Sex Guides : Books and Films About Sexuality for Young Adults Hardback
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Literature and Sexuality series
The history of the sex guide for adolescents documents the quite unconscious movement of Western culture's ideas about sex and youth, revealing the heritage of our own sexual beliefs and codes of behaviour.
The first section of this book, first published in 1986, traces the development of the sex guide, examining 400 books from 1892 to the 1980s.
The second section comprises a detailed analysis of the patterns, content and usefulness of all the contemporary manifestations of the genre.
The history of the teen sex manual is a fascinating revelation of American attitudes towards adolescent sexuality.
