America's War on Sex Summary


America's War on Sex: The Attack on Law, Lust and Liberty by Marty Klein

President George W. Bush says that, In our free society, people have the right to choose how they live their lives. But our government and the Religious Right are successfully censoring what you read, hear, and see; limiting your access to contraception; legislating good moral values; and brainwashing your kids that God hates premarital sex. The Right has politicized private life, expanding the zone of public sexuality. This guarantees policies that will worsen social problems and increase personal anxiety, providing proof that sexuality is fundamentally negative-so citizens demand more sex-negative policies. With examples ripped from today's headlines, with brutal honesty and a wicked sense of humor, Marty Klein names names, challenges political hypocrisy, and shows the financial connections between government and conservative religious groups that are systematically taking away your rights. And, in the process, changing American society-forever.

America's War on Sex Reviews


"Klein's careful work torpedoing the erotophobic war against sex had to be done, and he did it well." - Journal of Sex Research
"Although Klein does not provide an easy fix to the vexing problems posed by erotophobes, crusaders, the Christian-American Taliban, or religious terrorists, terms not guaranteed to assuage the opposition, he does offer sufficient examples of the war on our fundamental liberties to energize even the most laid-back of his readers. This book will infuriate people on both ends of the political spectrum, if for different reasons. That is a rare accomplishment, and one that deserves to be experienced. If America's War on Sex helps to begin to redress the balance between individual freedom of expression and the society's responsibility to protect the well-being of its citizenry, it will have made a major contribution to life in this land of the free." - PsycCRITIQUES
"Adding to his already impressive roster of works on human sexuality, renowned author, sex educator, and therapist Marty Klein has surpassed all previous efforts with this incisive exploration of the sexual battleground that our country has become." - The Gay & Lesbian Review
"The book is a great resource for anyone trying to come to grips with society's turmoil over sexuality as well as for anyone interested in understanding their own sexuality in a social and political context. If knowledge is power, readers will feel quite empowered after reading Klein's book." - www.curledup.com
