2 Cf. Honoré T., Sex Law (Duckworth), 1978, Ch. 1.

3 Cf. the recent British decision that a man cannot be convicted of rape if he believes, however unreasonably, that the woman consents (Morgan v. DPP, 1976).

4 One of the classic papers is Koedt A., ‘The Myth of the Vaginal Orgasm’ (1970) reprinted in Radical Feminism, Koedt A., Levine E. and Rapone A. (eds) (Quadrangle), 1973. Cf. also Moulton J., ‘Sex and Reference’ in Philosophy and Sex, Elliston F. A. and Baker R. (eds) (Prometheus), 1975.

5 See e.g. Liberalism and Social Action (1935) (Capricorn), 1963.

6 By contrast, Engels, in Origins of the Family, Private Property and the State (1884) (Lawrence and Wishart), 1972, postulated a sexual division of labour before the development of capitalism and the patrilineal family.

7 Cf. Baker R., ‘“Pricks” and “Chicks”’ in Philosophy and Sex, Elliston F. A., and Baker R. (eds) (Prometheus), 1975.
