by David DePierre
The ancient Greeks and Romans considered it degrading to both parties yet depicted it prolifically in art and literature. The Early Christian Church called it “the worst evil,” punishable by seven years of penance and fasting (murder was one year). Nearly all of the 13 original American colonies had laws against it—except Georgia. A Victorian handbook for young brides advised how to “dampen his desire to kiss in forbidden territory.” Attitudes about oral sex have varied through the centuries and across cultures—a death sentence in some nations, a religious practice in others. This book explores its history as well as its impact on world events.
Here are the latest covers released for the fall 2017 season: Out for Queer Blood: The Murder of Fernando Rios and the Failure of New Orleans Justice by Clayton Delery-Edwards, The Trunk Dripped Blood: Five Sensational Murder Cases of the Early 20th Century by Mark Grossman, and A Brief History of Oral Sex by David DePierre.
