"Elizabeth Reis's American Sexual Histories is a highly readable and utterly valuable resource for students and for the generally curious. This book traces the ever-changing fears, obsessions, and sometimes surprisingly tolerant attitudes Americans have held on the subject of sexual practice from the Puritans to 'liberation' in the late twentieth century." Nancy Isenberg, University of Tulsa
"American Sexual Histories is that all-too-rare achievement: a book of first-rate scholarship that encourages equally first-rate teaching. It is an extremely valuable book for students, teachers, and scholars." Peggy Pascoe, University of Oregon
"This is a wonderful resource. Reis's clear introductions, thought-provoking scholarly articles, and exciting primary sources combine to create an indispensable collection for undergraduate classes." Sharon Block, University of California, Irvine
"Each chapter starts with an easy-to-read, very clear introduction written by Reis which should serve as a helpful guide for students ... American Sexual Histories makes on reconsider what is 'natural' or 'normal' in certain historical periods. And it sends the message that sex has a history like everything else. H-NET

He is filthy, but he is funny....The characters of "a" represent the bizarre new class, untermenschen's prefigurations of the technological millenium. -- The New York Review of Books
