Dismissed and misunderstood for hundreds of years, the clitoris is the one part of the female body whose sole purpose is pleasure. The truth is out there, and internationally celebrated sex educator Rebecca Chalker has something to say about it. In The Clitoral Truth, Chalker offers the only mainstream, in-depth exploration devoted solely to women's genital anatomy and sexual response. For more than 2,500 years, the clitoris and the penis were presumed to be equivalent in all respects. After the eighteenth century, however, this knowledge was gradually suppressed and forgotten, and the definition of the clitoris as an extensive organ system all but disappeared. During Chalker's tenure as a member of the Federation of Feminist Women's Health Centers, the group helped further the study of the clitoris to unprecedented anatomic precision. The Clitoral Truth investigates every aspect of this magnificent organ to see how its many parts work together to produce orgasms. The Clitoral Truth also delves into the feminist and sexologist controversy over female ejaculation and surveys the numerous ways that women have begun to transform the deeply entrenched male-centered model of sexuality to redefine their sexuality to emphasize full-body pleasure. Female readers—straight, lesbian, and bisexual—will learn new routes to sexual pleasure and new ways to enhance their sexual response. Male readers will discover a world they never dreamed of. Here are vivid personal accounts, a savvy, in-depth survey of female sexuality resources, and the bold and explicit illustrations of San Francisco artist Fish. For people who want to expand their sexual horizons: discover The Clitoral Truth.

Of all the many approaches to psychology, the psychodynamic comes closest to what the layperson expects from psychology. It tackles issues central to human experience including how our relationship with our parents affects our adult relationships, why men and women are different and why we dream. The psychodynamic approach is also however the most misunderstood and misrepresented in psychology, and 'Freud-bashing' has become a popular academic sport. The aim of Psychodynamic Psychology is to cut through the dogma and to provide a clear and balanced review of the major psychodynamic theories and their practical applications. Beginning with a discussion of the history and current scope of the field, Jarvis sets out a reflective model for studying psychodynamics, showing how cognitive style, personal politics and biased cultural transmission inevitably colour students' perception of psychodynamic ideas. The work of some of the most important psychodynamic theorists is reviewed in detail, including that of Freud, Adler, Jung, Klein, Winnicott, Bowlby and Erikson. Each theory is discussed in the light of the latest research findings from psychology and its related disciplines, and a balanced picture of their strengths and weaknesses is presented. The major practical application of psychodynamic psychology has been the provision of psychological therapy. The processes and outcomes of psychodynamic therapies are discussed and a cautiously positive picture emerges.

When Deborah Rudacille learned that a close friend had decided to transition from female to male, she felt compelled to understand why. Coming at the controversial subject of transsexualism from several angles–historical, sociological, psychological, medical–Rudacille discovered that gender variance is anything but new, that changing one’s gender has been met with both acceptance and hostility through the years, and that gender identity, like sexual orientation, appears to be inborn, not learned, though in some people the sex of the body does not match the sex of the brain. Informed not only by meticulous research, but also by the author’s interviews with prominent members of the transgender community, The Riddle of Gender is a sympathetic and wise look at a sexual revolution that calls into question many of our most deeply held assumptions about what it means to be a man, a woman, and a human being.
