Sex and the Constitution is an enthralling history of the legal and political impact of sexual social values. It explores obscenity, religion, and the introduction of Christianity, the development and legality of abortion and contraception, and changing legislation and views on sexuality from ancient Rome to the formation of modern America. Stone dissects the false history of America as a Christian nation with Puritan sexual values and the various waves of evangelism that have lodged this myth in our collective cultural consciousness, as well as its effect on our sense of morality generally, historically, and in civil rights contexts.
