There are countless books on sex and an endless fascination with the subject. Varieties and vagaries of sexual desire have long been documented, but there has been little engagement with cutting-edge scientific research to uncover the biological and psychological bases of sexual desire. Here, Frederick Toates uses the insights of modern science to show how a wide range of desire-related phenomena - fantasy, novelty-seeking, sexual addiction, sex-drug interactions, fetishes, voyeurism, and sexual violence and killing - start to make sense. For example, the role of the brain's neurochemical dopamine can now be much better understood in terms of wanting, and a distinction between wanting and liking has been established. Also, an understanding of the layered organization of the brain, sometimes described as hierarchical, can be used to explain temptation and conflict. This is a fascinating book with great social relevance to society and its problems with sexuality.

Was wäre, wenn ein riesiger Asteroid durchs All Richtung Erde trudeln würde und man eventuell nur noch zehn Wochen Zeit hätte, um all seine Wünsche und Hoffnungen in die Tat umzusetzen? Peter, Eliza, Anita und Andy müssen sich kurz vor dem Schulabschluss genau dieser Frage stellen. Ihnen bleiben zehn Wochen, um all ihre Hoffnungen und ihre Herzen in die Waagschale zu werfen, denn vielleicht, vielleicht, ist es die einzige Zukunft, die sie haben. In diesem existentiellen Carpe-Diem-Szenario stellt sich für den Sunnyboy Peter ebenso wie für die ehrgeizige Anita die Frage, was für sie wirklich zählt, und auch der sorglose Andy und die fatalistische Eliza mit ihrer Nach-mir-die-Sintflut-Haltung müssen zum ersten Mal ernsthaft ihr Leben überdenken.

Eine junge Frau reist im Auftrag ihrer Schwiegermutter nach Griechenland. Sie soll deren Sohn suchen. Die Schwiegermutter weiß nicht, dass das Paar längst getrennt lebt. In den steinigen, verbrannten Landschaften auf der Peloponnes geht die junge Frau den Spuren ihres Ex-Mannes nach. Sie beginnt Mutmaßungen anzustellen, die Vergangenheit zu hinterfragen. Gerade, als sie sich eingesteht, wie wenig sie ihren Mann eigentlich kannte, wird er tot aufgefunden. Warum hält sie nun, da die Trennung unwiderruflich ist und sie etwas wie Trauer empfindet, die Fiktion ihrer Ehe weiterhin aufrecht? Eine neue großartige Stimme aus Amerika – selten wurden die Abgründe der Gefühle so durchdrungen wie von Katie Kitamura.

The concept of sexual addiction has gained increasing recognition in the academic and healthcare communities since the 1990s. It has also captured the attention of the media, where there has been much debate over whether it can truly be described as an addiction. What is certain is that many people struggle with out of control sexual behaviour, which takes over their lives and has harmful consequences for their relationships, careers and finances. The Routledge International Handbook of Sexual Addiction brings together a comprehensive range of perspectives on sexual addiction from a worldwide selection of scholars and therapists. It sets out to define sexual addiction and to study its causes from a range of different psychological perspectives. A series of presentations of sexual addiction are outlined, including internet sexual addiction and the relationship between paraphilias and sex addiction. The handbook considers both individual and group treatment strategies, drawing on a wide range of approaches, including cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness and 12-step programmes. The book studies sex addiction in specific populations including women, adolescents and men who have sex with men. Finally, it considers some of the alternative discourses surrounding the concept of sexual addiction. This is the first comprehensive reference book to bring together global viewpoints on advances in research, theory and practice in one volume. This handbook provides an essential guide for academics and students of psychotherapy, counselling, nursing, addiction, sexualities, social work and health and social care, as well as professionals in practice and in training working with sexual addiction and related issues.

Easily accessible, the Handbook is divided into sections that touch on fundamental knowledge and skills; treatment; men’s major sexual concerns; women’s major sexual concerns; problems common to both genders; the diversity of sexual lives; and future and trending topics. Written in a personal, supervisory style, the book will help new therapists anticipate clinical contingencies and help experienced therapists refine their thinking and teaching.
