Book Description

Dec 1 1998
Controversial sexual medicine icon Dr. John Money has been on the leading edge of sex research for decades. Supporters and students call him a powerful genius who has changed the face of sex research, blazing new pathways for future scientists and sexologists, especially in the murky area of gender identification and disorders.

Sin, Science, and the Sex Police contains twenty-nine selections covering both the study of sex (sexology) and the ideology of sex (sexosophy) in which Money, the man who coined the terms "gender" and "lovemap," ponders the many dimensions of human sexuality: its biology, the natural coding of sex assignments, how we identify ourselves sexually, the sex roles we play, and more. These fascinating essays explore the compelling topics of eroticism, the ideology of homosexuality, the concept of gender, role and sexual identity, "antisexualism" in history and religion, Freud, paraphilia, gendermaps and loveblots, lust in humans and animals, evolutionary sexology, the Kama Sutra, masturbation, sexological disorders, sex reassignment, orgasm, body-image, and much more.

Money proclaims that while societies have cherished medicine and philosophy as sciences, sex has unfortunately failed to be properly embraced. Always on the cutting edge, always far beyond his time, Money enlightens and fascinates.

1.0 out of 5 stars Money is a fraud May 26 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Dr. Money (a psychologist, not a medical doctor) spent the first 30 years of his career faking a gender experiment at the cost of a boy's sanity. Despite knowledge that the subject of the experiment continued to assert himself as a boy and refused gender engineering, Dr. Money pretended that his experiment in socialization worked 100% on the subject.
He is a fraud, and his theories on sexuality are merely that - theories. And since he's got a proven track record of fraud and falsifying data to fit his theories, nothing he says should be believed. Calling him the "foremost theoretician" is giving him too much credit. He's the foremost fantasizer and liar, and that's about it.
Those that support the doctor and dismiss "As Nature Made Him" are those that have a similar bias as the "doctor" and want his falsified findings to be true. The fact that the "doctor" has refused to accept the testimony of his subject and rejected the facts that were allegedly kept from him, demonstrates that he is more interested in his theory (and the wealth that has flowed from it) than the truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ballance of Bias Jan. 18 2007
By S. Talbot - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A previous reviewer has left a number of one-star ratings on Dr. Money's books, without reading any of them, based soley on reading a heavy-handed and largely innacurate description of Dr. Money's activities in a book called 'As Nature Made Him.' Dr. Money is a renowned sexologist and worthy of better consideration than this.
