    Having greatly enjoyed The Loser Letters by Mary Eberstadt I looked forward to her new book Adam and Eve After the Pill: Paradoxes of the Sexual Revolution[​IMG]. Talk about a timely subject considering the HHS mandate.

    This book does not just cover the effects of contraception on the culture, but also related problems such as pornography and what she calls Toxic U. She draws out many very interesting paradoxes concerning the so-called sexual revolution. The sexual revolution is a real revolution in that it revolved around a individualistic and selfish view of self and maximizing pleasure. While some of those paradoxes are ones that have been noted before she also brings out some new insights and some rather surprising one. The chapter on how sex and food were once regarded and their switch places attitude-wise is very interesting especially how the moral weight of what food you eat has increased while the moral weight of casual sex has decreased.
