Klein is critical of censorship, the concepts of "sex addiction" and "porn addiction," and the anti-pornography movement. He has written five books on sexuality, most recently America’s War on Sex, honored as the year’s Best Sexuality Book by AASECT. It documents how the issue of sexual regulation is being used to undermine secular democracy.
Klein’s work continually challenges American society’s (and psychotherapy’s) assumptions about sexuality; he is particularly critical of what he calls the “Sexual Disaster Industry” and the “Oprah-ization” of psychotherapy and medicine. More recently he has spoken out against the criminalization and cruel punishment of teen “sexting.”
Klein has written over 100 articles for publications such as The Journal of Sex Research, San Francisco Medicine, The Journal of Homosexuality, and Contemporary Sexuality, as well as Parents, Playboy, American Baby, Modern Bride, and New Woman.
