Just Sex chronicles the movement to bring an end to all forms of sexual violence on campus and gives voice not only to rape victims but also to reformed rape perpetrators, who describe the twisted logic through which rape becomes "acceptable" to young males and their peers. Just Sex also gathers testimonials about homosexual rape, minorities and sexual violence, and presents the most complete collection of essays and primary documents on a movement that has altered the sexual landscape of our campuses and communities forever.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book represents the work and thought of a series of college generations for whom stopping rape has the same import that ending legal race-based segregation and stopping the Vietnam War had on college campuses in the sixties . . . . Just Sex goes right to the heart of what differentiates sex from rape, what differentiates a human engaging in sex from an object used for sexual release; what makes sex intimate instead of annihilating. This is a book my generation of feminists (who were, before that, sexual liberationists) could not have imagined, because this current generation of assault-and-rape prevention advocates are engaged in the process of making both sex and intimacy a whole-body, whole-mind experience. -- Andrea Dworkin, from the foreword
Just Sex is the long overdue counterweight to post-feminism invective, an archive for the as yet unwritten history of the feminism movement to end sexual violence. Just Sex offers a much-needed counter-history to reports of the death of feminism. These essays proclaim that feminist activism is very much alive. Just Sex is an exceptionally useful student handbook, and a tool for making 'just sex' possible, on college campuses and in the world beyond them. -- Lisa Marcus * The Women's Review Of Books, Vol. Xvii, No.7, April 2000 *
