Sex in science fiction.

Modern science fiction frequently involves themes of sex, gender and sexuality. This was not always so. During the 1930s and 40s “golden age” of science fiction sex was rarely if ever even mentioned, although there was certainly no lack of innuendo and suggestion. The idea, however, that strong female characters played little or no role in the pulps of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, is wrong.
