Gay Artists in Modern American Culture: An Imagined Conspiracy (Caravan Book)

This present day it's widely known that homosexual males performed a widespread function in defining the tradition of mid-20th-century the USA, with such icons as Tennessee Williams, Edward Albee, Aaron Copland, Samuel Barber, Montgomery Clift, and Rock Hudson defining a lot of what appeared rather "American" at the degree and display.

Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy

Screw everyone seems to be comic Ophira Eisenberg’s wisecracking account of the way she spent so much of her lifestyles asserting “yes” to everything—and everyone—and how that angle eventually helped her triumph over her phobia of commitment.

Skeptical approximately long term relationships, Eisenberg approached courting as a type of analysis scan from early on: she spent her twenties touring from futon to futon and collecting information, figuring that at some point she’d placed all of it jointly someway and construct her personal ideal Frankenmate. whilst she met a man who didn’t fall for the emotionally cavalier facade she’d built (a man who sought after marriage and monogamy), she knew it was once time to reevaluate.

From her first kiss to announcing “I do,” Screw everyone seems to be a good, hilarious chronicle of ways one lady found herself, conquered her fears, or even discovered the “real thing”—one promiscuous stumble upon at a time.

Le Sexe, d'hier à aujourd'hui

Un landscape de los angeles sexualité à travers les âges.
La pulsion sexuelle obéit à bien d’autres appels qu’à celui de l. a. survie de l’espèce, et témoigne, par les actes qu’elle induit, d’une grande diversité d’objets, de formes et de sens. Quelques repères dans l’histoire des moeurs humaines, allant de l’Antiquité à nos jours, permettent de le constater : en dépit de l’universalité des pratiques, ni leur forme, ni leur signification, ni les limites qu’on leur donne ne sont restées les mêmes, à travers l’histoire et les cultures, comme le montre l. a. première partie de cet ouvrage. Aujourd’hui, beaucoup de pratiques sexuelles qui, avant les années 1970, restaient problématiques voire réprouvées, sont ouvertement revendiquées et font l’objet de nombreuses études. On s’interroge sur los angeles libido du mâle nouveau et sur les formes de l. a. sexualité féminine. On scrute les pratiques des young people comme celles des personnes âgées. On inventorie les comportements pornomaniaques, les paraphilies… Ces nouveaux comportements sont tantôt qualifiés comme les éléments nécessaires d’une libéralisation des moeurs, tantôt, au contraire, comme un probability menaçant l’intégrité de chacun, et même de l. a. société. Cet ouvrage croise les regards de spécialistes de toutes disciplines – historiens, sociologues, sexologues, psychologues… – pour former un landscape de l. a. sexualité à travers les âges.
