This delightful work by two internationally acclaimed sexologists takes the reader on a guided tour through the many assumptions we humans harbour about our own sexuality. When did masturbation stop being a cause of insanity and become a normal part of sexual development? When did we stop viewing homosexuality as a sin or a sickness and accept it as a form of sexual expression? The Bulloughs highlight the ways in which social, moral, and religious attitudes have dramatically changed from being based upon pervasive myths to relying on more science-based realities. They even show how, in the past, science unwittingly helped perpetuate some myths.
