Sent: 17 August 2011 20:55 Hi Hera, Great post. Last I heard Rachel Maines was working at Cornell University as a visiting scientist at School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Best, Danielle -----Original Message----- From: History of Sexuality [mailto:H-HISTSEX@H-NET.MSU.EDU] On Behalf Of Hera Cook Sent: Tuesday, August 16, 2011 9:32 PM To: H-HISTSEX@H-NET.MSU.EDU Subject: FW: trailer for the "Hysteria" movie Well the film seems to have it all over the book, inasmuch as even the more credulous viewer will surely pause before taking this as historical truth? It is a sexual fantasy - as was the book. I always loved Maggie Gyllenhaal and I hope the film does more with her than the trailer suggests. And after all recalling to an earlier question - wouldn't we all like to be in the same category as Master's and Johnson's favourite female research subjects? These women had only to hop on a laboratory table and wave their hand in the direction of their genitals to have 5 or 6 orgasms. Well perhaps it was harder work at times.... Does anyone know what Rachel P. Maines, author of The technology of orgasm: "hysteria," the vibrator, and women's sexual satisfaction, 2001, is doing now? http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Trailer-For-Maggie-Gyllenhaal-s-Vibrator-Comedy-Hysteria-26240.html Cheers, Hera
