Format: Paperback
NOT MADE OF STONE was published in 1974 and clearly was ahead of its time. Written by three Europeans (Heslinga, Schellen and Verkuyl), the authors take the bold move to describe and outline the effects of disability on human sexuality. By today's standards, the material written in this book is nothing we couldn't hear on TV. However, that was NOT true in the 1970's. On the other hand, some of the pictures would still never pass the TV censors in the US.
The authors take a scholarly and applied approach to the issue of sexual functioning for a wide range of disabilities. I don't think they missed much. The writing is sensitive, thoughtful and very much unlike what one would expect. Since 1974, many other books have been written on disability and sexuality. To my mind, NOT MADE OF STONE remains the best. It is sad that this book is out of print.
