The feminist sex wars

The Feminist Sex Wars, Lesbian Sex Wars, or simply the Sex Wars or Porn Wars, refers to the acrimonious debates within the feminist movement and lesbian community in the late 1970s through the 1980s around the issues of pornography, sex work, sadomasochism, gender identity, sex roles, and other sexual issues. The debate pitted anti-pornography feminism against sex-positive feminism, and the feminist movement ended up deeply divided as a result. Some of these arguments were replayed in the larger culture during the 1990s in debates about "sexual correctness". --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feminist_Sex_Wars [Aug 2006]

The Sex War by Sam Merwin, Jr.
This one is actually pretty fun. It's about a conspiracy of genetically superior women who want to take over the world and, once they have the technology to reproduce without them, do away with men entirely. Notice the blood on the lower abdomen of the man in the background. I don't recall any castration in the novel, but the cover's implication is pretty darn clear. This one is a good cheesy read and I recommend it for all fans of pulp. --http://belladonna.org/Gynotopia/gynofiction.html [Dec 2005]
