5-0 out of 5 stars Unique Perspective Ancient Wisdom
Dr. Chang has the credentials to back up his book. Sections of this book apply to overall health and wellbeing and are repeated in his other books, like the internal exercises and explanations of the Tao. My partner and I (in our fifties) are facing general health issues related to aging and also, we want to keep improving/enjoying our love-making. The perspective here is that our love-making as human beings is a vital component to our complete health. If you don't have a partner, I recommend Dr. Chang's other books which also explain how to keep the sexual glands healthy. "Sexology" shows how partners, gay or straight, can increase their sexual pleasure while improving and strengthening each others' health. It's a philosophy with biological knowledge, so you can learn to live intelligently and love intelligently and not just going from day to day following the latest trends or taking medications for problems that end up costing you your health in the long run. I wish I had this knowledge thirty years ago, I would have made better choices.

5-0 out of 5 stars This can change your life

A major barrier to complete sexual satisfaction for men and women is the male ejaculation. Outlandish as it may seem, this is the message of Dr Chang's book. We are informed that the average ejaculation contains the nutritional value of two New York steaks, ten eggs, six oranges and two lemons. Ejaculation thus depletes the man, leaving insufficient energy to fully satisfy the woman. Dr Chang is well-versed inTaoism, and the techniques he presents not only enhance the sex life for both men and women, but improve health in general. Sex energy is often likened to fire because it can consume or transform. Due to ignorance many people are consumed by their sex energy. Dr Chang shows us effective ways of using sex energy to transform ourselves into more complete and dynamic human beings. A good feature is that the theories behind the techniques are explained.The practices are safe and effective if executed correctly. This book, together with Dr Chang's `The Complete System of Self Healing,' offers time honored health practices that boost our wellbeing.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Tao Priest Owns this book
In my personal past I studied kundalini and tantric. When I discovered these teachings, the sets of nine and the million dollar point, from this book, I thought I had never really lived before, and how superior this system is to the tantric. When I was studying Qi Gong and Tai Chi under a well known and respected tao priest that is from the original line of Tao priests on Wu Dang Mountain, these kind of teachings were brought up. How it can even damage the energetic body if not done right or taught right. I asked later in private about this book and this author. My priest not only owns this book but approves of it. That was enough for me. Ladies, get your copy so you can train your man up now! You will NOT regret it! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Many excellent articles on important subjects.
This book actually contains some first-rate writing on serious topics related to human and animal sexuality -- and it is the height of irony that Mr. Yoe has decided to cloak it all in such a patronizing, finger-pointing presentation. Five stars for many of the articles, two stars for the compiler.

Undoubtedly, the magazine had its sensationalist side, meant to titillate most people's appetite for things that fall outside of "normal" sexuality. So Mr. Yoe chooses to open the book with far-fetched and wholly unscientific article on cross-breeding between species. But before long one finds some pretty insightful essays based on solid historical research, such as Robert Wood's piece on chastity belts, to some pretty accurate treatments of adultery and other issues that arise with "deviant" sexuality. We need more honest, thought-provoking writing on these taboo subjects and I'm afraid a snarky book such as this one only contributes to diminishing perception of this field.

The juvenile approach to this material by Mr. Yoe is quite indicative of American parochialism and shows that "Sexology" utterly failed to make an impression on his thoughts. While our contemporary sexual culture has become much more open and exhibitionist, we have in no way surmounted most of the issues brought about by these writers from decades past. In fact, we may be in more denial than ever before.

5-0 out of 5 stars Morality, sexual vampirism, homosexual chickens and more
Before Playboy or Penthouse there was the 1933 magazine SEXOLOGY: THE ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE OF SEX SCIENCE - and here to recreate a feel for the times is a facsimile hardcover containing some of the hilarious, zany articles and 'science' of the 1930s, from issues of 'phantom pregnancy' to 'sex among the Eskimos'. Morality, sexual vampirism, homosexual chickens and more are covered in a series of kinky, funny excerpts paired with black and white illustrations. General-interest lending libraries will find it a quirky, fun piece of health/science history certain to attract attention among browsers.

5-0 out of 5 stars A bizarre historical look back at our varied sexuality
If you've even had sex with a chicken, or plan to, this is the book for you. (Finally an answer to the question, "which came first...")

Sexology was the long-running magazine that talked about things you just didn't talk about, back in an era when that covered an awful lot of ground.

