Overview

In 1966 William H. Masters and Virginia E. Johnson published their landmark study, Human Sexual Response, one of the first books to report scientifically on a subject shrouded in taboo and prudery - a book that changed the way Americans think about sexuality and is often credited with helping to start the sexual revolution because of its bold, careful debunking of myths. Today, almost three decades later, critically important changes have occurred in the social, legal, political, scientific, medical, epidemiological, psychological, emotional, public, and private perspectives on sexuality. In Heterosexuality, the world's foremost trio of sex researchers and therapists - Masters, Johnson, and their longtime colleague, Robert C. Kolodny, M.D. - addresses these changes with a comprehensive, definitive, and up-to-date survey of virtually every aspect of the sexual relations between women and men. Here, for the first time ever, is Masters, Johnson, and Kolodny's practical program of exercises for all those seeking to enhance their responsivity or deal with a sexual problem without the aid of a therapist. Sexuality is the source and arena of some of the deepest joys men and women share, and some of the deepest vulnerabilities. Writing with candor and sensitivity, Masters, Johnson, and Kolodny provide the best, most sensible, and most useful information on topics as diverse as sexual response and sexuality, love and intimacy, performance anxiety, male and female sexual dysfunction, compulsive sexual behavior, sexual and reproductive health, conception, contraception, fertility, HIV and AIDS, teenage sexuality, sex and aging, and extramarital affairs. Heterosexuality cuts through the platitudes and media hype to delve deeply into the sexual psyche, promoting, a fuller and richer understanding of male-female sexuality for the general public, and for social scientists, mental health professionals, and medical practitioners.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The world's foremost trio of sex researchers (Virginia Johnson and Robert C. Kolodny join Masters) addresses aspects of sexual relations between men and women, such as sexual response, love and intimacy, performance anxiety, sexual dysfunction, compulsive sexual behavior, reproductive health, contraception, AIDS, teenage sexuality, and extramarital affairs. For general readers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Donna Seaman
"Masters and Johnson" entered the nomenclature of sexuality after they pulled back the covers, so to speak, on sexual activity and female orgasm in their groundbreaking first book, "Human Sexual Response" (1966), but it's actually been the less euphonic "Masters, Johnson, and Kolodny" ever since Robert C. Kolodny joined the team 17 years ago. This trio of renowned sex therapists and researchers have kept pace with all the social, political, and medical changes that affect our sexual behavior, from gender roles to body image, inhibitions, drug use, and AIDS. Here they focus exclusively on the sexual interactions of men and women, covering such topics as patterns of sexual response, contraception, sexually transmitted diseases, extramarital affairs, adolescent sexuality, and sex and aging. They also illuminate the finer points of sexual techniques and attitudes. As always, Masters, Johnson, and Kolodny manage to combine psychological insights with physiological expertise, explaining the subtleties of each clearly, concisely, and reassuringly. They even, on occasion, attain a level of eloquence: "If words are the currency of poetry, and color is the currency of art, touch is the currency of sex." This statement introduces an important chapter on the difference between sexuality and sensuality, between the "action" of coitus and the pleasure of touching. This distinction is allied to the divergence between love and intimacy, and both relate to a variety of sexual dysfunctions and disorders. Such problems as low sexual desire, premature ejaculation, and women's inability to experience orgasm with a partner are all carefully defined, and exercises for overcoming them are described. Sex is, after all, "as much a state of mind as a set of physical responses," and nearly everyone will benefit from reading this calm, sensible, and practical volume.
From Barnes & Noble
In 1966, pioneering researchers Masters and Johnson published their landmark study, Human Sexual Response, one of the first books to report scientifically on sexuality, a subject shrouded in taboos. Today, almost three decades later, important changes have occurred in nearly every aspect of sexuality. In this book, Masters and Johnson, along with their longtime colleague Dr. Kolodny, address these changes with an up-to-date survey of sexual relations between men and women. Delves deep into the sexual psyche.
