Description - Masturbation by Jean Stengers
A funny and frightening history of attitudes towards masturbation and how they have affected the sex lives of pretty much everyone living and breathing today. From the French biologist, Tissot, the original spoll-sport who turned masturbation into the scourge of young men everywhere, to the punitive German courts, to the surgical preventatives of continental Europe and England (don't ask!), to the Boy Scouts of America. It's all here, it isn't pretty but it's certainly fascinating. Includes 14 pages of illustrations!
