About this product
- DescriptionThe odd reader (here in England odd means occasional) may be interested in how a book comes about. Members of the SIECUS Board of Directors were planning a Festschrift and dinner for Mary Calderone on the occasion of her 75th birthday. One planning idea was to have a booklet, filled with brief essays from prominent sex educators, distributed between the roast beef and the ice cream. My reaction was that such souvenirs find their burial place in the same dusty drawer as the program from the high school prom and ticket stubs from South Pacific. I suggested a more lasting, ticeable monument, a proper (as the English say) book which would draw contributions from both SIECUS and n-SIECUS scholars. 1 was too clever to be trapped as editor (in a 1974 preface, I had written I swore 1 wouldn't edit ather book ). And so I seduced Lorna Brown (into being editor). I contacted a few potential con- tributors, suggested a few others, convinced Leonard Pace at Plenum Press that this was a worthwhile venture, and left the country. To my amaze- ment, six months after settling in Cambridge, England, the rough draft of the book arrived along with areminder from Lorna that during the se- duction I had promised to write an Introduction.
