Really important, fascinating, under-appreciated book.

It is a crime that this book appear to be out of print. This is a super-smart book about heterosexual men and women who came of age in the 1960s and 1970s (fyi: I was born in 1982) and how they dealt with the "sexual revolution" and its fallout. This is a sensitive, thoughtful work of cultural history, based on interviews with real people who went through a particular era and reflect thoughtfully on it. This is an invaluable document of a particular historical moment that was challenging for straight women and men in different - but obviously connected - ways, i.e. ladies being all, "Yay, my orgasms are now being recognized as important/necessary" and dudes being all, "This is confusing and difficult because I was never acculturated/taught to deal with women's actual sexual needs/anatomy." Fascinating, humane, indispensable as a historical account of how real people lived, loved, and suffered. As an overly - credentialed academic I'll say that Rubin's contributions (in various fields) have not been adequately recognized.
