Sexual excitement : dynamics of erotic life by Robert J Stoller( )

37 editions published between 1979 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sexual excitement is as individual as a fingerprint and as complex as a psychological life-history, For most people it is a melodrama composed of the past and present, building on tensions of risk, mystery, illusion, hostility, and revenge. Consciously or unconsciously, we relive our earliest experiences and become aroused when we can turn the traumas of early life into the triumph of sexual pleasure. Through the story of Belle, a young woman in psychoanalysis, Professor Robert Stoller advances the theory that sexual excitement, from the most aberrant to the relatively normal, is related to hostility, the desire to harm. At the center of Belle's character is a key erotic fantasy that contains in symbolic language, her sexual autobiography. In fantasy, Belle rewrites the story of her life, exacting mastery over and revenge on the important figures who caused her pain in the distant past. Her adult erotic pleasure is a literal, though hidden and ritualized, victory over the inevitable defeats of childhood

"A previously unpublished work by Robert Stoller. 'It was like discovering a previously unknown recording by the Beatles. On a 2007 visit to Robert Stoller's widow, Sybil, she handed me a manuscript. Bob's last book had been placed in a publishing queue by his retiring editor. After Bob's death Sybil was told that the publisher had discontinued psychoanalytic books. It languished on a home shelf in Los Angeles for sixteen years. I was holding the final work by psychoanalysis's most eloquent writer on sex.' - From the Foreword by Dr Richard Green"--Provided by publisher
Porn : myths for the twentieth century by Robert J Stoller( Book )

17 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and Italian and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un frammento di etnografia urbana. Così l'autore definisce il suo libro nella prefazione. Titolo in inglese "Porn", "mondo a luci rosse". Di questo mondo l'autore intende fornire un ritratto dall'interno, a partire cioè dalla prospettiva dei vissuti individuali. L'approccio è di natura psicoanalitica, ma sul piano operativo l'autore indossa i panni di un etnografo-intervistatore. Le testimonianze raccolte da Stoller possono fornire un materiale di prima mano allo studioso e allo specialista, ma anche al lettore comune che ha modo di conoscere una realtà dominata da interpretazioni stereotipate.

Coming attractions : the making of an x-rated video by Robert J Stoller( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What do porn films tell us about our own erotic impulses? What can we learn about our culture's sexual attitudes, fears, and fantasies from the ways that porn films are designed and produced? In this book, Dr. Robert J. Stoller, one of the world's leading experts on human sexual behavior, joins with I.S. Levine, a professional writer with long experience in X-rated video making, to examine the ideas and psychological makeup of the participants in an adult heterosexual X-rated video, Stairway to Paradise. Their interviews with performers, writers, directors, producers, and technicians provide extraordinary insights into the technical aspects of this type of video, the motivations and backgrounds of the people involved, and the porn industry's view of the video's intended audience. Stoller, Levine, and the porn filmmakers have wide ranging discussions about the aesthetics, ethics, and etiquette of the porn industry; the hostility that Dr. Stoller claimed underlies all erotic excitement; the liberating - and educational - function of porn in a puritanical culture; the misconceptions of antiporn crusaders; the impact of AIDS on the participants; and the future of the porn film industry. The authors hope that if we understand how and why a pornographic work is created, we will be better able to understand the implications of the legal and moral issues it raises

Cognitive science and psychoanalysis by Kenneth Mark Colby( Book )

13 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring the connections between cognitive science and psychoanalysis, the authors indicate that a potentially fruitful relationship can exist between the two fields. The book examines this relationship, concluding that psychoanalysis can contribute to a science of the mind when it flows into a more effective science and technology such as cognitive science. As viewed by the authors, cognitive science is ""a new, lively field, full of novel concepts and methods about the mind."" This is sharply contrasted with their opinion of psychoanalysis as a discipline which must change and cons
The new ego: pitfalls in current thinking about patients in psychoanalysis by Nathan Leites( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work which advances the following propositions about recent psychoanalytic writing: 1) The central term identification has been used in so many and in such indefinite senses that it is now best to replace it with less slippery terms; 2) the word identity adds nothing whatever to the descriptive power of statements about the self, and it would be well to renounce its use entirely; 3) the promotion of the ego to an elevated position in psychoanalysis, a steady trend since 1940, has added little that common sense was unaware of to our understanding of real events. More generally, this book addresses a problem central in social science: the nature of the psychic bonds that tie the individual to his society. It is a comprehensive examination of the way in which psychoanalysis, with its promise of enlarging understanding of the forces and mechanisms through which the self forms links with the other, has been fulfilling this promise
