Robert J. Stoller, . MARESFIELD LIBRARY LONDON. In this book, I shall tease out, from the immeasurable tangle that makes up an analysis, the theme of her sexual excitement. Published in the United States by Pantheon Books, a division of Random Housc, In. New York, and simultaneously in Canada by Random House of Canada Limited, Toronto. I shall try to show how her prototypic erotic daydream was invented and rewritten until it took on the form necessary for her adult sexual life.

In this book, his text is as playful, charming, and serious as his topic. The mix, a scientific and aesthetic exploration of the erotic imagination, is almost as irresistible as one's own erotic daydreams. Observing the Erotic Imagination is for all professional and private students of the erotic. He offers a model clinical illustration, brilliant and full of presence

This is a study of sexual excitement

This is a study of sexual excitement. It is the fifth book - perhaps more accurately, the fifth chapter in one work - on masculinity and femininity (gender identity), carrying forward ideas examined in my last book, Perversion. The other four books are: Sex and Gender: the Development of Masculinity and Femininity, The Transsexual Experiment, Splitting: A Case of Female Masculinity and Perversion: The Erotic form of Hatred. It is a pleasure to give an unreserved welcome to Stoller's book He covers both psychological and biological anomalies of sexual identity which he has been studying clinically for ten years.

This book aims to show that the function of day-dreams is to state a problem that has been disguised and then to solve it, the problem and the solution being the poles between which excitement flows

Stoller's output on gender and sexuality is hard to, once understood, surpass. All of his works, and each progressively enlightening in its own way, create a self-critical (but scientific insofar as it is possible in this field) account of how gender and sexuality develops. He takes in for each new work developments in the field as well as his own clinical practice that focuses specifically on issues of sexuality and gender.

This work focuses, of course, on sexual excitement, which Stoller notes has been largely ignored in psychoanalytic practice and also generally. This is *still true*, and more so because of his absence. This book, which builds on his previous work Perversion, describes the process of Sexual Excitement through the example of one case. Of course Stoller condenses his general knowledge of sexual excitement into this one example, while still remaining true to the patient as far as I can tell. The insights into sado-masochism, how culture plays into sexual fantasy, and especially how sexual excitement is created out of contextualizing and conquering trauma are compelling.

The book, scattered a bit before the last chapters but then appearing prominently, takes a bit too much of a critical perspective on Freud's theory and phrasing. Stoller was originally trained as a biologist, so the distaste for psychoanalytic discourse isn't surprising. And it *is* enlightening to some degree. But he takes Ricoeur's critique of Freud too seriously, and the reason for this comes out in the 3rd to last chapter. Stoller doesn't like anthropomorphizing. However, anthropomorphizing is vital to psychoanalytic discourse. This is because it is difficult to properly think about "cathexis" and whatnot without a sense of its intentionality. This is the intentionality of material, but to be able to conceptualize it, we do have to anthropomorphize it. This is a theoretical constraint, in my opinion, that has to be accepted.

What comes with this is a critique of Freud's descriptions of the energetics that underlie mental phenomena. Luria describes the energetics of the brain as being regulated by "cortical tone," or the level of excitement in the brain in general and as localized. Neuropsychology has since been in agreement that there is a certain level of energy running through the brain that is regulated by the nervous system. Freud predicted, though certainly not with precision due to the historical constraints, the neuropsychology behind the phenomena he was seeing in his patients. From the critique of Ricoeur's, Stoller concludes that Freud didn't connect his energetic theory with meaning. This is a complete misunderstanding of Freud: energetics in the brain activates systems of meaning (in this book what Stoller theorizes interestingly but superfluously as "microdots"), and therefore brain energetics and meaning as it appears to consciousness cannot at all be disconnected as one phenomena is merely the appearance in a different concept of the other.

ANYWAYS - this book is well worth reading. As with the rest of Stoller's output, it is tremendously useful as an antidote to today's unanchored gender theorists insisting on a politically charged but historically unmoored idea of how gender ambiguity, or even the "dissolution" of gender, can be a solution to social ills. And, as with Stoller, we should be inviting to feminist critiques of society and psychoanalysis - because they always carry truth- and also know when they misunderstand human psychology and cultural development.

Stoller's views on sexuality have intrigued me since I first encountered his 1976 article "Sexual Excitement"in the 1976 Archives of General Psychiatry published by the AMA. In brief, he posits that "normal" sexual excitement, untainted by overtones of sadism, control, rejection fantasies and other psychological baggage, elicits a pallid, tame level of erotic fever compared to the off-the-charts levels of addictive excitement elicited by these add-ons.

He is highly critical of untested Freudian theory and in this volume details an enlightened view of feminine sexuality (penis envy -humbug!)as well as a perceptive analysis of the dynamics of SM, exhibitionism and other distortions of loving, uncomplicated intimacy. This book is highly recommended for anyone attempting to treat individuals suffering from distorted sexual impulses. If I have a criticism, it would be that he appears to suggest in his writing that loving, truly intimate sex, untainted by at least subtle elements of hostility, is a rarity. I hope he's wrong, but in my thirty years experience as a psychotherapist and friend of many couples who pass as normal, I'm not so sure.

Almost the ONLY book to explore the origins of sexual excitement!. Lively, sophisticated and opinionated. Very readable.
