KIRKUS REVIEW

Basic sex information, mostly on physical matters and in coldly clinical terms. Psychiatrist O'Connor (New York's Columbia Presbyterian Medial Center) marches drily and precisely through male and female sexual anatomy; sexual development; the most common problems (impotence, low libido); ""Bodily positions in lovemaking""; and birth control methods. The text is occasionally addressed to therapists (""in the sessions the marital unit has with the co-therapists, the male therapist should sit facing the male patient. . .""); the occasional case histories do little to make the material more accessible. The conclusions are uniformly bland: ""compatibility is a state of living where individuals are capable of performing in harmonious, agreeable and congenial combinations."" Readers will do better with a more relaxed, less mechanical guide that opens up new possibilities for expression.
