Sex Rules!: Astonishing Sexual Practices and Gender Roles Around the World

Sex Rules!: Astonishing Sexual Practices and Gender Roles Around the World
Brodman, Janice Z.

"Sex is always hot. Other people's lusty antics even hotter. This book pulls back the curtains on a dizzying array of hilarious stereotype-busting sexual practices from around the world. It is joyful, deliciously outrageous, titillating, hilarious. The fact that it's all true makes it even more fascinating. It takes the ever-intriguing question "What is 'normal' sex?" and creates a rollicking worldwide tour with LOL perspectives on extraordinary sexual activity. It will astound you, regale you, blow you away. At the same time, it expands your tolerance, proving sex is like happiness - universally sought but subjectively enjoyed."--Provided by publisher.

The Republic

The Republic
Plato

"Plato's Republic is widely acknowledged as the cornerstone of Western philosophy. Presented in the form of a dialogue between Socrates and three different interlocutors, it is an inquiry into the notion of a perfect community and the ideal individual within it. During the conversation other questions are raised: what is goodness; what is reality ; what is knowledge? The Republic also addresses the purpose of education and the roles of both women and men as 'guardians' of the people. With remarkable lucidity and deft use of allegory, Plato arrives at a depiction of a state bound by harmony and ruled by 'philosopher kings'"--Page 4 of cover.
