On Thursday, many loving couples will be saying Happy Valentine's Day! Some will be giving flowers or chocolates or spa visits or home-cooked meals or meals out at fancy restaurants -- all in the spirit of love. And there is probably someone -- maybe just one person -- who will find an academic, feminist take on pornography truly titillating. But in case you're making a swift visit to a bookstore for a last-minute gift, beware: The following books are not recommended as gifts for Valentine's Day.
