"Klein's careful work torpedoing the erotophobic war against sex had to be done, and he did it well."
Journal of Sex Research
"The book is a great resource for anyone trying to come to grips with society's turmoil over sexuality as well as for anyone interested in understanding their own sexuality in a social and political context. If knowledge is power, readers will feel quite empowered after reading Klein's book."
"Although Klein does not provide an easy fix to the vexing problems posed by erotophobes, crusaders, the Christian-American Taliban, or religious terrorists, terms not guaranteed to assuage the opposition, he does offer sufficient examples of the war on our fundamental liberties to energize even the most laid-back of his readers. This book will infuriate people on both ends of the political spectrum, if for different reasons. That is a rare accomplishment, and one that deserves to be experienced. If America's War on Sex helps to begin to redress the balance between individual freedom of expression and the society's responsibility to protect the well-being of its citizenry, it will have made a major contribution to life in this land of the free."
"Adding to his already impressive roster of works on human sexuality, renowned author, sex educator, and therapist Marty Klein has surpassed all previous efforts with this incisive exploration of the sexual battleground that our country has become."
The Gay & Lesbian Review
"Marty Klein shows exactly how abstinence-only sex education programs are hurting American kids. This great new book is a must read for everyone who cares about healthy sexuality." (Sue Johanson, Host of Talk Sex with Sue Johanson)
