The cases presented in this book are among the most unusual and interesting ever encountered and are unparalleled in sexological literature. With rare insight that strikes at the heart of truth, R.E.L. Masters makes a decisive contribution to the better understanding of humand and animal sexuality. To be sex-driven is to have an active obsession with erotic release, the gratification of which is not to be denied. Such extravagant behavior may be an appeasement of emotional loneliness, an inability to gain a meaningful satisfaction from one sex partner, an alternative to suicide because of emotional and physical frustration, or a psychopathological sexual imbalance such as is popularly called being over sexed. These honest first-person studies demonstrate that the "world of sex" wherein dwell the sex-driven people is not one to be envied and is not one that any responsible individual would wish to glamorize or make to seem desirable. The sex-driven person's communion with the other residents of the "world of sex" is at best a temporary vehicle for his emergence from a dark and painful singularity. In Sex-Driven People, R.E. L. Masters offers an inestimable service to humanity and broadens the scope of man's understanding in the light of scientific sensibility of the human sexual experience.
