Love and Death: A Study in Censorship is a literary study by Gershon Legman, an attack on sexual censorship first published in New York by Breaking Point in 1949.

Legman's demonstrates how in early 20th century culture murder, sex-hatred and sadism is more acceptable than sex. It's a piece of pamphleteering, written in the author's distinctively aggressive style and displaying the erudition for which he is so well known. His thesis was very much in tune with the later "make love not war" discourse.
