Clinical Frontiers and the Three Phases of Sexuality: Proception, Acception and Conception

  • John Money


Enlargement of today’s knowledge of the differentiation and development of human sexuality most certainly should bring with it a new academic tradition, namely, the establishment of an independent department of sexology in most, if not all, medical schools. Today there is a new trend to match gynecology with andrology, at least in divisions, if not full departments. That is not enough, for sexuality is a mutual, not a solo, phenomenon. The sexual system of the body is dimorphic, male and female, and the other systems are not. Disorders of the sexual system are disorders of a partnership, involving and affecting each partner. That is why sexology needs to be its own discipline, specializing in the partnership.
