If you have read Reay Tannahill's Food in History, you won't be disappointed with this effort. Her probing into the history of sex as seen by cultures, governments, religions, and individuals is thought provoking. As the reader engages the written word and sometimes the illustrations, questions arise as to why certain sexual practices and ideas have been attacked. One person found this helpful. Some concerns about health problems for example, may be well founded, but others seem to be common sense solutions to being human.
