    Originally published in German titled Zeig Mal!, this is a later printing of the English edition. 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”.

    Cover price marked out. Some small rubs and chips to wrappers. Minor soiling and foxing. Previous owner’s name. Good Condition.
