Natural Desire in Healthy Women
Amber Haldane, doughty campaigner for contraceptive rights, wishes to free the masses from the chains of sexual repression and nasty-mindedness. As she gathers contributions for her new periodical, Birth Control Monthly, she encounters the luminaries of the age: H.G. Wells, preoccupied by the appearance of mysterious green spheres in his apple trees; T.S. Eliot, eager to pick her brains about glandular secretions; and Wilhelm Reich, whose theory of orgastic potency is fundamentally Misleading, Damaging and Wrong. Dexter's outrageous new comedy of manners will be relished by all devotees of sexual history and politics.
