About this title


Erotic Anger: A User's Manual is firmly grounded in the sexuality of real men and women. These are not tales told in the locker room, recounting a stirring bit of foreplay that led to a particularly satisfying sexual encounter. Nor are the case studies presented by Pommier stories of simple problems or perfect cures. Rather, they are a return to the classic problems faced by Freud himself in his clinical practice -- impotence, premature ejaculation, and compulsive masturbation -- in which we see the rawness of fantasies and dreams uncensored.

In a voice that is ironic but elegant, aphoristic, cutting, and condensed, Pommier articulates the tortuous path of discovery on which his patients are embarked. Without moralizing or shirking the question of the ethical, his book brings us face to face with the intertwining of desire and aggression, and with their complex clinical, theoretical, and practical issues.
