“Sex publishing has always been a battleground. On the one hand there were men, mentally and physically hardwired to respond to erotic images. On the other hand, other men, determined to deprive the first group of what they naturally desired. The first two volumes tracing the history of men’s magazines are about the struggle between lust and taboo, beginning with the first bare French breasts in 1880 and ending with bare American breasts in 1958.” (from author’s introduction to Volume 1)
