A "how to" book written before AIDS, but almost a decade after Stonewall, before gay men.... I was going to say "were accepted and not hated and feared and bashed," but can't say that.

It's a primer that now might seem quaint, and does contain some graphic photos and illustrations (I suspect the reviewer who gave it 1/2 star was reviewing homosexuality, not this book.) The books contains a lot of interesting anecdotes about homosexuality in other cultures and in past centuries.

Much of the information is still pertinent, but the specter of AIDS would certainly color much of the chapters if the book was written today (especially the one on anal sex.) Condoms were not a hot gay sex topic in 1977.
