Ms. Maddex has created an interesting and well-researched book that allows the reader to learn a bit more about New York City's vast sexual history over the centuries. Starting with Dutch settlements in the 1600's all the way through to the current times, the book attempts to canvas New York City's sex culture through individual stories and news snippets accompanied with illustrations and/or photos. Some of these individual snippets on each page are extremely interesting as there are stories plucked directly from the headlines of the time. Moreover, Ms. Maddex attempts to catalog the history of women and gays over the centuries.
This book adds a new dimension if you have lived in NYC and have an appreciation for its rich history. The only drawback is that after I completed the book, I wasn't sure what Ms. Maddex was trying to say besides just cataloging the sex culture of NYC over the centuries. I wanted some overarching theme that tied all of the stories together more tightly. But regardless, you will be entertained.

I loved this book--heard about it from artist friends in NYC. It's got terrific visuals--the stuff the author found is really unique and HOT. Really enjoyed the writing too--a lot of fun. Not all that boring theory you get from the campus types. This is a great gift book--I already got it for my cousin's birthday in Mexico. Plus it has nifty design so is like a coffee table book you can leave out when people visit. Wish all books on sex were like that--sort of classy with lots to look at.
