For those fondly believing our own is one that has liberated itself from sexual taboos, Sex: Facts, Frauds and Follies is a disarming rebuke. In many ways sexual tyranny in our lives is more sublte because it flies under the false colours of freedom, openness, enlightment. But the attitudes that encourage sex-under-the-spotlight today are often as fraudulent as those that compelled sex-in-the-shadows a hundred years ago.Thomas Szasz takes to task the science of sexology which is so keen to apply its therapies to every variation from its self-defined norms of sexual behaviour or desire. His clear analysis releases the simple truth of our sexual actions and reactions from the insidious assertions which obstruct understanding today as much as did the wayward repressions of the past.
