Does " brave enough to crack the binding" mean "brave enough to open the book"?
I confessed that the connection to innocence never occurred to me. “Well, that says a lot about you, actually,” he joked. At least, I assume he was joking. I mean, I like a nice wool jacket, but that's as far as it goes.
Bering was kind enough to dedicate Perv to me. And to you. And, well, to any reader brave enough to crack the binding. (Still talking about the book here.) The dedication reads, “For you, you pervert, you.” That notion would have been even more accurate in 1948, when Alfred Kinsey published Sexual Behavior in the Human Male. In Perv, Bering notes that Kinsey's research revealed that “75 percent of adult American males were technically ‘sex deviants’ according to the mental health criteria at the time.”
