Description

Synthesizing many years' investigation into sexual identity and orientation, this book presents Dr Money's formulation of how sexual preference is determined. It includes a review of long-term follow-up studies on pre-natal influences on sexual identity, and discusses gender differentiation in childhood. The book concludes with an examination of the conflict between gender and sexual identities, and a description of the paraphilias.show more

Review quote

...a scholarly, personal conspectus of the subject which should be readily intelligible to a lay as well as a professional readership. A glance at the bibliography will demonstrate the extent of Money's own contribution to the science of sexology. * Cambridge University Press *show more
