Studies in the Psychology of Sex, Volume 2, is the second of six volumes by English physician Havelock Ellis. First published in 1900, this volume explores what used to be called 'sexual inversion', but which is now known as homosexuality. Ellis worked with English poet John Addington Symonds on this volume - Symonds himself being a homosexual (albeit a secret one because of the age he lived in). With various case studies, the book describes the theories and prevalence of sexual inversion in men and women including the history of homosexuality in the Greeks, the tribes of America, and Rome, as well as homosexuality among animals. When it was first published it was banned in England. Chapters include: The study of sexual inversion; sexual inversion in men; sexual inversion in women; the nature of sexual inversion; and, the theory of sexual inversion.
