Overview

This lush, provocative book explores sexuality from our earliest trysts to cybersex and beyond. It indulges in the toys, titillations, and temptations of the most pleasurable of all passions. With spice and flair, Maxwell takes us on a whirlwind tour of human sexuality that is comprehensive in its sweep yet delightful in its alluring and amusing details. Maxwell explores both the time-honored and the bizarre. He capably draws upon the juiciest sexual literature and lore of the past, then casts light on the exciting particulars of modern-day sex, where sex roles (and sex play!) are changing at a frenetic pace. How have the feminist revolution, and the new "Masculine Mystique," changed our concepts of what is sexy or macho? What enticing new images and erotic encounters will the Internet and CD-ROM offer users of the future? How have AIDS and the need for "safe sex" inspired us to dream up ever-more creative erotic adventures? Will the twenty-first century bring about a complete separation between making babies and making love? Between the covers, Maxwell divulges the great love-making secrets of the past, and how openness, experimentation, and creativity will help us "soar to the Elysian heights of sexual pleasure" in the future.
