Some of our society’s most sensitive issues

Jesse Bering‘s new title  Perv: The Sexual Deviant in All of Us, tackles some of our society’s most sensitive issues —rape, fetishes, pedophila, and more —through science and reason.

Bering was inspired to write the book after growing up gay in the 80s in conservative Middle America.  The author sees human sexuality—and sexual deviance—as being a major subject that remains mostly ignored by those who study morality. Quote, “It’s not just our uptight, overly religious society, but academia as a whole that’s been too cowardly to carefully explore some of the most contentious issues in human sexuality.”

We look to books, and the authors who write them to tackle the big issues. For more thought provoking titles, tune into my show The Book Report.
