Oxford University Press

From the 1940s, the sex manuals reflected a slow acceptance by society of varied physical sexual practices. There was a contradictory and contested re-emergence of male domination, justified by popular interpretations of psychoanalysis, within the genre as the influence of first wave feminism and the need for sexual continence to control fertility receded into the past.

Keywords:   psychoanalysis, women's sexual desire, second wave feminism, male sexuality
