 Criticism and support
Reviewing Corvino's Same Sex in the Times Literary Supplement, conservative Nigel Ashford commented that "the tone of the book—of reason and logic, respect for opponents and willingness to engage in intellectual combat—is set by Corvino himself in his examination of the case against homosexuality, and by the inclusion of a rebuttal of his own arguments."
Among the other publications which reviewed Corvino's Same Sex is Washington Post Book World.
