"Our attitudes toward sex and family-life are closely bound up with complexities of emotional reaction that have been nurtured since childhood. We have been forced to view sex in a certain fashion, and sex relations have taken on certain forms that are often justified without the least consideration of historical advance or scientific conclusions. From those things that have been touched by a myriad associations, inwrapt in the personality, as it were, by experiences too numerous to recall, it is most difficult to escape. As a result, we can very easily understand the capacity of men and women to dichotomize their approach to reality, focusing a radical lens upon one phase, and a conservative upon another. It is for this reason that many radicals are conservative in sex. All of us want life to move in sharp, simplified patterns, but it does not. The world is on the threshold of revolutionary change.

The disintegration of the family, and the decay of the marital institution of the modern world, accompanied by the rise and revolt of youth, are revolutionary developments in our civilization. This disintegration and decay, however, as it is part of the purpose of this book to illustrate, are only a phase of a more fundamental revolution that is already tearing at the roots of our social and economic life. There is no endeavor in this book to exaggerate the importance of sex in social life. There is an endeavor, however, to attack the stupid silences that have obscured and distorted its consideration in the past. The revolution in morals which has occurred in our age is the harbinger of a revolution in social life which is hastening upon us.
