Men Trapped in Men's Bodies: Narratives of Autogynephilic Transsexualism - Focus on Sexuality Research (Paperback)Anne A. Lawrence (author)
- We can order this
These narratives about autogynephilia by autogynephilic male-to-female (MtF) transsexuals provide the first comprehensive documentation of the erotic ideation that underlies the most common form of MtF transsexualism. The narratives provide empirical evidence for Blanchard's theory of MtF transsexual motivation, and thus are of interest to researchers and theorists studying the phenomenology of MtF transsexualism. The narratives are likely to be eye-opening to psychologists, psychiatrists, physicians, and other professionals who work with MtF transsexuals: Most clinicians probably do not fully appreciate the erotic underpinnings of their clients' condition. A better understanding of their clients' autogynephilic feelings and motivations would enable these professionals to provide more empathetic and effective clinical care.

"In this highly informative book, Lawrence analyzes theory and research on autogynephilia and presents excerpts from a rich array of first-person narratives collected from autogynephilic individuals. ... Her prose is clear, crisp, precise, and facilitates understanding of a complex phenomenon. In sum, Lawrence has written a book that will be of great value to researchers, clinicians, lay people, and, perhaps most importantly of all, to people who experience autogynephilic feelings and desires." (Richard A. Lippa, Archives of Sexual Behavior, Vol. 44, 2015)
