William H. Masters, Author, Robert C. Kolodny, With, Virginia E. Johnson, With HarperCollins Publishers $27.5 (595p) ISBN 978-0-06-019041-5
In an enlightened, remarkably thorough guide to heterosexual loving and sex, renowned sex researchers Masters and Johnson, together with physician Kolodny, begin by discussing theories of love. They then present practical, comprehensive information on contraception, legal and medical aspects of abortion, causes and treatment of infertility; they also offer sound clinical advice on overcoming inhibited desire, improving sensual responsiveness, coping with compulsions like sadism and pedophilia and confronting sexual problems associated with alcoholism, drug abuse, breast cancer, heart ailments, diabetes and depression. The authors provide thorough coverage of sexually transmitted diseases, then review medical, social and emotional aspects of AIDS as applicable to both straights and gays. They conclude with chapters on adolescent sex, sexual activity in the ``geriatric years'' and ``myths'' surrounding extramarital affairs. An invaluable sourcebook for couples and singles seeking self-understanding and fulfillment. (Mar.)
