    One thought on “The Pleasure Principle: Sex, Backlash, and the Struggle for Gay Freedom”

    1. Not the most relevant piece for today as it was a bit a product of its time I still enjoyed the discussion of the ghetto as an erogenous zone of the city I also appreciated the interrogation of beat aesthetics under the queer aegis Unfortunately it took 150 pages for me to even feel like I was learning something new, but this is the nature of the genre I also wonder in the case of this work who was the intended audience An educated gay readership would probably know all of this.

    2. Despite some outdated references to the military and marriage, this book remains frighteningly relevant in the age of Donald the killer clown Trump
