For most of western history, all sex outside marriage was illegal, punished by the church and state. Then, between 1600 and 1800, this traditional world-view was shattered by a revolutionary new idea − that consenting adults should have the freedom to do what they like with their own bodies. This acclaimed, groundbreaking book shows that the creation of our modern sexual culture − in which sex is ever more private, yet ever more publicised − was a central part of the Enlightenment. The first sexual revolution helped create a new model of western civilization, whose principles of equality, privacy, and individual freedom last to this day.
