Masters and Johnson on Sex and Human Loving

William H. Masters, Author Little Brown and Company $31.94 (598p) ISBN 978-0-316-54990-5
Since this trio's 1982 publication of the college textbook Human Sexuality, sex-abuse cases and teenage pregnancies have multiplied, the ""G-spot'' has been identified, the AIDS epidemic has traumatized gays and straights alike, and the contraceptive sponge (with its 15% failure rate) has been introduced. This volume, which reproduces most of the 1982 text, covers these and other developments in chapters dealing with sexual anatomy and response, birth control, gender roles, homosexuality, sexual fantasy and so forth. The tone is responsible, clinical and dry, but the basic information provided shoud prove helpful to many. The authors offer straightforward suggestions to parents on sex education along with advice to persons who have been involved in incest and to couples who want to enhance sexual satisfaction. While touting the Masters and Johnson sex-therapy method as revolutionary, they discuss various rival approaches and offer guidelines for choosing a sex therapist. First serial to Redbook. (June 16
