Synopsis

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, \u0022Sex in the City,\u0022 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:



















&&LI&&The diagnosis of \u0022sex addiction\u0022in the 1970s and its social and political implications.&&/LI&&



&&/UL&&







&&LI&&New developments within the field of sexology, including the \u0022Viagra Revolution\u0022 that began in the 1990s. &&/LI&&



&&/UL&&







&&LI&&The pharmaceutical industry's role in the development of sexual enhancements and the search for the female equivalent of Viagra.&&/LI&&
