Bisexuality in the Ancient World
Bisexuality in the Ancient World
von Eva Cantarella
  Taschenbuch

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich
4.0 von 5 Sternen lots of good stuff, a few problems, 26. Juli 2000
First the problems. When a scholar uses such a wide range of sources, it is inevidentual that some will be used better than others. I think Cantarella has a good grasp of the legal and epigraphical evidence but her use of literature and plays is more tenuous. Likewise she crosses over from time periods at times, combining Greek sources from a Roman context into her discussion about Greece when they might best be a reflection of a new multiculture world. Finally, I can tell this was done on a computer. Several pages are word for word from her previous book "Pandora's Daughters". Computers are wonderful things but I don't think they should take the place of writing something new. There are several good points about this book. She uses a wide range of sources and attempts to place "reality" apart from "philosophy" a difference often overlooked in scholarship it seems. Her attempt to look at women's bisexuality is good though limited by the sources available. Finally the book is written clearly so that both scholar and non-scholar can appreciate and learn from it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Shorter than one would hope for., 13. Juli 2000
I received this book as an anniversary present and as I looked through it I asked my spouse "is this a gift for you or me?" as I pointed to the overwhelming number of naked and semi-naked images of heroines. The biggest question I had with this book was: What is the definition of heroine that both Miller and Sargent are using? Next I wanted to know why the book was so short. I've read several books about women writers, women characters, and feminism even in science fiction and fantasy. While the number of characters and authors they address is usually fewer they are more detailed. I can't say after reading this book that I understand why some of the characters are listed as heroines at all. Instead, the book seems more focused on starting to look at the changes in female characters over decades -- a topic that deserved at least twice this number of pages even if the pictures had to be a much smaller part of the concept.


Women's Life in Greece and Rome: A Source Book in Translation
Women's Life in Greece and Rome: A Source Book in Translation
von Mary Lefkowitz
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great resource for undergraduates and graduates, 19. Juni 2000
This collection of writings from the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome focus on women's lives. However, do not buy this thinking you are getting women's views, that is rare in the record. Well organized and well cited, it provides an excellent teaching aid to the professor and a quick reference to scholars and laypersons. It is best used in an introductory history class or a women's studies class. Could be difficult to understand without basic background materials.

4.0 von 5 Sternen read with Black Athena revisited, 19. Juni 2000
If you read this book with "Black Athena Revisited" you'll combine a scholarly assessment of the ancient evidence with this book, an assessment of the people and the politics which survive the Afro-centric quest. The problem is that most of those who promote the idea that Western civilization inherited and stole African civilization are people who understand neither the languages nor the histories they are compared. You can tell though that Mary Lefkowitz has a particular problem with this, though it is unclear why exactly. Lack of explaining this left me wondering about her own biases -- they go two ways.


The Bride Wore Black Leather... and He Looked Fabulous!: An Etiquette Guide for the Rest of Us
The Bride Wore Black Leather... and He Looked Fabulous!: An Etiquette Guide for the Rest of Us
von Drew Campbell
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good start to discussing the proper behavior ..., 12. Juni 2000
in non-traditional relationships. This book is a series of questions and suggested answers about situations which most folks will never have to consciously deal with as long as homosexual, polyamoury, and bdsm are in the background. However for those of us who claims these different ways of living, the book is a helpful beginning. Personally I don't think anyone should blindly follow an etiquette book, but use the questions and answers to come up with the appropriate behavior for their community or at least to monitor their own behavior. Good etiquette is for everyone -- class, race, role, sexuality, sex, or gender are irrelevant when it comes to matters of getting along at the basic level. Or to paraphrase an expression: etiquette was developed so two people could avoid killing each other. There are some questions missing that I would have liked addressed. For example, when you've been at an event and you and yours have volunteered to assist someone in a demostration, how is that person best thanked? Who says thanks and how quickly? Or how do you make suggestions for changes in an event without hurting the organizers feelings? Or how do you protect victims of abuse without lending strength to the "traditional world's" negative image of your alternative group? Overall a good resource to begin discussions of etiquette from and to read together as a couple or group.


Health Care Without Shame: A Handbook for the Sexually Diverse and Their Caregivers
Health Care Without Shame: A Handbook for the Sexually Diverse and Their Caregivers
von Charles Moser
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen A slow and safe approach for those frighten ..., 12. Juni 2000
of the health care system because of their sexuality. Now, I've never been one to not go to a doctor because of my sexuality -- I just don't like doctors period. But I always get an annual from my Gyn and I'm very upfront with my sexual choices -- I figure I'm paying, she can listen and give me the best information. Others however are not as comfortable and thus they miss those very necessary check ups. Now I don't think that the doctor should be someone's primary source of information about bdsm, but about general and specific health questions, that is their job. Doctor Moser gives two audiences reassurance that to be honest about your sexuality in relationship to doctors is a necessary thing: the lay public or consumers and the health care providers. I'm not sure that the two audiences in one book was the best approach -- I found the "providers" sections a bit dull to read but I think the "providers" can gain insight from the "consumers" section. The overall message of the books is simple: you are ultimately responsible for your well-being, this means getting your physical and emotional health tended to on a regular basis. Trust me, someone with experience in the scene, you are doing yourself a favor by seeing your doctor and you are performing a necessary task if you want to protect and care for your partners. Moser's book will help you overcome your concerns and reclaim your rights as a consumer and a human being.


The Erotic Bondage Book

Preis: EUR 17,99

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good basic introduction, but a bit tricky if ..., 31. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Erotic Bondage Book (Taschenbuch)
you don't know much about knots. A well written book that may over-do the safety cautions, but then it is better to be over-safe than injured anytime. A good deal of the book tells us who Jay Wiseman is, why he is qualified to write this book, and how he went about researching, experimenting, and writing it. A bit long for those who know about him but shoudl reassure those who are exploring this for the first time. Let me begin by saying that I am "lazy" and easily bored. I've never been a fan of bondage either, as those who read my erotica can attest to. So, I would have prefered the knots section to be more interwoven in the positions section, I had to flip back and forth, but I have enough experience that primarily the book is inspiration. Bottoms who like to wiggling and get out of bondage may be angered a bit at the section about their "tricks" but tops will pleased to learn how to counter some of these. Likewise the description of rope helped me understand those "safety cautions" you always here but which are not explained. Good for the beginner, those apprenticing to learn knots or being a good boyscout might be a good idea first.


Sex for the Millennium: Extreme Tales (Black Ice Books)
Sex for the Millennium: Extreme Tales (Black Ice Books)
von Harold Jaffe
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 8,49

1.0 von 5 Sternen shocking but not interesting, 18. Mai 2000
The situations described are shocking as the book promises. One big problem: you have difficulty following the stories. Written in a rather stream of consciousness style, the characters and events become more art than "reality" which I thought was the goal of good fiction, especially anything falling under the term "erotica". Not erotic at all.

4.0 von 5 Sternen complex, 18. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Female Man (Bluestreak) (Taschenbuch)
Complex, yes that describes the book well. In fact, unless one is highly intrigued by the concept of following several women through different times periods who are also perhaps the same woman (?), this may not be worth the work to read. A classic for its feminist view and controversial statements and images, I found it valuable to read but not enjoyable to read.

Sideshow (One Last Wish)

3.0 von 5 Sternen better than I was expecting, 17. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Sideshow (One Last Wish) (Taschenbuch)
A friend warned me "I can't figure this book out." Indeed it takes some work to follow the characters and pull out the important parts. But the two central characters, brother and sister both blessed and cursed, are interesting enough to help you push your way to the end. Not the happiest of books, but then the possible is rarely beautiful.
