The Petting Generation
Steiner
1968

This is what I like to call “nonfiction erotica.” I am not sure that is really a thing, but I am running into enough examples to make me think so.  This is probably the best example of true stories or case studies that detail (and I mean DETAIL) the finer nuances of making out. Our author has a few other titles that you probably won’t want to miss, such as:  Sex Behavior of the Homosexual, Sex Behavior of the Lesbian, and last, but not least, Man to Man: A Report on Homosexuality.

I couldn’t find any credentials for our author, so maybe this is also self-reported “data.” I am not sure that today’s audience would even know what petting and necking entail. Remember, I am rather old and those terms weren’t used in my formative years. (Get off my lawn!)

Obviously this needs updating and some solid first hand accounts. Anyone volunteering?
