Petrina Brown, Amberley Books, ISBN 976-1-84876-127-9, 2008.
I somewhat misleading title that I suspect was forced upon the author in order to make it provocative. This is a study of gender equality, sex and sexuality from pre-historic to modern time including chapters on homosexuality, lesbianism, attitudes towards masturbation, marriage, infidelity, prostitution and pornography. Well worth looking at alongside such books as "City of Vice" or "the Medieval Underworld".
