Ethnological and cultural studies of the sex life in England
illustrated, as revealed in its erotic and obscene literature and art; with nine private cabinets of illustrations by the greatest English masters of erotic art
Dr Bloch is perfectly justified in taking the standpoint that the vices and virtues of a people are best to be seen in their literary productions.
He presents vividly and informatively those specific English — that is, Anglo-Saxon — sex practices that can be found in no other erotic literature in such detail and complexity. This is especially true of flagellation and defloration, which are veritable sex manias in England and as such are referred to time and time again in erotic and pornographic works. Many important side-lights thus illuminate the aetiology and nosology of sex perversions and perversities .
No less fascinating are the chapters on the erotic art of the English in which we see graphically, and thus more clearly, portrayed all the erotic relations of a country that is notorious for its grossness and coarseness of expression . . .
We can safely recommend this latest study by Dr Bloch to our colleagues with the assurance that they will find it highly interesting as well as informative. Dr J. Pagel, Professor of Pathology, in the Deutschen Aerztezeitung: Dr Bloch gained a well-deserved continental reputation with his "epoch-making double-master- piece," the 120 Days of Sodom.
His latest work on sex life in England is certain to spread his literary fame to all quarters of the civilized world. Dr. Bloch has utilized an ingenious method in alloying the most famous English eroticism and pornographists to present their own analyses of the sex life of the English people. This makes fascinating reading and Dr Bloch has cleverly connected the absorbing chapters of his work with descriptive excurses that present an authoritative and well-rounded panorama of the erotic nature of the English race
