"Science of Masters & Johnson"
Critically acclaimed biographer Thomas Maier offers an unprecedented look at Masters and Johnson and their pioneering work together based on laboratory observation of sexual behavior. Masters and Johnson explained the physiology of human sexual response and revolutionized treatment methods for impotency, premature ejaculation, and other “dysfunctions”—a term they coined. The talk will highlight interviews with the notoriously private William Masters and Virginia Johnson and show how this unusual team changed the way we all thought about, talked about, and engaged in sex. A book signing will follow the event.
