Overcoming Impotence
J. Stephen Jones

September 2003
Paperback
·
 
Ohioana Quarterly, Summer 2004
"A light but serious treatment of the subject."

From the Publisher
Thirty million men suffer from some form of erectile dysfunction, according to recent estimates. While literature on the problem has been available for decades, generally it takes the form of dry textbooks written in "medicalese." OVERCOMING IMPOTENCE is, in contrast, user-friendly, emotionally supportive, and extremely informative. Writing in straightforward layman's terms Dr. Stephen Jones, a leading urologist, addresses the serious questions that men or their significant others may have about an increasingly common condition. Dr. Jones says at the outset to the reader that he is not alone in experiencing these problems--he has plenty of company! He discusses normal patterns of sexual...

From Library Journal
Intended for lay readers, these complementary books discuss the theory and practice of treating sexual dysfunction. Hakim is a surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic in Weston, FL, with a practice devoted to treating women's and men's sexual problems. The Couple's Disease covers a wide variety of syndromes with detailed but digestible descriptions and a heartening array of curative approaches pharmaceutical, surgical, and psychosocial.

Caveats to treatments are offered appropriately, current research is described, and the illustrations are very clear. The appendix on sexually transmitted diseases is welcome, and the fictionalized "Dr....

Maximize Your Vitality & Potency: For Men Over 40
Jonathan V. Wright, Lane Lenard Ph.D.
0962741817
February 15, 1999
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Wright (Natural Hormone Replacement for Women Over 40, Smart Pub., 1997) proposes that many symptoms of aging can be significantly lessened by appropriate replacement of testosterone. Like other recent writers (Jed Diamond, Male Menopause, LJ 7/98; Charles Inlander, Men's Health and Wellness Encyclopedia, LJ 5/1/98), Wright favors the term "male menopause" for the climacteric. Like Eugene Shippen (The Testosterone Syndrome, LJ 4/1/98), Wright reviews the clinical research of the last 60 years and concludes that critical sex hormone imbalances occur in both sexes in midlife and that natural testosterone therapy is beneficial in treating a number of symptoms and diseases long thought part of the normal aging process: heart disease, prostate disease, muscle and bone weakness, depression, high cholesterol, weight gain,...

Magic and Impotence in the Middle Ages
Catherine Rider
0199282226
March 2006
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Magic and Impotence in the Middle Ages investigates the common medieval belief that magic could cause impotence, focusing particularly on the period 1150-1450. The subject has never been studied in detail before, but there is a surprisingly large amount of information about it in four kinds
of source: confessors' manuals; medical compendia that discussed many illnesses; commentaries on canon law; and theological commentaries on the Sentences of Peter Lombard. Although most historians of medieval culture focus on only one or two of these kinds of source, a broader comparison reveals
that medieval writers held surprisingly diverse opinions about what magic was, how it worked, and whether it was ever legitimate to use it.

Medieval discussions of magically caused impotence also include a great deal of...

The Sexual Male
Richard Milsten

Jan 1999
Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
This could have been titled "The Dysfunctional Male," since the entire work is devoted to helping men and their partners (of either sex) overcome and prevent impotence. Authors Milsten, a urologist and director of the New Jersey-based Center for Sexual Health, and Slowinksi, a psychologist and sex therapist, offer a comprehensive look at male impotenceAits causes, effects and treatments. Helpful chapters, such as "What is Impotence" or "Myths and Fallacies that Promote Impotence," begin with a box of commonsense, albeit obvious, points ("The average time to ejaculation is simply not known"). A section, "Topics of Special Interest," effectively examines a range of interesting issues such as "Is There a Male Menopause" or "Is It Safe to Resume Sex After a Heart Attack." And a self-evaluation section offers more...

The Popular Front and Central Europe
Nicole Jordan
0521410770
Apr 1992
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Between 1936 and 1938, the French alliance system in East Central Europe collapsed. The resulting dramatic expansion of German power led directly to the Second World War. This illuminating study investigates the implications of French military, economic and diplomatic policies in Central Europe from Versailles until the fall of France, establishing the proper context for the policy options of Léon Blum's Popular Front. It focuses on the clash between the French military and French radical politics in 1936-7 when Blum's government sought to rally to the defence of Czechoslovakia. The figure of Blum illustrates the insights and the dilemmas of a democratic Socialist caught up in the imbrication of foreign and domestic politics which increasingly characterised the 1930s.


Sexual Health for Men
Richard F. Spark
0738202061
April 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Ever since God got angry with David and took away his potency, male sexual function has been more clouded in mystery and myth than in science. But science has done an admirable job catching up, starting with the clever Belgian cleric who observed barnyard chickens in the mid-19th century and determined that the rooster's testicles were the key to his relentless sexual drive. We now know that about 30 million American men suffer erectile dysfunction; that about 40,000 men a year die of prostate cancer; and that men have three kinds of erections (sexual, frictional, and nocturnal).

But there's still a bigger story to tell, and Dr. Richard Spark, a noted endocrinologist, leads us down many paths. We learn about the effects of drugs and alcohol on sexual function, and the role of hormones in male sexual health (and what...



Paralysin Cave: Impotence, Perception and Text in the Satyrica of Petronius
John M. McMahon
9004108254
January 1997
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This volume explores the literary representation of male sexual dysfunction and discusses the natural and supernatural elements of an ancient folk medical system based on conceptual associations between male sexuality and specific plants, animals and minerals. The work incorporates material from both literary and scientific sources to draw parallels between ancient and modern paradigms of healing. The literary depiction of attempts to remedy impotence demonstrates how an accessibility to cures contributes to the sexual and social reintegration of the sufferer. The Satyrica of Petronius echoes this process by means of the text itself and so effects similar ends. The book provides new insights into literature and the ancient belief systems underlying it with its original and integrative approach to ...
