This "metropolis of vice" is given a vivid historical rendering. From the 1920s to the late 1930s, the city was a cauldron of debauchery and creativity, giving rise to the first institute devoted to the study of sex. With the destruction of the old political order, Berlin entered an era of chaos and hedonism. The country's bohemian writers, architects and political agitators gravitated towards Berlin's freewheeling culture. A legion of lesbians cultivated their own society as the city encouraged its denizens to play out their every whim. Meanwhile, a Nazi upsurge in the countryside foreshadows an end to the perpetual party.
