Today the language used to justify this power has become more flawed, more insidious; it is the language of sexologists like Masters and Johnson, for whom women remain instruments to be played by male virtuosos. Holy Virility chronicles the changing language of the suppression, arguing at the same time that the press that is himself impoverished. Forced to measure up to match those standards of performance, many men experience their power and sexuality as heavy burdens." -- from the rear panel blurb. First English Translation.
