This paper shows that as depicted in fifteen marriage manuals marital sex has a definite division of labor. The male's sexual role is a complex and multidimensional one, while the role of the woman is characterized as a relatively minor one. The manuals portray the relationship between the two roles as resting on a rational reciprocity.
