A brilliant and illuminating exploration of one man's sexual odyssey, written by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb and A Hole in the World.

Making Love marks the first time a major author has written with such unapologetic candor of his most intimate experiences, fantasies, and thoughts. From his sexual coming of age to his work with ESO (Extended Sexual Orgasm), Richard Rhodes has created both an insightful memoir and a provocative treatise on sex, taboo, love, and power.
