by Joel Ryce-Menuhin
Talking about sex, while no longer taboo, does not always add to our insight or deepen our understanding of it. In this frank and honest airing of male sexuality, Jungian analyst Joel Ryce-Menuhin presents a rare comprehension of the male experience gathered from over twenty years of working with male clients. By presenting male sexuality along with its psychological and spiritual issues, his work adds to our understanding of men today. In Naked and Erect, the author uses his Jungian perspective to discuss the alchemy of male masturbation, the anima in homosexuality and bisexuality, the archetypal problems of fathering, and the psyche at midlife and the approach of death.
Men may feel they are behaving badly (or be judged as behaving badly) when choosing any of the following forms of sexual expression: masturbation, homosexuality, heterosexuality, fathering, and bisexuality.
In this vivid and frank exploration of men’s sexual lives, Jungian analyst Joel Ryce-Menuhin gives men the reassurance that their particular version of sexuality and be discussed, analyzed, accepted, and sometimes changed, if that is what they come to want. He shares his insights on the psychological and spiritual issues inherent in all expressions of male sexuality… insights gained from over twenty years of working with male clients.
