Money introduced the terms gender identity, gender role and sexual orientation and popularised the term paraphilia.

I didn't have any money to speak of, but I had some -and he was to take that and pawn it for money to get marriedwith. I se. To his infinite relief the waiter interrupted them. I'm proposing marriage," he said, with his quaint, one-sided smile. Please listen: I came to this place to make a quick end to mytroubles-but I've changed my mind about that, now. What's happened inthis room has made me see that nobody has any right to-hasten things. But I mean to leave the and let death find mewhere it will. I shall leave behind me a name and a little money,neither of any conceivable use to me.

The money stayed by him handsomely. Thanks to a strong constitution in a tough body (now that its malignant demon was exorcised) he found it easy to pick up a living by one means or another. Indeed, he played many parts in as many fields before joining hands with a young Englishman he had grown to like and entering upon what seemed a forlorn bid for fortune.

One minute he was by David’s side, calmly rising to fire his rifle at the Humvee, which spit death in all directions like a fire-breathing monster. David dragged him fully behind the boulder. 50-caliber machine gun chewed at the rock for a few seconds before turning south to engage the rifle fire to the southeast. The guns on that side immediately fell silent, and David imagined the people-many if not most of them women-would be cowering, unable to stand before the hundreds of rounds pouring into their position.

A study of the historical genesis and present-day persistence of antisexualism in American healthcare and social/legal policy.
I have to admit that I was attracted to The Destroying Angel initially because I thought it was a history of the health food movement in the US. I had just read The Road to Wellville by T. C. Boyle and was interested in determining the accuracy of this fictional treatment of Dr. John Harvey Kellogg. So I was a bit surprised to discover that this is a book on the history of what the author, a sexologist, calls Degeneracy Theory. Now I feel like I need to read some more history to verify the facts of this book.

Anyway, I found out that Dr. Kellogg was accurately portrayed in the Road to Wellville. Congratulations Mr. Boyle for a job well done! However, while there is a very good treatment on the history of the health food movement in this book, it appears that the founders and major thinkers of this movement also had strong beliefs about sexuality. So while one third of this book is about corn flakes, whole grains and vegetarians, the rest of it is an outline of two pre-20th century mistaken theories on sexuality.

The first of these is that masturbation causes disease. According to the author this came about because, before the germ theory, people felt that the symptoms of syphilis and other sexually contracted diseases, could be traced to "self-abuse" rather than contagious transmission. The second sexual theory treated historically in the book is that sexual excitement and the corresponding sexual release are injurious to the human body and should be avoided as much as possible. The combination of these two is what John Money calls Degeneracy Theory and he claims that their effects inhibit a sexually healthy society to this day.

In an Epilogue called Theory Of Sex, Love, And Health Without Degeneracy, which is the longest chapter in the book, Money provides a wonderfully concise outline of Sexology as it was understood twenty years ago. Thus, while nothing he says is out of date, you will not find Viagra-like drugs mentioned.

This was an important book for me. I have never seen the history of sexuality theory so well portrayed. John Money is at his weakest when, towards the end of the book, he relies on technical terminology which may discourage a general readership that is most in need of this information.
I enjoyed this book a great deal because of the historical focus on a time of our history of unbridled prudishnes. Some of this is very funny. My family had in its possesion records from a mental hospital from around the turn of the century and more than half of the patients were admitted for consequences of masturbation! The rest of the book is interesting although like many sexological texts, somewhat dry. I mean, if you are going to write about sex, let's at least get a little juicy.
