Intended as a “pseudo dissertation” on differences in sexual cultures, the author uses idiosyncratic research to make a case for the necessity of sexual revolution and education in his native country. A native of Cameroon, West Africa, author Boniface Wewe graduated with a Master’s Degree in library science from the University of Pittsburgh. He became interested in the sexual openness he saw in the West as compared to the sexual conservativism he knew from Africa. The arranged marriages where brides are purchased with goats and palm wine in Africa contrasted with American brides, who are the product of the sexual revolution, caused Wewe to question some of his native country’s social problems. The author desires to be recognized as a Professor of Sexology with this manuscript.

Most of the book consists of Wewe’s recollections of conversations he had in Africa, Europe and America with anyone willing to answer questions regarding their sexual attitudes and practices. Sexual misinformation such as black men having large penises, shoe size correlating to penis size, and aphrodisiacs like alcohol and bitter kola, are debunked.

There are references to published “research” conducted by magazines including Vibe in the book, along with song lyrics and television sexual innuendo. The author also addresses issues such as pubic hair, female genital mutilation, sexual positions, and sexual turn-ons and turn-offs. There is also a how-to chapter on cunnilingus.

Unfortunately, the book is not succinct enough to be considered an academic work, nor comprehendible enough for an enjoyable read. Many of the words and expressions may be unfamiliar to Westerners and because the underlying theme of the book has a tendency to wander, the work required for comprehension may not be worthwhile to the average reader. The book may have value as a reference for someone wishing to do serious academic research into African sexual/mating behaviors.
