Damon, Gene. "Sinful Desires." Ladder, vol. 4, no. 7, April 1960, p. 17-18.
This is a very strange little book. On one page it blasts away at lesbianism and homosexuality and on the next gets in a few scientific remarks on how natural and normal homosexuality really is. Plot line is very familiar. Nice pretty girl married to brute meets seductive babe who looks and acts pretty un-lesbian-like except in quiet corners. Pretty girl falls for lesbian hard and all is joy for a few pages. Along comes romantic male lead – in this case, a delicate little fellow just getting over a romantic attachment to another man (new twist), so of course pretty girl and delicate little fellow fall into one another's “normal” arms and fall in love. They proceed to get real “normal” on the last few pages.
