    Straight
    The Surprisingly Short History of Hetrosexuality
    Like the typewriter and the light bulb, the heterosexual was invented in the 1860s and swiftly transformed Western culture. The idea of “the heterosexual” was unprecedented. After all, men and women had been having sex, marrying, building families, and sometimes even falling in love for millennia without having any special name for their emotions or acts. Yet, within half a century, “heterosexual” had become a byword for “normal,” enshrined in law, medicine, psychiatry, and the media as a new gold standard for human experience. With an eclectic scope and fascinating detail, Straight tells the eye-opening story of a complex and often contradictory man-made creation that turns out to be anything but straight or narrow. From the Hardcover edition.

    Virgin

    Virgin
    The Untouched History
    “A well-researched history of virginity…In an era marked by a ‘chaotic maelstrom of virginities,’ Blank’s book is a useful…antidote to our confusion.”—New York Times Book Review Hanne Blank’s revolutionary, rich, and entertaining survey of an astonishing untouched history reveals why humans have been fixated on an indefinable state of being since the dawn of time. As the butt of innumerable jokes, center of spiritual mysteries, locus of teenage angst, popular genre for pornography, and nucleus around which the world’s most powerful government has created an unprecedented abstinence policy, Virgin also shows how utterly important to contemporary times the topic is.

    Unruly Appetites

    Unruly Appetites
    Erotic Stories
    This deftly written collection of twenty erotic tales is sure to titillate, intrigue and inspire. Editor of several successful erotica anthologies, Hanne Blank knows good sex, and this, her first book-length solo offering, demonstrates her considerable talents as a creator of erotic fiction. Blank's tantalizing descriptions, smart writing, and fantastic imagination are sure to hit their mark. Unruly Appetites draws readers in immediately with the most scintillating, intimate details of its characters’ unrestrained encounters. One story describes a chance meeting on the road where "maybe turns to yes without ceremony, without fuss." Readers may find themselves both shocked and enthralled by the human-feline encounter described in "The Princess and the Tiger," or lost in possibilities from the graphic memories of a foursome aroused by steamy Polaroids. Or intrigued by the adventures of pearls-from-Tiffany Katie with the nipple-less bra under her Chanel suit, or a young virgin's deflowering in Europe: "I wonder, does that make me a tramp, not knowing the last name of the man who took my virginity?". The myriad fantasies, perspectives, dreams, realities, groupings, shapes and ages presented here offer almost limitless variety.
