Our society is obsessed with sex - and yet we don't understand it at all. Acclaimed philosopher J. Budziszewski remedies the problem in this wise, gracefully written book about the nature, meaning, and mysteries of sexuality.

On the Meaning of Sex corrects the most prevalent errors about sex - particularly those of the sexual revolution, which by mistaking pleasure for a good in itself has caused untold pain and suffering.
