About the Author

William Masters was born in Cleveland, Ohio on December 27, 1915. He was a member of Alpha Delta Phi, and became a faculty member at Washington University in St. Louis. Masters met Johnson in 1957 when he hired her as a research assistant to undertake a comprehensive study of human sexuality. Masters divorced his first wife to marry Johnson in 1971. They divorced two decades later, largely bringing their joint research to an end. Masters died in Tucson, Arizona on February 16, 2001. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Masters and Johnson's great contribution to the study of sex. This masterpiece shamelessly delves into the details of the human sexual response. It is an honest and straightforward approach to the physiology of sex. If you ever really, really wanted to know exactly what was going on during sexual excitement, this is the book for you.
Aside from the book's large contribution to the the study of sex, the book is a priceless artifact for those who are intrigued with the history of sexuality. The book, though trying to be objective, showcases some beliefs about sex during the sixties.
All in all a treasure.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Masters and Johnson research team head by William H. Masters (1915-2001) and Virginia E. Johnson (born 1925) pioneered research into human sexuality from 1957 until the 1990s. The follow-up to this volume is Human Sexual Inadequacy.

They wrote in the Preface to this 1966 book, "If problems in the complex field of human sexual behavior are to be attacked successfully, psychologic theory and sociologic concept must at times find support in physiologic fact. Without adequate support from basic sexual physiology, much of psychological theory will remain theory and much of sociological concept will remain concept... This text represents the first step, a faltering step at best, but at least a first step toward and open-door policy. The door of investigative objectivity must not be closed again." They acknowledge that "The concentration of study subjects from upper socioeconomic and intellectual strata provided by this major source of supply has not been offset by a statistically significant number of lower-range family units obtained from out-patient clinic sources." (Pg. 11)

They summarize: "A more concise picture of physiologic reaction to sexual stimuli may be presented by dividing the human male's and female's cycles of sexual response into four separate phases. Progressively, the four phases are: (1) the excitement phase; (2) the plateau phase; (3) the orgasmic phase; and (4) the resolution phase. This arbitrary four-part division of the sexual response cycle provides an effective framework for detailed description of physiologic variants in sexual reaction." (Pg.

Thanks for the quick shipping! Masters and Johnson did some interesting research but do seem to write purposefully in a very dry manner. If you are interested in learning about Masters and Johnson's research this is a great book to purchase.

This is a classic. These two pioneered much of the data mining that has helped our educational system begin to teach a curriculum on sexuality and human relationship. If you want to find out where it all started, look no further--GREAT book!
