The Poisoned Embrace : A Brief History of Sexual Pessimism
The Poisoned Embrace A Brief History of Sexual Pessimism
Author: Lawrence Osborne
Since the days of the Early Fathers, sex and death have formed a theological equation known as "sexual pessimism"--an aversion to the carnal which consequently elevates the virginal and the chaste. Here, Osborne gives a bracing account of how we imagine one of the most intimate aspects of our lives.
