The notion that Shakespeare disguised a large volume of sexual references in his plays is intriguing, to a point. The first few chapters explains the author's view that much of the language used by Shakespeare referred to crude sex and that the audiences of that time recognized the puns and references. I guess it makes sense, but all of the examples in the later chapters get boring. I'll see if I feel differently the next time I go to a Shakespeare play.
