Just Sex chronicles the movement to bring an end to all forms of sexual violence on campus and gives voice not only to rape victims but also to reformed rape perpetrators, who describe the twisted logic through which rape becomes "acceptable" to young males and their peers. Just Sex also gathers testimonials about homosexual rape, minorities and sexual violence, and presents the most complete collection of essays and primary documents on a movement that has altered the sexual landscape of our campuses and communities forever.
