"Masters and Johnson's basic groundwork in sex physiology will now make it possible for medicine to assume a rsponsibility it has neglected far too long - that of educating its own. Through the authors' efforts, those responsible for sex education finally have before them clinical facts about one of the more vital aspects of human existence. [This volume] is primarily concerned with the sexual response cycles of men and women between the ages of 21 and 50, with emphasis on similarities rather than differences in their sexual response patterns."--Excerpt from the Publisher's Description.

Un excitante retrato del ginecólogo William Masters y la sexóloga Virginia Johnson, la pareja que cambió la forma en que todos pensamos, hablamos y participamos del sexo. Las investigaciones del ginecólogo William Masters y la sexóloga Virginia Johnson supusieron toda una revolución en la década de los 60. A lo largo de más de cuarenta años, a través de la observación directa de miles de encuentros sexuales entre cientos de hombres y mujeres, analizaron y explicaron temas hasta entonces tabú como los secretos del orgasmo, la homosexualidad, la satisfacción emocional o la disfunción. Thomas Maier ofrece una mirada sin precedentes sobre la pareja que cambió la forma en que todos pensamos, hablamos y participamos del sexo. Reseñas: «Un relato perspicaz y bien escrito sobre Masters y Johnson, que, en un sentido clínico, probablemente sabían más sobre el sexo y el amor conyugal que cualquier otra pareja en Estados Unidos.» Gay Talese «Narrada con paciencia y esmero... Maier escribe bien, y con humor.» New York Times «Una mirada, maravillosamente escrita y totalmente absorbente, a una pareja increíble.» Booklist «El galardonado biógrafo Maier... ofrece el primer examen en profundidad de la compleja pareja que ayudó a revolucionar el estudio de la respuesta sexual humana.» Library Journal «La reveladora biografía de Maier se adentra en la vida de la pareja que inició la revolución sexual.» Discover «Absorbente. Masters of sex es un libro de lectura obligada para aquellos que quieran conocer los embriagadores comienzos de la revolución sexual.» The American Prospect «Puede que debido a su tórrido tema, Masters of sex [...] pueda impactar a algunos lectores por resultar extraordinariamente gráfico tratándose de una biografía, pero este perturbador relato de sexo y ciencia en la teoría y la práctica es en realidad más aleccionador que excitante O, The Oprah Magazine

Originally published in 1953, the material presented in Sexual Behavior in the Human Female was derived from personal interviews with nearly 6,000 women; from studies in sexual anatomy, physiology, psychology, and endocrinology. The study revealed the incidence and frequency with which women participate in various types of sexual activity and how such factors as age, decade of birth, and religious adherence are reflected in patterns of sexual behavior. The authors make comparisons of female and male sexual activities and investigate the factors which account for the similarities and differences between female and male patterns of behavior and provide some measure of the social significance of the various types of sexual behavior.

Excerpt: Sexual arousal (also sexual excitement) is the arousal of sexual desire, during or in anticipation of sexual activity. A number of physiological responses occur in the body and mind as preparation for sex and continue during it. Genital responses are not the only changes, but noticeable and necessary for consensual and comfortable intercourse. Male arousal will lead to an erection and in female arousal, the body's response is engorged sexual tissues such as nipples, vulva, clitoris, vaginal walls and vaginal lubrication. Mental stimuli and physical stimuli such as touch, and the internal fluctuation of hormones, can influence sexual arousal. Sexual arousal has several stages and may not lead to any actual sexual activity, beyond a mental arousal and the physiological changes that accompany it. Given sufficient stimulation, sexual arousal in humans reaches its climax during an orgasm. It may also be pursued for its own sake, even in the absence of an orgasm. There are several informalities, terms and phrases to describe sexual arousal including horny, turned on, randy, steamy, and lustful. Things that precipitate human sexual arousal are called erotic stimuli, colloquially known as turn-ons. Depending on the situation, a person can be sexually aroused by a variety of factors, both physical and mental. A person may be sexually aroused by another person or by particular aspects of that person, or by a non-human object. The welcome physical stimulation of an erogenous zone or acts of foreplay can result in arousal, especially...

This fabulous anthology is sure to be a core text for history of medicine and social science classes in colleges across the country. In order to demonstrate how medical research has influenced Western cultural perspectives, the editors have collected original works from 61 different authors around nine major themes (among them "Anatomy and Destiny," "Psyche and Soma," and "The Construction of Pain, Suffering, and Death"). The authors range from Aristotle, the Bible, and Louis Pasteur, to Masters and Johnson, Ernest Hemingway, and Simone de Beauvoir. The primary sources selected to illustrate the themes are well chosen and contrast with each other nicely. However, the brief background material for the selections center around the authors and offer little or no discussion about the selections' relevance to the topics at hand. This book would be best read in a class or group where the texts' meaning in relation to each other can be discussed, but the book can stand alone if the reader is prepared to do some critical thinking.
