Book Review: Sex and Punishment

Sex and Punishment, Eric Berkowitz, Counterpoint, 2013. 352 Pages.

Sex, instinctive, basic, as old as humanity, in all it’s rainbow of variations and choices.

Law, the pinnacle of civilization, what distinguish us from savages, supposedly the reflection of reason.

Two of the most potent forces in humanity, constantly colluding and shaping one another.

How law has being used to shape the most basic instinct, and how it has shaped humanity perceptions of sex for 3000 years.

Amazing read, well written and researched. Eye-opening. Highly recommended.
