Voluptuous Panic: The Erotic World of Weimar Berlin

Voluptuous Panic: The Erotic World of Weimar Berlin Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Between 1921 and 1933, Berlin developed a reputation for debauchery unrivaled by any city before or since. Unlike European capitals such as Paris, Barcelona, and Amsterdam, where brothel districts were extensive but discreet, in Berlin sexual tourism was a primary industry. On any given evening, over 600 establishments, from massage parlors to sex clubs to cabarets to private torture dungeons, promised unique sights and pleasures. Using tourist guidebooks that appeared before the Nazi period, historical memoirs, interviews and more than 400 specialized journals and books, Mel Gordon has put together a controversial exploration of Berlin's erotic culture during the interwar years.

The book is divided into chapters on Berlin?s collapse and World War One, Prostitution, Girl Culture, Gay Life, Lesbianism, Transvestism, Nudism, Sexology, Sexual Perversion, Criminal Life, the Nazi destruction of the city?s demimonde, and a Directory of 50 Berlin Night Spots prior to the dreaded arrival of the Nazis.