This book collects some of the best - and strangest - from Sexology's long publishing history, including: Can Humans and Animals Crossbreed? How To Have a Successful Honeymoon, Types of French Prostitutes, and Sex Among the Eskimos. This isn't "Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex But Were Afraid To Ask." Instead, "The Best of Sexology" answers questions you never had about topics you didn't know existed. (Pregnant Men, When Midgets Marry)

Celebrity value comes from discussing the proclivities of such famous individuals as Hitler, Napoleon, Victor Hugo, Ben Franklin and Satan. You'll have to buy the book to see which one had the oddest sex life.

Sexual fetishes is a frequent topic, and the book covers many I'd never heard of (and can't wait to try!).

But don't be fooled into thinking this is a hot book. A lot of the articles focus on freakish deformities (Humans with Tails!) taking any hint of eroticism out of the subject of sex. In a way, it's an exercise in talking about sex without being sexy. You'll read more stimulating descriptions in a cookbook. But that's what makes Sexology so fascinating. Imagine what it was like to read this stuff in the Fifties!

From Elvis Presley to elephantiasis, The Best of Sexology covers all the various aspects of human sexuality, plus a few I think they made up.

John Money
The Adam Principle:
Genes, Genitals, Hormones, & Gender:
Selected Readings in Sexology

(Buffalo, NY: Prometheus Books, 1993) 364 pages

This is a collection of scientific papers
from the second half of John Money's career
as an investigator of unusual phenomena related to sex.
Each paper has a new introduction and abstract,
which often draw on new discoveries since the original publication.
These articles lay the foundations for much future sexology.
Many questions remain unanswered,
but this book should help to formulate the questions more clearly.
Some major themes: female, male, & in-between;
sex-changes; transsexualism; tranvestism; sexual orientation;
& a few paraphilias (masochism, amputee, ants).

Future sexologists might well begin with the reports in this volume.
The phenomena are here displayed;
next we need well-formulated hypotheses,
followed by careful research to see how well these conjectures hold up.

Here are three specific variations of sex and gender
that Money deals with in this volume:

(I) ambiguity of biological sex caused by unusual chromosomes
and various syndromes caused by unusual hormone-mixes and insensitivities
that lead to unusual sexual morphology and perhaps psychology.
Some children born intersexed were raised as girls, others as boys,
demonstrating the power of sex-assignment and rearing.
These individuals who were born between the sexes
were followed with respect to the following behaviors: fantasy, dating,
sexual behavior, marriage, & reproduction or parenthood by adoption.

(II) transsexualism, the impact of sexual birth defects
on the male/female self-designation of the individuals
and their later requests for sex-changes.

(V) sexual orientation: Is adult heterosexuality,
homosexuality, or bisexuality affected by the following factors?
sexual birth-defects; a period of uncertainty about one's sex;
pre-natal hormones; being the sex-partner of a pedophile;
situational homosexuality in prison?

(VI) Transvestism is discussed mainly
in the chapter on gynemimesis--men imitating women.

John Money has laid the groundwork
for at least the next generation of sexology.

Disorders of Desire is the only book to tell the story of the development and impact of sexology—the scientific study of sex—in the United States. In this era of sex scandals, culture wars, "Sex in the City," and new sexual enhancement technologies (like erectile dysfunction drugs), its critique of sexology is even more relevant than it was when the book was first published in 1990.This revised and expanded edition features new chapters addressing:

* The diagnosis of "sex addiction"in the 1970s and its social and political implications.

* New developments within the field of sexology, including the "Viagra Revolution"that began in the 1990s.

* The pharmaceutical industry's role in the development of sexual enhancements and the search for the female equivalent of Viagra. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
A sweeping study of sex, power, and knowledge in modern Japan, this ambitious work provides the first full-scale, detailed history of the formation and application of a science of sex from Meiji through mid-twentieth century Japan. Tracing the different uses made of sexual knowledge, the book brings to light the complex and subtle interplay between sexuality, scientific expertise, social control, and empire building.

Drawing on a wide variety of sources, Fruhstuck analyzes the conflicts and negotiations that aimed at producing a normative sexuality. She shows how the "colonization" of sex was enacted through debates over several issues: the necessity of sex education; the prevention of venereal diseases; the problem of masturbation and its alleged consequences; the legalization of birth control; the fight against prostitution; the emergence of eugenics; and, eventually, the implementation of "racial hygiene" policies. In Colonizing Sex we see how these struggles were driven by rhetoric consisting of cries for defense, liberation, and truth--emphasizing in every historical moment how the sexual body has been, and is, part of much broader currents in political, cultural, and social life. ...

