Satyricon USA is a groundbreaking tour of America's sexual landscape. Like her model from the ancient world, Petronius, Eurydice is a firsthand witness to the chaos of human sexuality, now more kinky, confused, and transgressive than ever before. A rare combination of erudite and hip, Eurydice transports us to the realms of dungeons and cross-dressing conferences, bloodletting clubs, and supersized strip emporiums, along the way introducing a fascinating and bizarre cast of characters. We learn that, in fact, her subjects are not the "fringe" of society, they are well-educated middle to upper class professional Americans.

Drawing on hundreds of interviews, Eurydice probes these people who lead dual lives to answer questions like: Why is our society simultaneously obsessed with and afraid of sex? How can this widespread sexual eccentricity coexist with the recent puritanical hysteria about sexual harassment and sex in the military? Are we today more liberated or actually more confined than in the past?

A unique blend of reportage, memoir, extensive research, and incisive analysis, Satyricon USA is a compelling portrait of a nation in the midst of redefining its sexual life.
