MEDIA REVIEWS
''Bancroft pays tribute to societal views and expectations throughout the fifteen chapters. Gender differences in particular are discussed in depth, giving the reader an understanding of the history and evolution of women's sexuality over the last several decades. The book is meant for academics, professionals, and graduate students. The 546 pages are full of statistics, facts, and recent research and theories on the topic.''
