Description - The Pleasure's All Mine by Julie Peakman
Homosexuals, transvestites, transsexuals, sado-masochists, necrophiliacs - all of these have been, or still are, considered `deviants'. Concomitantly there has been an almost universal acceptance that unembellished vaginal penetration, performed by one man and one woman, is `normal' sex. This is now contested. But what is perverse sex and what isn't? The Pleasure's All Mine explores the gamut of sexual activity that has been seen as strange, abnormal or deviant over the last 2,000 years.
