Sent: 16 August 2011 21:56 Dear colleagues, I am conducting critical work on the contemporary experimental neurosciences of sexuality - studies in which participants are put in sexual states in controlled ways while lying in brain scanners. What interests me for now is the understandings of sexual arousal, desire and pleasure at work (and produced) in the experiments. Such neuroimaging experiments seem to owe a lot to traditions in experimental psychology and experimental sexology (or how should i call it?). This contemporary project of documenting the physiology of sexual arousal and orgasm is also, at least at first glance, reminiscent of Masters and Johnson's work - a brain version of it, so to speak. Therefore I wonder if you could recommend me good historical work on Masters and Johnson's experiments and their models of sexuality; any other literature advice is, of course, very welcome as well. Many thanks in advance, Isabelle isabelle dussauge, ph.d. associate researcher / assistant professor - tema T (department of thematic studies - technology and social change) linköping university, SE-58183 linköping, sweden +46-708192856 / firstname.lastname@example.org - www.tema.liu.se/tema-t/medarbetare/dussauge-isabelle