John Money
Gay, Straight, and In-Between:
The Sexology of Sexual Orientation

(New York: Oxford UP, 1988) 267 pages

This book brings a truly scientific approach to an area of belief
frequently dominated by partisan and dogmatic theories
held by people who are certain of the 'truth' before the research begins.
Money concludes that the research is still incomplete,
so the question of the origins of homosexuality,
heterosexuality, & bisexuality remains open.
His research concentrates mostly on people
with sexual ambiguity and/or sexual problems.
But understanding these unusual sexual responses
might cast some light on the more common forms of adult sexuality.

This book also deals with the puzzling phenomenon of transsexuals
--people who believe they are the other sex.
Cross-dressing (as a costume for a sex-script
and for other reasons) is also discussed.
No hormonal differences have been discovered
to account for different sex-scripts or sexual fantasies.
More research is needed to uncover the possible relationships among
sex-hormones, male/female self-designation ("I am a boy/girl"),
gender-personality (one's pattern of 'masculinity' or 'femininity'),
& sex-scripts (one's imprinted sexual fantasies).

5-0 out of 5 stars Congested paths regale in the touch at each profound juncture.
John William Money, PhD (1921-2006), New Zealand born psychologist and sexologist, in "Gay, Straight, and In-Between" (1988), investigates sexual orientation, explaining how some find themselves swimming outside of the mainstream.

In the first of this book's four chapters, "Prenatal Hormones and Brain Dimorphism" covers how before birth the neuroendocrine/central nervous systems, endocrine glands and some visceral tissues secrete into the bloodstream chemicals disbursing information to other bodily organs and cells, which, in turn, affect individuals portraying defective characteristics of both sexes after birth.

Second, in "Gender Coding," Money describes what it is collectively hormonal, genetic and social that impacts on one's mind, body and behaviour, causing them in childhood to be--through "identification," behaving like someone else, and "complementation," behaving unlike another person (both applied to G-I/R, gender-identity/role)--totally female, male or androgynous.

Chapter three, "Gender Crosscoding," delves the conflict between one's gender and behaviour, cross-purposed against external genitals, found in, for instance, homophilia, transvestism and transexualism.

Finally, chapter four, "Lovemaps and Paraphilia," the author expounds on mental templates of the brain, which, because of development, represent one's ideal sexual proclivities/partner(s). Some of which are thought of as egregious perversions. However, Money doesn't believe homosexuality, with its lovemap, is a paraphilia (declassified as one in 1973 from the "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders" of the American Psychiatric Association, and Sigmund Freud, in a 1935 letter to an American mother of a gay son, said homosexuality wasn't an illness, nor could it be changed). Irving Bieber, et al, in "Homosexuality" (1962) said, "Freud's formulation of the etiology of homosexuality postulated a continuum between constitutional and experiential elements." That is, a causation based on what one is physically born with versus what they experience. Money proclaims, "Biology and social input interact at a crucial phase of maturation. It is their interaction that determines the outcome." Further, he states homosexuality is, if anything, understood through the developmental determinism principle, outlining just when the brain becomes heterosexualized, or homosexualized, and to what length, magnitude and permanence.

Such development occurs in stages with several causes. In the prenatal stage, causatively, male sex hormones may masculinize and not defeminize the brain, but a hormonal lack may demasculinize and not feminize, same. During the prenatal/early-newborn phase, preponderant male sex hormones oblivious to female sex hormones, a propensity, but not a predestination, to homosexuality is ratified. From infancy to childhood, the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal system that deals with secretion of hormones is quiescent, where the causative agents enter the brain, to varying degrees, through the sense organs, i.e., social conditioning or learning based on experience and familiarity, called "apperceptive assimilation." Identification with an "exemplar" or model representing one's own sex, and complementation with same of the opposite sex, brings about heterosexuality. When there is discordance, instigated by amerced prepubertal, boy-girl sexual rehearsal play, homosexuality might ensue. The author says the "Exigency theory," that describes requirements intrinsic to one's human existence, by bonding(s), being sustained, typecast and destined by fate, through using/restraining/unfolding mechanisms, unites all sexological theories here.

