Think you are open minded?,
This review is from: Perv: The Sexual Deviant in All of Us (Hardcover)
You might imagine that a potted history of the social and religious precedents for ostracising those who were outside the sexual `norm', the medicalisation of perceived deviant sexuality, a review of key psycho-sexual research findings and exposing the hypocrisy of the press-fuelled hysteria around extreme sexual deviants, despite contradictory scientific evidence, might be challenging topics through which to maintain a reader's interest. Jesse Bering, however, achieves a cheeky. mischievous and playful narration with a smattering of exhibitionistic self-revelation. If you can retain a thoroughly open mind and would love to know the latin name for a paraphilia centred on gravel, look no further - you won't regret it!
