In 2009 kwam het boek ‘ABC van Perversies‘ van Gert Hekma uit. Nu verschijnt het als E-book in het Engels. Daarom is de rest van deze tekst in het Engels. The box office success of the erotic film 50 Shades of Grey reveals the public’s obsession with deviant sexual behavior. The plot revolves around the character of Anastasia, an inexperienced young woman who is tied up and taught the ways of BDSM by Christian Grey. When it comes to kink, there’s a whole big world out there and bondage is just the beginning. Curious? With the book ABC of Perversions, that world is now at your fingertips (bron: persbericht).
In partnership with Amsterdam-based publishing house SpeakEasy, courageous gender and sexuality lecturer Gert Hekma is releasing an English version of his book ABC of Perversions. Promoting open-minded sexual morality and inspiring passionate debate in the Netherlands, the book is subtitled ‘World’s most erotic encyclopedia’. In alphabetical order, the author describes a broad range of perverse sexual fantasies and places them in a context of acceptance and civil rights. Ranging from foot sex and bondage to controversial interests such as pedosexuality and bestiality, the volume demonstrates how almost everyone can relate to at least one perversion.
Without judgment or condemnation, Hekma shows how perversions are an inherent part of the human experience. The book is a must-read for everyone who wonders whether his or her fantasies are absurd or perverse, or who wants to do or dream something different for a change. It’s also an eye-opener, revealing rare and obscure fantasies the reader is unlikely to have previously encountered. Drawing from the work of intellectuals and writers such as the Marquis de Sade, Reve, Krafft-Ebing and Kinsey, Hekma reviews all possible perversions and shows that perversion is a common human phenomenon.
