A lively, scholarly, and often startling exploration of nineteenth-century American attitudes toward sexuality – what we felt, thought, wrote, and sad about the human body; about love, lust, intercourse, masturbation, contraception, and abortion; about the power of sexual words and images. The censorious crusades of Anthony Comstock, the free love movement, the growth of the erotica industry, the beginnings of the scientific study of contraception and more are explored in this fascinating portrait of an age. Illustrated throughout with photographs and period etchings
