Synopsis

The Right has politicized private life, expanding the zone of public sexuality. This guarantees policies that will worsen social problems and increase personal anxiety, providing proof that sexuality is fundamentally negative--so citizens demand more sex-negative policies. With examples ripped from today's headlines, with brutal honesty and a wicked sense of humor, Marty Klein names names, challenges political hypocrisy, and shows the financial connections between government and conservative religious groups that are systematically taking away your rights. And, in the process, changing American society--forever. In our free society, people have the right to choose how they live their lives.-- President George Bush, June 3, 2006So why does our government want to censor what you read, hear, and see, try to limit your access to contraception, attempt to legislate good moral values, and try to brainwash your kids about abstinence? These are the kinds of questions Dr. Marty Klein asks--and answers--in his new book, "America's War on Sex." With hundreds of examples ripped from today's headlines, he names names, challenges political hypocrisy, and shows the financial connections between government and conservative religious groups that are systematically taking away your rights. Dr. Klein isn't shy about it. He demands to know--as you should demand to know--answers to difficult questions, such as: If 50 million Americans consume pornography, why does the government dare to regulate it without consulting any consumers? Why do Congressmen listen to victims of porn but not healthy adults who use porn? Now that abstinence-only sex education has been proven a failure, why does the government still give it $200 million each year? And how can most of that money go to faith-based groups who tell your kids how God feels about their sexual choices? Why do hundreds of American communities feel they have the right to eliminate legal adult entertainment, claiming we're not that kind of city? Why do family courts have the right to judge the private sexual habits of each parent when making custody decisions? How can licensed pharmacists and physicians claim they have the right to deny you legal medical care if it violates their conscience? Our glorious Constitution guarantees us the widest range of rights civilization has ever seen. Why are those rights systematically undermined and revoked when it comes to sexual expression? Is there a conspiracy to deny us our sexual rights? No, says Marty Klein: It's worse than a conspiracy. It's a war. They're very open about it--it's a War on Sex. It's a war that threatens the very fabric of our secular democracy. The American Taliban, our own sexual jihadists, want to replace our government with laws based on the Bible, creating a country in which normal sex is narrowly defined and no one has the right to alternative sexual information, health care, or personal expression. America is fighting a war on terror to prevent the overthrow of our way of life by fanatics who want to base all law on their strict religious beliefs. It is completely unacceptable that a group of conservative Americans is trying to accomplish the same thing right here.
