Masters of Sex (Paperback) Book

SKU ID #453913
Showtime's dramatic series Masters of Sex, starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, is based on this real-life story of sex researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson. Before Sex and the City and ViagraTM, America relied on Masters and Johnson to teach us everything we needed to know about what goes on in the bedroom. Convincing hundreds of men and women to shed their clothes and copulate, the pair were the nationís top experts on love and intimacy. Highlighting interviews with the notoriously private Masters and the ambitious Johnson, critically acclaimed biographer Thomas Maier shows how this unusual team changed the way we all thought about, talked about, and engaged in sex while they simultaneously tried to make sense of their own relationship. Entertaining, revealing, and beautifully told, Masters of Sex sheds light on the eternal mysteries of desire, intimacy, and the American psyche.

    Comments about this product:

    I had a working knowledge of the Masters & Johnson studies of the late 50s/early 60s. In my flippant assumption, I was certain that I needed no superfluous details to reinforce my belief that I was cool and on top of things. Well, the excellent Showtime series have revealed that Dr. Masters and soon to be medical scholar Johnson are engulfing characters brought to life by Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan in multidimensional personalities. The repressed period that they embarked on these studies were also a time when a doctor would light up cigarette after cigarette while giving patients a patient update. Then for an even more dramatic seduction, Dr. William Masters and Virginia Johnson were real breathing, emoting human beings.
