    Sixties List Members: I have taught a course on the 1960s at Indiana
    State University called "The Sixties: Counterculture and Protest" for
    more than six years. The one area I have trouble finding good readings
    (either primary or secondary) is the sexual revolution. By sexual
    revolution I don't just mean hippies but the change in mores in this era
    from miniskirts and Playboy to Masters and Johnson and the singles and
    disco scene. I have used selections from Stephanie Coontz's book "The
    Way We Never Were" with some success but am stumped for other reading
    suitable for undergraduates in a general education class. I am also
    wondering if there is a broader interpretive work I can use to help
    conceptualize the sexual revolution.

    Does anyone out there have suggestions?
