Although we might like to think otherwise, our ancient ancestors were much more tolerant and accepting of human sexuality than modern Western society. This entertaining and eye-opening book traces the history of 'unconventional' sexuality and changing reactions to gay and lesbian people, prostitutes, adulterers and widows, from the earliest known female deities to Aquinas' view that women could have intercourse with Satan and the invention of 'homosexual' and 'heterosexual' identities in the 19th century.
