The Origin of Sex by Faramerz Dabhoiwala

The Origin of Sex
” Dabhiwala’s book argues that while most of western history was set in its strict roles and attitudes towards out of marriage sexual relationships, it was all shattered in the 1600s and 1800s by an unlikely revolutionary idea that heard many say that sex is a private act and that the mortal thoughts of some should not be forced on to others.”

Sex, do you remember when it was stigma to talk about sex openly? Do you remember when sex out of marriage was not socially acceptable? Oh have the times changed. It makes you wonder if our modern society has made sex less valuable. There is no denying that sex, particularly among our younger generation (those aged 15- 18) see sex as nothing more than an act simply done with no value or importance any more. Do you ever wonder where it all  began?

English author Faramerz Dabhoiwala answers this question with his first book The Origin of Sex: A History of the First Sexual Revolution. Dabhiwala’s book argues that while most of western history lived by  its strict roles and attitudes towards out of wedlock sexual relationships, it was all shattered in the 1600s and 1800s by an unlikely revolutionary idea that stated ‘sex is a private act and that the mortal thoughts of some should not be forced on to others.’

This book sounds like an interesting read and would work wonders for those who are taking a course in college about the history of sex or the ideology surrounding society and sex or even the modern views of sexual relationships when compared to the invention of pornography. There is also the age old feud of Morality versus Freedom  Dabhoiwala does give a lot of great points and does point out that our modern culture of sex is helping to fuel the ideas the revolution began in the 1600s and 1800s. Although it will always comes back to the mortality or the freedom feud.

Overall this is worth seeking out if you are interested in the subject and history. It is very educational and to me, it is a great read that will have you thinking about both sides of the argument.

You can find a copy on Amazon as well as Penguin Publishings.
