Gay, Straight, and In-Between : The Sexology of Erotic Orientation
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.
