Some books piss me off at first glance. Double deviates? Really? Why? As compared to the repressed freaks who fuck in the exact same position every time they have sex? Eww! Give me deviation or give me complete boredom!

The only really interesting aspect is that they group our alphabet soups (LGBTQ/BDSM) together. I'm all about making common cause but hell if I accept this author's definitions.

Gloria, this book was written in 1964 and is out of print (though not beyond copyright). Justifiably so.

Anyone finding it in a local library would not be condemned by me if they burned it on the spot, though they would probably get arrested. ;-)

You must have quite a library.

Hey, the book is calling me a king, that's pretty awesome surely?

"Two Sexes In One Body"--I have always had a perverse love for the transgenderistic construction of bisexual identity, co-relative to Freud's "psychical hermaphroditism."

Rather than making me a freak, this should make me an enhanced human being--doncha think?--with a greater capacity to know and love the whole human race. Alas, I can neither live up to the ultra-freakishness my bi-stereotype casts for me, nor the vividly suggested potential for sexual/emotional/spiritual nirvana.

I'm just me, trying to work out my relationships with men, with women, with transpeople, as they come along in my life. Assigning "ultimate deviant" status to bisexuals/pansexuals/queers is actually amusing to me, since I've lived long enough to become much more confident and secure in my sexuality/identity. Heterosexuals certainly let their imaginations run wild, don't they?

LOL. The 75 cents list price on the cover was the tip off for me as to the 50 year old age of this piece of literature.

This is actually not the worst piece of quackery I've seen. Six months ago I read an odious pseudo-medical article written by a right-winger linking bisexuality to schizophrenia. This work has all the humorous salacious of other pulp tracts of the same ilk, offering steamy prognosis on "the Third Sex" for prurient heterosexual delectation.