At the conclusion of this work is a handy, forty-five page glossary, followed by an appendix, exploring treatments for sex offenders. "Gay, Straight, and In-Between" by John Money is well worth reading to discover what makes one tick sexually, where congested paths regale in the touch at each profound junture.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time
This book is just another example of John Money making up stuff to earn a dollar.He is a known fraud and people should not be naive enough to take him seriously.In the past he has made up data and published false research to support his claims.He is a poor excuse for a scientist and nobody should buy his work

5-0 out of 5 stars The best single book for the befuddled and/or fearful
Looking for a book to suggest to a family that has been having trouble understanding, and continuing to love, a gay family member, I had a quick look-around for published materials. I was especially hopeful that there might be an appropriate title by Dr. Milton Diamond, but no such luck. I'll have to hope they'll view his website.That left me with two books that I would very strongly recommend: John Money's Gay, Straight, and In-Between, and Anne Fausto-Sterling's Sexing the Body.Money's book is a straightforward description of how a serious and responsible researcher has come to understand homosexuality over the course of decades of research, but Fausto-Sterling's is a more "nuanced" account of the formation of human sexualities that ruthlessly but with good humor attacks easy assumptions and over-generalizations.

Money objectively synthesizes the work done during his lifetime by numerous researchers in the field of human sexuality. He gives the reader a clear way to understand that the sexual identity of a person, what the person is and is motivated to do as a sexual being, begins with the individual's genetic constitution (which is in all cases almost entirely identical to other human beings), is influenced by the complex hormonal and nutritional environment in the womb during gestation, and then is further molded by nurture and learning -- with early events, generally speaking, being more influential than later events.

Criticisms of Money in the Colapinto book refer to events that occurred early in Money's career, and to an understanding that has been revised and reshaped over the years and the dozen or so books that Money has written to the point that it does Money an injustice to condemn his recent book on that account. More importantly, perhaps, it may turn readers away from a book that describes the "state of the art" at the time it was written. Anyone who wants to study this field must go over these same findings, must "re-search" them, to discover whether further refinements are needed. So, whether you end up agreeing with Money on individual points or not, his book gives in relatively short compass a survey of what is currently regarded as knowledge in this field.

1-0 out of 5 stars This man's work lacks any scientific merit--it's all opinion
Please read of this man's (...) in the work of John Colapinto cited above--As Nature Made Him (it is the story of an identical twin whose circumcision was botched, and
Money recommended that he be raised as a girl--this Money "guineau pig" committed suicide last week--age 38, but not before he had many, many negative words for the misguided "work" of Money).Colapinto is his exclusive biographer.
The fact that Money's name remains prominently on the syllabus of many women's study courses is a considerable shame to both fields of psychology and women's studies.

What really goes on between the sheets? It takes research to discover the truth about sex. But studying people's sex lives has not always been easy, safe, or even legal. This book traces the curious history of sexology and details the surprising findings of these brave researchers who have dared to ask the tough questions.

Written in a breezy style, the book reveals how we came to know what we know about topics from birth control to homosexuality, open marriage to surrogate sex therapy. Included are the most significant events and colorful individuals, such as the idiosyncratic German transvestite Magnus Hirschfeld and the controversial Alfred Charles Kinsey, who shattered the Puritan facade of 1950s America. ...

Product Description
The relationship of scientific research on human sexuality (sexology) to society's legal, judicial, and law enforcement systems (forensics) is the focus of this encyclopaedic volume. Editors James J. Krivacska and John Money have assembled contributions by leading experts, covering a wide range of legal and medical issues pertaining to the interconnection between law and sexual behaviour. Section one examines the nature of paraphilic behaviour and the social framework within which some of it becomes illegal. The topics discussed include sodomy, paedophilia, incest, sexual abuse, rape, exhibitionism, prostitution, and sexual harassment. Section two looks at current strategies for assessing the problems of sex offenders and victims. Among the areas addressed are 'real' sexual abuse vs. 'manufactured' allegations of abuse memories, allegations of satanism and ritual sexual abuse, and the difficulties of treating sex offenders within a legal framework. The final section argues that sexology has much to contribute to the debate of the appropriate role of government in regulating the private sexual behaviour of the citizenry.Sex education, contraception, abortion, AIDS, pornography, social tolerance vs. criminalisation, and a comparative view of public sex policy in China and Russia are among the subjects reviewed. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
Principles of Developmental Sexology is a summation of Money's life's work, much of it devoted to pediatric sexology, both normal and abnormal. This book marks the foundation of a new branch of scholarship and science, the developmental sexology of childhood and adolescence, from prenatal life onward. Uniquely thorough and comprehensive in its use of data, Principles of Developmental Sexology maintains its disinterestedness, and avoids both the currently popular theories of social constructionism and the so-called medical models of sexuality. ...

