9780933900134: Understanding Sexuality: The Mystery of Our Lost Identities

What is sex?

Is it a harmless source of fun and pleasure? A sinful, evil indulgence? Is the proper attitude toward sexuality casual and carefree, or cautious and serious? Is the real basis of sexuality a natural, physical "animal instinct," - or something of a deeper nature?

Almost no one is free of sexual conflict. Few people understand the roots of this conflict . . . let alone the cure.

What is the truth behind this vital topic? Is the answer repression, or promiscuity . . . or neither? Few subjects dominate our lives the way sexuality does, and few subjects are the source of so much confusion, disagreement, and suffering.

What is really going on between men and women? What lies at the root of the tension, conflict, and even violence between the sexes? What is the secret of a happy marriage, and what are the reasons for divorce? Is a relationship, free of conflict and full of love, possible?

Roy Masters, in this searingly insightful work, lays bare the underlying dynamics of one of the most vital topics of all.

About the Author:

To millions of people, Roy Masters is a daily voice of sanity and conscience.

Born April 2, 1928, by the age of four, young Roy was already aware of the plight of human existence. "I remember looking down upon the street from the window of our apartment, and watching the people walking back and forth from their homes to their work," he recalls. I clearly remember the expressions of unhappiness on their faces and thinking to myself, 'There must be more to life than this.'" Masters' father died of a heart attack when Roy was fifteen. In 1948, Roy left England for South Africa, where he worked as a diamond cutter for a little over a year. At age 24, Masters married his wife, Ann, and eventually settled down in Houston, Texas, where he established the Institute of Hypnosis. In 1961, Roy had become aware, as a result of his work with hypnosis, that the reason why he was so successsful with his patients was that he was actually DE-hypnotizing them. Needless to say, he was eager to share his discovery with as large an audience as possible.

In 1963, Roy formed the Foundation of Human Understanding (www.fhu.com), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people resolve their problems using the knowledge Roy had discovered. Soon, he decided to buy a small amount of air time and go on the radio. The program was a success from the very beginning.

Today, Roy continues to spread his message not only to his five children and (at last count) eleven grandchildren, but to millions who listen to his radio show every day. The Foundation has achieved modest success by worldly standards. But for the thousands whose lives have been changed through their contact with the Foundation, however, the organization has achieved the greatest success possible.
