The editors of Sex Marchers, like so many of todays more perceptive and outspoken writers, are just a couple of kids. When they finished their collaboration on the manuscript, Jeff Poland was 24.

When they finished their collaboration on the manuscript, Jeff Poland was 24. Sam Sloan is two years his junior. But such kids!

Jeff is an ordained minister of the NeoAmerican Church, while Sam is a criminologist and tournament chess player who won the Southern California Amateur Championship in 1963. Fortunately, he has since found other uses for his time, or Jeff might have had to write this book alone. The Reverend Jefferson F. Poland (hell be glad to tell you what the F stands for) majored in sociology. He is an activist in the civil rights struggle and has applied Gandhis doctrine of non-violent direct action to securing Negro voter registration in Louisiana as well as to campaigning for nudist beaches in California.

It was his friendship with Prof. Leo Koch which awakened his interest in the sexual freedom movement - together they founded the New York City League for Sexual Freedom in 1963-and it is the liberation of human sexuality which has been his major concern since that time. Born in Virginia, Sam Sloan attended the University of California at Berkeley. A math major who later switched to criminology, he earned part of his college expenses by working as a roulette croupier in Reno. Even today he relies occasionally on his poker-playing skills to ensure a full stomach and a warm bed.

But in 1966-67 he was leader of the Campus Sexual Rights Forum, and it was in that capacity that he met Jeff Poland and gathered the material which lends such a realistic touch to his chapters in this book. Originally published in 1968, it is now reprinted in 2006. This book waswritten as the Bible of the sex revolution of the 1960s.

It teaches how to organize demonstrations for sex and how to organize nude parties and sex orgies. Basically, it tells How To Do It. This must be regarded nowadays as a period or historical piece of Americana. History books will tell you that the Sex Revolution of the 1960s started at the University of California at Berkeley.

This 1968 book was by the two leading student agitators of that time. Some of the issues were the struggle to get the university hospital to issue birth control pills, which were still hard to obtain without a prescription from a medical doctor. It was the struggle by the students against the censorship, anti-abortion and sex discrimination laws of that time that finally led to victory. So many of the battles have long since been won that it is hard to imagine what it was like then.

While waging their political battles against the establishment authorities, the students took time off to organize sex orgies as well, putting their theories into practice. The chapter entitled Making the League Sexual provides detailed encounters of nude parties and sex orgies off the Berkeley Campus. Sex Marchers was originally published in 1968 by Ed Lange of Elysium, a nudist colony organization headquartered in Topanga in the hills above Los Angeles. It is reprinted in 2006 by Ishi Press International.
