by Robert W. Baer, Psy.D.
Is Fred Dead? A Manual on Sexuality for Men with Spinal Cord Injuries addresses issues closely related to menís perception of self-worth and self-esteem. While a great deal of the research related to the sexuality of men with SCIs has focused on fertility, the medical community has often ignored other aspects of sexuality.
Robert W. Baer, Psy.D., offers detailed and useful information for resuming sexual relations and developing an increased level of intimacy. Sexual anatomy is discussed, as is the sexual response cycle, erectile dysfunction, fertility techniques, positions, and sexual aids. Is Fred Dead? A Manual on Sexuality for Men with Spinal Cord Injuries offers candid and welcome assistance to those struggling to make a positive adjustment to their lives.
