At a time when issues of domestic violence, rape, incest and pornography have fostered ambivalent attitudes towards sexuality, this book tackles the sexual myths and misconceptions that have corrupted male/female relations over the centuries. This exploration of the shifting balance of power between men and women offers a new key to understanding the sexual politics that fashion our culture. The book charts the course of sexual relations from prehistory, when sex was linked to all that was sacred, through the invasion of Europe by Nomadic warriors, when sex became a means of domination, to the earliest Western civilizations, the reign of the Church and the modern era. Asserting that the war between the sexes is not inevitable, the book offers a view of the future where sex and spirituality are intertwined, and where men and women are equal.
