Summary
"The Bald-Headed Hermit & The Artichoke is a unique guide to the lingo of sex, compiling over 15,000 terms relating to all aspects of human sexuality, from breasts and penises to fetishes, paraphernalia, and specific erotic practices. Taken from American, British, and Canadian sources, they offer varied and "imaginative" interpretations of sexual experience that are alternately literary, humourous, and shocking, while providing unusual insight into how western culture views sexual pleasure.
This offbeat thesaurus also documents how previously silent sexual communities, including gays, lesbians, and various fetishists and libertines, have challenged attitudes towards sexual expression, and continue to change the very language of sex."--Jacket.

Summary
The rich repertoire of sexual slang in this compendium offers fascinating clues to the sexual humor and taboos, perceptions and cultural biases, mores and sexual roles of English-speaking people in times past and present. It offers abundant evidence that language gives voice to the major concerns and preoccupations of the people who speak it. This book features more than 4,000 words, phrases, and quips that have or have had a sexual connotation; hundreds of quotations demonstrating how terms have been used by sources ranging from Chaucer, Shakespeare, and Blake to pop icons such as Lenny Bruce, Bette Midler and Madonna; terms in current use as well as archaic terms and how and when they were first used; 500 years of sexual slang from the United States, Canada, Britain, Australia, and South Africa; and full etymologies, explanations, and variations in usage from country to country and era to era.--[book jacket].

Summary
International in outlook, thoroughly broad-minded and wide-ranging in approach, Fetishes, Florentine Girdles and Other Explorations into the Sexual Imagination is a provocative and idiosyncratic feminist®s companion to the major religious, scientific, political and philosophical theories about sexuality as well as to the artists who have attempted to understand and represent the subject. The 250 alphabetically arranged entries range historically from the ancient world to the end to the twentieth century, and geographically form China to Australia, from Japan to the United States, through India, Africa, South America, the Caribbean and Europe. The entries, by feminist writers of diverse views, combine information with informed opinion, and build up to a passionate and high-spirited debate about sex and sexuality.
