Sex And Punishment

Since you are reading this post, either you are not offended by the topic or you are offended but still curiosity got the better of you.  This is not a post about a dominatrix story.  If that is why you are here, then I would recommend watching the BBC series "Sherlock", season 2, episode 1 "A Scandal In Belgravia" for a tasteful dominatrix tale.

This post is about a new book I am reading, and liking very much, called "Sex and Punishment: Four Thousand Years of Judging Desire" by Eric Berkowitz.  This is a very interesting book on how different cultures, governments, religions, individuals judge how this basic human desire is/has been practiced  throughout history.  How one culture's leisure activity becomes another's crime just by crossing over  borders.  Highly recommended to the curious (and open) mind.
