Sex, The Illustrated History, Volume I, begins a daring exploration of human sexuality from the ancient to the modern world. Revealed are sexual practices and beliefs previously omitted or obscured from all historical telling. In a scathing condemnation of religion and its control of sex, the book explores complex relationships between spirituality and sexuality. The supremacy of the mother goddess throughout most of human existence, and her relatively recent fall, is detailed in both word and image. These pages share graphic erotic art works and explicit literary excerpts, painstakingly culled from the hidden treasure trove of cultures throughout history. Sex, The Illustrated History, traces sexual attitudes from the transcendent to the bizarre throughout the worlds' cultures. The often explicit illustrations are linked by historical and anthropological content, inviting the reader to experience sexuality through varied and often shocking cultural lenses. Over 300 images have been gathered by the author, in his travels and studies of world cultures. An encyclopedic tour of the sexuality of humankind!

Sex, the Illustrated History: Volume III continues a courageous exploration of sexual customs and conflicts into the modern world. This work explores the fight for sexual freedom in a world of often-repressed sexuality. The conflict with the church and its control of sexuality and law has stood as a barrier against freedom of human sexuality. The focus of this work is primarily the European and American theater, as they strive to rise above the ancient precepts that have girdled sexuality. The fight was a long and hard-fought one; prejudice and prudery and claims of morality and law stood rigidly against a new rationalism beginning in the Reformation. The book explores in depth historical and contemporary worldwide slavery, forced marriage, child brides, abuses of the Catholic Church, and sexual trafficking. Also explored are the history of homosexual movements, bisexuality, and the larger LGBT+ movements.

Reviews "A startling achievement! Nothing like this has ever been published. A prodigious and iconoclastic odyssey into human sexuality through ages and cultures. A new light is cast upon lesser-explored topics in the history of sexuality, bisexuality, the subjugation of women, and the exploitation of women and boys. Hundreds of images of sexual and erotic life in various cultures help to tell this impeccably documented tale of human sensuality. Challenging and confronting, this book is sure to disrupt cherished beliefs about religion and sex" (Dr. T. W. Vickers). "Personally, I was enriched by this book and learned a vast amount of new sexual material. This book is both unsafe and pernicious if you share this most common superstition in our culture, the idea that words can be dangerous. I know John from the Berkeley days, and he worked with Timothy Leary and myself on the Exo-series of Human Evolution. I applaud his life's work" (Robert Anton Wilson).

A Global History of Sexual Science, 1880–1960

Sex has no history, but sexual science does. Starting in the late nineteenth century, scholars and activists all over the world suddenly began to insist that understandings of sex be based on science. As Japanese and Indian sexologists influenced their German, British and American counterparts, and vice versa, sexuality, modernity, and imaginings of exotified “Others” became intimately linked. The first anthology to provide a worldwide perspective on the birth and development of the field, A Global History of Sexual Science contends that actors outside of Europe—in Asia, Latin America, and Africa—became important interlocutors in debates on prostitution, birth control or transvestitism. Ideas circulated through intellectual exchange, travel, and internationally produced and disseminated publications. Twenty scholars tackle specific issues, including the female orgasm and the criminalization of male homosexuality, to demonstrate how concepts and ideas introduced by sexual scientists gained currency throughout the modern world.

White contends that The Great American Man was constructed in the 1920s as a response to the appearance of The Flapper and to the same crumbling of Victorian culture that freed her. Previously, men were expected to acquire character and become Christian gentlemen; since then, they have been expected to acquire personality and to become a performing self.
