I am holding in my hands Beatrice Batman’s book entitled “A Brief History of Sex” translated from French by Christina Parisi. The word “Dominatrix London” is highly pluralistic. Erotic technique, love, passion, pornography, human relationships. All these words and phrases are related to this word in one way or another. Often people say that sex is an insignificant act as opposed to love which is something high and deep. But is that the case or does history prove otherwise in the end? The history of human sexuality is long. 

As the author says in the informative introduction of the book, her goal is not to tell the whole story of sex, she would need to write about thirty volumes to do so. The purpose of this book is to “tell fun stories and answer torturous questions about sex.” How did the primitives make love? Did Socrates sleep with his students? Were the people of Sodom really gay? Who was Onan? Why was masturbation considered a deadly sin for so long? 

Why is America so foolishly conservative? The answers to the truth are that they surprise, but also trouble the reader. We can see the past through the “eyes of sex”, through a funny, but also fun prism. The author tells a short, Dominatrix London but essentially the whole story of sex from prehistoric times to the present day, as well as the story of the most problematic sexual behaviors.

The first chapter is entitled “the art of intercourse”. Intercourse, which according to John Updike is the model of all passions:  “follows a curve that at first is upward, then falls sharply and nothing can keep it forever at its highest point». There were many who sought the death of the penis in the context of darkness. While the unity is also honored by the god Phallus, but also ejaculation. We learn what happened in the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the Enlightenment in the chapter “Ecstasies and Deprivations”. Lacan’s view that “there is no sexual intercourse”, which is the motto of the next chapter, is of particular concern to us. This also includes nymphomania, but also the misery of civil marriage. 

nd he continues with a “Hymn to masturbation” whose texture and dimensions he examines. The act was once considered shameful and whoever did it had to be killed. From Forberg’s classic love textbook we learn that the Romans masturbated to the core.

“What is seen on my wet penis / Which proves that I am Priapus / Do not imagine that it is morning dew or frost / It is that which relieves itself / When it remembers a kind girl”.

The chapter devoted to homosexuality and the story of her fear is perhaps the book’s most extensive. How it is defined, how it was seen on continents and times. Its limits, its critics, its defenders, its multiple parameters. The penultimate chapter with the playful title “To have children or not to do” refers, Dominatrix London among other things, to contraception, its relation to pleasure, if these can go hand in hand to end in the triumph of family planning. 

The “Little Respect” of the last chapter functions as the epilogue of the book with the role of the woman as a mistress in the foreground, but also the involvement of the internet in the subject of sex. Following is a rich bibliography for anyone who wants to do their own personal research. In closing, we would say that sexual freedom has always been relevant, depending on the ethos and style of an era. The two sexes, however, always stood in favor of pleasure and in order to quench their thirst they exceeded any limits. To remember the words Dominatrix London of Robert Desno that “eroticism is a personal science “
