Books on Sex Frequently the Targets of Book Banning
Not surprisingly, 3 of the world’s most banned books deal specifically with sex. Here’s a brief description of them:
In “Daddy’s Roommate,” by Michael Wilhoite, A young boy describes his father’s relationship with his roommate, Frank (they “live together, work together, eat together, sleep together . . .”), and his own relationship with these men–shopping, gardening, and enjoying the zoo, beach, movies, etc. He believes that “being gay is just one more kind of love. And love is the best kind of happiness.’”
“Sex” by Madonna contains a lot of provocative photos and basically covers every sexual fantasy that one might have. activities include sex with animals, sadomasochism and “inter-generational love affairs” such as the relationship between an 11-year-old boy and a 21-year-old man.
Easily the most controversial book on the list is “The New Joy of Gay Sex.” While I won’t ask for it or any other book to be banned, I would never own it. It discusses activities such as sex with animals, sadomasochism and “inter-generational love affairs” such as the relationship between an 11-year-old boy and a 21-year-old man. These are disturbing ideas that I will protest by not supporting the author with my dollars.
Which is probably how most book-protests should be handled.
