"In reminding us of many distinct and fascinating earlier ways of thinking about and understanding sex and sexual behaviours, Phillips and Reay rightly insist that heterosexuality is not only not a given but also has a history."
Times Higher Education
"Finally, a book on the history of sex that traverses the period boundary commonly erected between medieval and early modern. Deftly weaving together sources across a longue durée, this lucid survey is packed with examples that demonstrate the potential mismatch between modern sexual categories and premodern experience."
Robert Mills, King's College London
"A generation of scholars have journeyed from a history of sexual behaviour to a history of sexuality and in the process have given us a new vocabulary with which to interrogate our own world. Sex before Sexuality lays out a clear map of the complex intellectual landscape, and will be essential reading for students and scholars."
Tim Hitchcock, University of Hertfordshire
"The authors demonstrate poignantly how to think sex historically in a scintillating book that synthesizes a vast scholarly landscape on premodern sexualities in the West."
Helmut Puff, University of Michigan
