Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Small area of laminate lifting at the head of the upper panel.

Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “As the twentieth century draws to a close, the most private and intimate of acts has become a public obsession: we are bombarded with sexual imagery in adverts, movies, websites, magazines and music. Sex is everywhere. However, at the beginning of the century our sex lives would have been very different. Sexual ignorance was commonplace and a more honest sexuality was only just beginning to emerge after the strictures and hypocrisy of the Victorian era.
