Show Me! A Picture Book of Sex for Children and Parents
34cm x 24cm. 176 pages, black and white photographs. Black cloth, silver lettering, no jacket.
Originally published in German titled Zeig Mal!, this is the first edition in English. Show Me! is a graphic sex education book written in a frank style to encourage teaching “children to grow up proud and unashamed of their bodies and sexuality.” The publisher was accused of obscenity, with prosecutors arguing the book was child pornography. In all of the original cases judges ruled the book was not obscene, though the book continued to feature in US court cases relating to obscenity, child pornography, and the First Amendment, and was eventually pulled from shelves by the publisher “stating that though they believed Show Me! was not pornographic, they could no longer afford the legal expenses to defend it”.
Minor wear to cloth and corners. A few grubby finger prints in places throughout. Very Good Condition.
