A Guide to America's Sex Laws is the first concise compendium of the nation's sex laws.

From Alabama to Wyoming, this informative and fascinating reference book will be an essential resource.

"Especially noteworthy is how laws governing various sexual activities vary from state to state."—Library Journal

"Fascinating and often surprising facts are concisely documented and conveniently organized in A Guide."—Carlin Meyer, New York Law Journal