John Money
Principles of Developmental Sexology

(New York: Continuum, 1997) 384 pages
(ISBN: 0-8264-1026-X; hardcover)
(Library of Congress call number: HQ21.M733 1997)

John Money presents a good summary of almost all the themes in sexology
that he has handled in much greater length in his many earlier books and articles.
Sometimes the content of another book is summarized in just one or two pages.
In writing this summary at the end of his long career,
he had the opportunity to make some minor changes
and to express himself more clearly.
But basically, he does not take back the content of any of his previous books.
Thus, this one volume will serve future generations
as a good introduction to the sexology of John Money.
Readers introduced to a particular issue in this book
can pursue that issue more deeply in other books and articles by John Money
--and others writers in the same school of thought.

I recommend this book highly.
It is written so well that it merited reading aloud,
which I find true of less than 5% of the books I read.

Principles of Developmental Sexology
breaks no new ground for John Money.
But it does provide up-to-date references to new publications,
many of which were not written when he published his earlier books.
Many of Money's perspectives are not yet accepted by other sexologists.
But he leads the way into an area of scientific investigation
few others have tried.
John Money will be recognized well into the 21st century
as the greatest sexologist of the 20th century.
His theories are not closed and settled dogmas.
In the spirit of scientific investigation,
he maintains an open mind on questions
for which there is not sufficient evidence to formulate a reliable theory.
In many cases he merely introduces the beginnings
of new lines of scientific research into the mysteries of human sexuality.

Here are the basic themes covered in
Principles of Developmental Sexology:
1. biological roots of human sexuality.
2. development of personality-differences between males and females.
3. development of "lovemaps"--sex-scripts or imprinted sexual fantasies.
4. emergence of romantic love
--and its various manifestations and distortions.
5. varieties of human "pairbonding"--mating, marriage.
6. sexual problems encountered in the teen years.
7. orgasm and its problems.
8. body-image and self-concept.
9. unusual sex-scripts ("paraphilias")--and their problems.

Product Description
Purchase of this book includes free trial access to www.million-books.com where you can read more than a million books for free.This is an OCR edition with typos.Excerpt from book:The disintegration of the prevalent forms of religious belief, the rapid multiplication of sects, the increase in the ranks of intellectual skeptics, the fashionable detractions from, and perversions of, the Holy Scriptures, acting with the influences already mentioned, may well cause alarm.The boy of the present generation has more practical knowledge of sexual instinct at the age of fifteen than, under proper training, he should be entitled to at the time of his marriage; and the boy of eleven or twelve boastfully announces to his companions the evidences of his approaching virility. Nourished by languishing glances and fanned by more intimate association on the journey to and from school, fed by stolen interviews and openly arranged festivities, stimulated by the prurient gossip of the newspaper and the flash novel, the gallant of twelve years is the libertine of fourteen. That this picture is not overdrawn every experienced physician will bear witness. Eevelations are rare; instances of detection are extremely infrequent; so liberal are the opportunities afforded, and so blind are those whose duty it should be to guard. We boldly proclaim that the roues among boys outnumber the onanists by thousands, and that, destructive and revolting as is the latter vice, it is even more tolerable to contemplate than the other. The one, if persevered in, must reveal itself; the othar keeps secret its hidden transactions. The one wrecks body and mind; the other grows and fattens to invest the subtlest of demons. The writer could engage to select the onanists of a school by a walk among the pupils; he could not promise so much for the young Lotharios. Indeed, if he could, and it were to be made a cause of expulsion, he fears there would be but a slender attendance in any school thus vised... ... Read more

Product Description

It is well known that much of our modern vocabulary of sex emerged within nineteenth-century German sexology. But how were the 'German ideas' translated and transmitted into English culture? This study provides an examination of the formation of sexual theory between the 1860s and 1930s and its migration across national and disciplinary boundaries.
