"…a queer theory paean to masturbation… Joycelyn ELders would approve." -- OUT
"Obviously auteroticism deserves to finally be seriously examined in today's climate of sex-related danger, and that end is accomplished very well in this text." -- Gay Chicago Magazine
"The first anthology…that deals extensively with masturbation, Solitary Pleasures keeps Routledge on the publishing cutting edge of contemporary avant garde social and cultural theory." -- The San Diego Review
