Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I liked several of the papers, such as Woollard's "Cheating with Jenna," which draws useful distinctions between cheating on one's partner and getting sexual enjoyment from porn, which makes a worthwhile point, and Roger Pipe's "Something for Everyone," which provides a useful history of porn.  Both of these articles, as many others in the book, could be useful in an undergraduate course." (Metapsychology, February 2011)
