Sex & Punishment review by


“This is an excellently researched, almost scholarly book that draws on a wide range of sources from Herodotus to St Augustine (who f***ed the living daylights out of half of Carthage and Milan before declaring celibacy the way to go when he could no longer get it up) and on to Pepys and Foucault. All are properly credited. By backing up his material and selecting sources wisely, Berkowitz has achieved a perfect balance between case study and analysis, and between narrative and reflection.” —
