For 20 years Shere Hite has been conducting ground-breaking research into the personal lives of women and men. From her conclusions she has formulated philosophical guidelines which have initiated and enlightened debates about sexuality, love, marriage, autonomy, friendships between women, male psychology, the family and our very culture in a time of radical change, From the first Hite Report which presented a new theory of female sexuality - one defined by women themselves and not imposed by the vagaries of Freud, patriarchy or Masters and Johnson - to her celebrated psychosexual investigations of men and her latest analysis of the emotions surrounding love as women describe them, Shere Hite is consistently challenging. She takes the pulse of individuals, astonishing amounts of them, and on the basis of wide-ranging research formulates her theories. This book shows the impact of her work over two decades and, at the same time, takes us to the cutting edge of the current debate on sexual politics in our culture.show more
