This major work explores the transformation of attitudes to sexuality over the last 200 years. It provides detailed discussions of class differences, the significance of family, the changing experiences of childhood, changing concepts of female sexuality, the development of theories of homosexuality and the role of class.

Since the first edition of this major work was published in 1981 Britain has experienced major social and political transformations, which have had a significant impact on the regulation of sexuality. This book has been revised and a new chapter examines the effects of AIDS and its relationship to the new `moral agenda' that has emerged in recent years.
