Sex in Crisis

I've got a review up at the Scene for this book by Dagmar Herzog--a fascinating, if somewhat blinkered, look at the Religious Right's sexual propaganda, and how it has fucked with all our heads, so to speak. Herzog makes a very broad claim and doesn't quite back it up, but the book is still a good, thought-provoking read. Her depiction of evangelical sex culture is a little sickening, but very funny. The review is here.

While you're at the Scene's website, go to the book page and check out Lacey Galbraith's review of Nashville Music Before Country by Tim Sharp, as well as a fun piece by Wayne Christeson on the new John Darnton novel, Black and White and Dead All Over.
