I'd never heard of Chris Donaghue until he was interviewed on a podcast, discussing this book, which I've now listened to three times and read once in print. He extends many critiques of marriage and heteronormativity which were made in the 1970's, but with modern theory and the inside experience of a humane therapist who has been backstage in the sausage factory of what passes for sexual "expertise" among front-line counselors.
His belief in the positive value of sexuality and the right of all people to sexual fulfillment has me thinking in exciting new ways that make me more accepting of others. All others. A thought-provoking read worth thinking on for months to come.

I'm pretty widely read in gender studies and sexuality, so I have become pretty familiar with the usual topics discussed and arguments presented. I did not think I could be surprised. But I was wrong. This book has blown my ideas and categories completely away. No "isms" or "ologies" are left untouched or even standing by the end. I am certain that upon reflection and study I'll find things to take issue with but right now I am just enjoying the feeling of having the back of my head blown off.
