Love Cycles: The Science of Intimacy

Winnifred B. Cutler, Author, Winifred B. Cutler, Author Villard Books $20 (0p) ISBN 978-0-679-40048-6
Cutler ( Menopause: A Guide for Women and the Men Who Love Them ) takes an original and unconventional look at a variety of sexual problems, including infertility, lack of desire, irregular menstrual cycles and impotence. She asserts that most of these problems can be traced to hormone excesses or deficiencies, which can often be altered by such behavior changes as reducing stress and giving up smoking. Other creative, perhaps controversial, recommendations include the suggestion that women can ``cure'' infertility by having sex once a week--no more or less. In addition to problems, Cutler discusses normal sexuality, men's and women's hormonal/sexual patterns as influenced by lunar cycles and other cosmic events and the influence of pheromones on sexuality and menstruation. Extensive annotations, charts, graphs and diagrams provide a solid scientific grounding rare in popular science books. A ground-breaking work of value to general readers as well as to medical and psychology professionals. Literary Guild alternate selection; author tour. (Nov.)
