Then and Now: The Triple X Edition | National Coalition Against Censorship | Sex History | Scoop.it

Sex. It’s impure, shameful, dirty, immoral, and… harmful?

Sex and Civil Liberties in the United States | Sex History | Scoop.it

A timeline history of sex and civil liberties in the United States.

 

As Spanish, French, Dutch, and English colonists began to settle North America during the 17th century, they brought with them a catalog of highly specific laws proscribing various sexual acts. The purpose of all of these laws was to enforce monogamous, same-race, heterosexual marriage as a mandatory institution, and to punish any and all sexual activity outside of that institution. Ever since then, laws restricting the civil liberties of sex have followed more or less the same old trajectory.
