    legalized prostitution in the usa worked

    I am an amateur student of sex an am always looking for good informative books. This was one of the best I have read. It was clear, interesting to read and not insulting to those of us who understand the need for such a profession. It read some where between novel and history book and was a real page turner. I most enjoyed the letters where the solders noted that everyone in the army visited the gals but him, of course his tent mate wrote the same letter also. I have used the section on legalized prostitution in Nashville and Memphis as conversation fodder at several parties to get a great conversation going. This book is a must read for any civil war buff or sex buff.

    Funny & Entertaining

    Right from the get go this book grabs your attention. Lowry is an amazing writer that combines facts, statistics, and humor to keep you flipping the pages. At times you'll bust a side laughing at some of the little jokes tossed in throughout the book. It really makes you stop and think though... has there ever been a time in American society when people actually had morals & values??

    an interesting survey

    Thomas Lowry does an incredible job providing a window into the sexual and emotional minds of our very human ancestors, with the use of primary sources and statistics. The book was a relatively easy read and provides speculatve information, allowing the reader to draw many of his/her own conclusions. I was hoping for more on what was considered physically and sexually attractive during that time in history (since the concept of beauty seems to be constantly changing), but the information within the book surrounding prostitution, disease, and social propriety were equally as interesting.
