Abstract

Beginning with the Edwardian theorists, like Edward Carpenter and Havelock Ellis, this work tells the history of changing sexual attitudes in 20th century Britain: the free love debate, sex psychologists, homosexual life in the 1930's, secret sex and World War II, the 1960's and the pill, gay rights, rape laws, the impact of AIDS and whole body sensuality. It sets private experience against well-known cases - from Lady Chatterley to Profumo, Thorpe and Archer - and against the dictates of the churches, courts and media.
