About this Item

The "hilarious but true" story of the demise of the A*P*E*--the American Puritan Ethic--in the United States during the course of the Sexual Revolution that began in the 1940s & continued into the 1970s, the country's "longest & hottest war." Subtitled, "The Obscening of America: An R*S*V*P* Document: (Redeeming Social Value Pornography)," the book combines personal memoir with a broad sexual history of humankind & a specific history of each stage in the revolution, interweaving cultural, social, technological, & political changes into the narrative.
