An aside here and there in books on love, marriage, and sexuality is discussion of the philosophical scrutiny lovemaking has received, says Sevenant (whose academic affiliation is not stated, but she has written at least 10 books in Dutch, Italian, and French). In developing a philosophy of sex, she refers to the history of (western) philosophy in related areas and then explores the ways in which people relate to lovemaking, how they experience their sexual relations, how they think and feel about those experiences, and how they act in response to the experiences, thoughts, and feelings. The work is not indexed.
