Diet for a New America.
Candles, music, flowers, and wine-these we all know are the stuff of romance, of sex, and of love. ~ Chapter One
Sacred Pleasure explores the past, present, and potential future of sex. It looks at both sex and the sacred in the larger context of our cultural and biological evolution. It demystifies much in our sexual history that has been confusing, indeed incomprehensible, shedding new light on matters still generally shoved under the rug of the religious dogma or scientific jargon. It shows that the struggle for our future is not just political in the conventional sense of the word, but revolves around fundamental issues of pain and pleasure. Above all, it helps us better understand--and thus break free of--the agonies we chronically suffer in our search for healthier and more satisfying ways of living and loving.

More important that Simone de Beauvoir's Second Sex. A political, economic, and spiritual springboard representing a great leap forward for humanity. This book is remarkable for its impassioned pursuit of justice for women, children and men-moving the discussion and understanding of what is required to address human rights to a new height.
