"Reproduction is nature's paramount work; because to all else what foundation is to house-its sine qua non. It has its science, or natural laws, prescribed modus operandi, and instrumentalities. Gender is its master workman, and Nature's "male and female" arrangement, with its governing laws, her chosen "ways and means" of originating all life: which growth completes. Sexuality, its laws, facts, conditions, right action, improvement, etc., thus becomes the master problem, as yet unsolved, of every individual of the whole family of man; because on it depend the number, and the primal attributes, of all human beings, throughout all time and eternity; and of all other terrestrial productions. To originate life, and predetermine character, and thereby govern whatever appertains to man and Nature, is its infinitely exalted mission. This renders it the great motor wheel of all mundane productions, throughout all their functions. "Males and females," with all their specialties and interrelations, it creates, and employs in executing all these mighty results. Love, their mutual attraction, that highest and holiest, most sacred and fervent human emotion, religion scarcely excepted, is its all potential means, and just as antecedent and prerequisite to it as morning to noon. These all-glorious truths it has taught him, he here teaches readers. Find their echoes away down throughout all the interior recesses of human nature. Its subject-matter subdivides itself naturally into nine Parts, as follows: Gender, or sexuality; Love; Conjugal and parental adaptations; Courtship; Married life; Maternity; Rearing and governing children; and finally, Sexual ailments and restorations"--Preface.

Sexual Science and the Law

A rape victim charges that pornography caused her attacker to become a sex offender. A lesbian mother fights for custody of her child. A transsexual pilot is fired by a commercial airline after undergoing sex change and sues for sex discrimination. A homosexual is denied employment because of sexual orientation. A woman argues that her criminal behavior should be excused because she suffers from premenstrual syndrome. The law has much to say about sexual behavior, but what it says is rarely influenced by the findings of social science research over recent decades. This book focuses for the first time on the dynamic interplay between sexual science and legal decisionmaking. Reflecting the author's wide experience as a respected sex researcher, expert witness, and lawyer, Sexual Science and the Law provides valuable insights into some of the most controversial social and sexual topics of our time. Drawing on an exhaustive knowledge of the relevant research and citing extensively from case law and court transcripts, Richard Green demonstrates how the work of sexual science could bring about a transformation in jurisprudence, informing the courts in their deliberations on issues such as sexual privacy, homosexuality, prostitution, abortion, pornography, and sexual abuse. In each case he considers, Green shows how the law has been shaped by social science or impoverished by reliance on conjecture and received wisdom. He examines the role of sexual science in legal controversy, its analysis of human motivation and behavior, and its use by the courts in determining the relative weight to be given the desires of the individual, the standards of society, and the power of the state in limiting sexual autonomy. Unprecedented in its portrayal of sexuality in a legal context, this scholarly but readable book will interest and educate professional and layperson alike--those lawyers, judges, sex educators, therapists, patients, and citizens who find themselves standing nonplussed at the meeting place of morality and behavior.

Sex has no history, but sexual science does. Starting in the late nineteenth century, scholars and activists all over the world suddenly began to insist that understandings of sex be based on science. As Japanese and Indian sexologists influenced their German, British and American counterparts, and vice versa, sexuality, modernity, and imaginings of exotified “Others” became intimately linked. The first anthology to provide a worldwide perspective on the birth and development of the field, A Global History of Sexual Science contends that actors outside of Europe—in Asia, Latin America, and Africa—became important interlocutors in debates on prostitution, birth control or transvestitism. Ideas circulated through intellectual exchange, travel, and internationally produced and disseminated publications. Twenty scholars tackle specific issues, including the female orgasm and the criminalization of male homosexuality, to demonstrate how concepts and ideas introduced by sexual scientists gained currency throughout the modern world.
