"The book is in 2 parts. The first part looks at the historical aspect of Blacks and sexuality. It begins in Africa and the sexuality among various tribes. It moves along into American slavery and the sexuality of the slaves and how sex was used against them. It then moves into Reconstruction and into the 20th century and how relationships among Blacks were influenced by the history. This section shows how the relationships between Black men and women were damaged by societal laws that were created to tear apart the Black family unit.

The second part of the book looks at other sexual and relationship issues for Blacks in America. Some of the topics include Black skin color (light vs. dark), Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Blacks, Black gays, lesbians and Homophobia, Black sexual relationships and Black sexual stereotypes and their effect on Black sexuality."
