    schema:description "This collection of pioneering sexologist Leonore Tiefer's essays includes popular as well as professional writings on the social construction of sexuality and includes a new section on Tiefer's most recent essays on female sexual dysfunction (fsd). Tiefer's background as a sexologist is unusually broad, including rodent copulation research, sex therapy, classification of dysfunctions and feminist analysis. Her wit and passion are evident in such recent essays as "Doing the Viagra Tango: Sex Pill as Symbol and Substance," "From Viagra to Niagara: Why is it so Hard to Just Talk About Sex?,"and "A New Sexual World -- Not" as well as the now classic pieces "The Kiss," "Women's Sexuality: Not a Matter of Health," "Sexual Biology and the Symbolism of the Natural," and "Am I Normal? The Question of Sex." As Tiefer states toward the end of her introduction to Part 1,"A kiss is not a kiss; your orgasm is not the same as George Washington's, premarital sex in Peru is not premarital sex in Peoria, abortion in Rome at the time of Caesar is not abortion at the time of John Paul II, and rape is neither an act of sex nor an act of violence -- all of these actions remain to be defined by individual experience within one's period and culture.""@en ;
