View: 3922((( THIS IS NOT A PORN BOOK))) - (+18, Full illustrated) The Acrobatic Sex Positions brings exciting twists and turns to 69 sex positions so wild you almost won't believe them. Not for the timid, these positions challenge flexibility and stamina and will get readers head over heels-as well as sideways and upside down--to facilitate deep penetration, hit multiple hot spots, and yield amazing orgasms. Stairway to Heaven: A sexy intercourse position where she stands one step above him on the stair case. He enters her from behind and lifts and folds her legs back and around his waist giving her amazing G-spot stimulation. Over the Rainbow: His palms and feet are flat on the floor with his body arched. She is draped over his body, her back following the same bend as his, her feet resting on his chest. From the side, their bodies form an arc-shaped rainbow. The rush of blood to the head makes this demanding position even more thrilling and intense. The Pretzel: He stands upright, and penetrates her in rear-entry position. He supports her waist while she pushes her arms back and raises her legs until she can grasp her ankles with her hands, as in the bow yoga position. Once she’s in place, the grip of her thighs should be enough to support her. He can keep one arm wrapped around her waist for added support; the other is free to stimulate her breasts and clitoris. The ultra-tight penetration means more stimulation for him and an ultimate filled-up feeling for her.

Heterosexuality and the Third Gender in Enlightenment London
Author: Randolph Trumbach
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
Category: Social Science
View: 1294A revolution in gender relations occurred in London around 1700, resulting in a sexual system that endured in many aspects until the sexual revolution of the 1960s. For the first time in European history, there emerged three genders: men, women, and a third gender of adult effeminate sodomites, or homosexuals. This third gender had radical consequences for the sexual lives of most men and women since it promoted an opposing ideal of exclusive heterosexuality. In Sex and the Gender Revolution, Randolph Trumbach reconstructs the worlds of eighteenth-century prostitution, illegitimacy, sexual violence, and adultery. In those worlds the majority of men became heterosexuals by avoiding sodomy and sodomite behavior. As men defined themselves more and more as heterosexuals, women generally experienced the new male heterosexuality as its victims. But women—as prostitutes, seduced servants, remarrying widows, and adulterous wives— also pursued passion. The seamy sexual underworld of extramarital behavior was central not only to the sexual lives of men and women, but to the very existence of marriage, the family, domesticity, and romantic love. London emerges as not only a geographical site but as an actor in its own right, mapping out domains where patriarchy, heterosexuality, domesticity, and female resistance take vivid form in our imaginations and senses. As comprehensive and authoritative as it is eloquent and provocative, this book will become an indispensable study for social and cultural historians and delightful reading for anyone interested in taking a close look at sex and gender in eighteenth-century London.

Gendered Violence, Political Order, and the European Conquest of the Americas
Author: Richard C. Trexler
Publisher: Cornell University Press
Category: Social Science
View: 6511This highly original book is the first study of American sexuality at the time of the conquests. It examines the sexual relations, mainly between males, that the Spaniards and Portuguese encountered when they entered various parts of the Americas from 1492 until around 1750. Trexler focuses above all on the native American berdaches or 'she-men' - the biological males in tribes across the Americas who, in all possible ways, imitated women throughout their lifetimes. The author explores in detail the reactions of the Spaniards and the Portuguese to the appearance and behaviour of the berdaches, using this as a way to reflect on European sexuality, on sexual relations in the Americas and on the relations - sexual and otherwise - between conquerors and conquered. The main argument of the book is that much of the homosexual behaviour and transvestism encountered by the Iberians resulted from social constraints among the American tribes themselves. Trexler shows that the sexual attitudes of the Americans were not at all like the innocent freedom that some commentators have imagined. The analysis of the berdaches, and of the native Americans' despisal of them, therefore helps to shed light on the forms of social and political organization and on the kinds of coercion and abuse which existed in the Americas at the time of the Conquests. This book will disrupt some conventional ways of thinking and will stimulate fresh debate about the role of sexuality in the conquest of the Americas.

View: 8747Sexuality in the ancient world has received much scholarly attention in the last few years, but authors have tended to confine themselves to the literary sources from Greece and Rome. There has also been a concentration on issues of social dominance and control at the expense of analysing the emotional and experiential aspects of sexual life, for which Egypt is a unique source. This is the first comprehensive study of sex in ancient Egypt. It considers sex in its broadest sense, analysing not only the sexual practices of individual people but also the ways in which sexual activity was indivisibly woven into the fabric of social and communal life. The main sources are the innumerable private documents written in Egypt during the Graeco-Roman period, and almost miraculously preserved by the dry climate. All types of documents are used, from magic spells for winning over a lover to judicial accounts of sexual crimes, many of them translated here into English for the first time. From these fragments, a world has been reconstructed in which real people move and function as sexual beings. This is an innovative addition to our knowledge of the ancient world, and has much to say about the construction of sexuality in the ancient world, about notions of the self and the sexual self, and about the ways that people inhabited their bodies.
