One of the ongoing complaints I see amongst my readers and in society in general is sex. It’s led men to drink, drugs and dodgy sub-reddits.

The madonna/whore dichotomy was well and truly in place early on.In the Talmud, Adam’s first wife Lilith is expelled from Eden for trying to take the superior role in sex – riding her husband rather than laying back and thinking of Babylon; after her expulsion she goes on to lay with the wild beasts of the desert and becomes the mother of demons.Eve’s sin – giving in to temptation – is the burden of gender.This idea would go on to shape not just the perception of women, but the understanding of human sexuality.
