In this book, the author maintains that during the s there were four separate streams of culture influencing sexual viewpoints in the United States. One of these was traditional sexual lore and humor, which frankly celebrated desire; another was Puritan-based Christianity, which tried to still any discussion of sex; yet another was a kind of male sporting viewpoint, which advocated sexual adventure without negative consequence; the last was that of social reformers who advocated free love.
Booklist contributor Donna Seaman praised Rereading Sex as "an intricate tapestry of nineteenth-century American sexual culture. In addition to writing important books about American culture, Horowitz has also served in an editorial capacity.
With Kathy Peiss, she edited a series of letters between a white woman and a black man who were lovers in Massachusetts at the beginning of the twentieth century.
