The politics of lust.


The politics of lust.

Ince, John.

Prometheus Books


335 pages




Lawyer and journalist Ince specializes in laws pertaining to sexuality, and co-founded the Art of Loving, a sexuality center in Vancouver, British Columbia. Here he argues that people's in-born erotic hedonism are powerful irrational fears about their own sexuality and that of other people. He examines the condition social scientists call erotophobia, its impact on people's lives and culture, and the political system that imprints it in their minds. First published by Pivotal Press, Vancouver, in 2003. There is no index.
