Summary The book pioneered the psychological study of sexual behavior. This classic 19th century work on sexual aberration addressed such previously taboo subjects as bestiality, cunnilingus and fellatio, fetishism, incest, masochism, masturbation, nymphomania, and sadism, making it the first serious attempt to catalog and define such "deviations"--Page 4 of cover.
