At first glance the sexual male seems easy to understand, but beneath the surface lie complexities that disrupt lives and relationships. Respected psychologist Michael Bader takes an honest look at the nuances of male sexuality, addressing issues such as sexual boredom, internet sex, and sexual fantasies that can leave women bewildered and men ashamed. Illustrated with engaging examples from his practice, Male Sexuality gives readers, both women and men, deeper understanding of male behavior. Through increased awareness of the psychology behind the sex, Bader aims to enhance individual self-esteem and improve communication in relationships.
“Dr. Bader calls us back from our current temptation to censor and judge sexuality and reminds us that understanding erotic life is the best cure for what ails it.”
—Kim Cattrall, star of Sex and the City
“Michael Bader knows men. He probes the multiple layers of male sexuality with a kindness and compassion that is rare. This book is such a good read–I kept thinking, ‘Yes, he gets it.’”
—Esther Perel, Columbia University, author of Mating in Captivity and The State of Affairs: = Rethinking Infidelity
