. In a scathing condemnation of religion and its control of sex, the book explores complex relationships between spirituality and sexuality. The supremacy of the mother goddess throughout most of human existence, and her relatively recent fall, is detailed in both word and image. These pages share graphic erotic art works and explicit literary excerpts, painstakingly culled from the hidden treasure trove of cultures throughout history. Sex, The Illustrated History, traces sexual attitudes from the transcendent to the bizarre throughout the worlds’ cultures. The often explicit illustrations are linked by historical and anthropological content, inviting the reader to experience sexuality through varied and often shocking cultural lenses. Over 300 images have been gathered by the author, in his travels and studies of world cultures. An encyclopedic tour of the sexuality of humankind!

 

 

A startling achievement! Nothing like this has ever been published. A prodigious and iconoclastic odyssey into human sexuality through ages and cultures. A new light is cast upon lesser explored topics in the history of sexuality; bisexuality, the subjugation of women, and the exploitation of women and boys. Hundreds of images of sexual and erotic life in various cultures help to tell this impeccably documented tale of human sensuality. Challenging and confronting, this book is sure to disrupt cherished beliefs about religion and sex.

—Dr. T.W.Vickers

Personally I was enriched by this book, and learned a vast amount of new sexual material. This book is both unsafe and pernicious if you share this most common superstition in our culture, the idea that words can be dangerous. I applaud his lifework.

—Robert Anton Wilson
